Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

Secret of the Cardboard Rocket

Since its original opening, "Cardboard Rocket" continues to play as one of the most popular shows in digital domes around the world!

Embark on an outstanding adventure as two children spend a night touring the solar system alongside their ship's navigator, a talking astronomy book. Produced in 3-dimensional digital animation and a 5.1 soundtrack with spectacular sound effects created at George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.

In 2007, the narration track was edited to take into account the reclassification of Pluto as a Dwarf Planet. The voices were not re-narrated - we simply made a few key changes to the original soundtrack. We removed all references to Pluto as the "ninth planet" or "smallest planet" or "last planet" but we still call it a "planet." We view Pluto as a new category of planet.
