“Flatland 2: Sphereland” Movie

Here’s an interesting educational film inspired by the world of Flatland by Edwin Abbott Abbott and Sphereland by Dionys Burger, featuring the voices of Kristen Bell, Danny Pudi, Michael York, Danica McKellar, Tony Hale, and Kate Mulgrew — we are looking forward to checking this out!

The creators of “Flatland: The Movie” return to Flatland for another adventure beyond the third dimension, based on Edwin A. Abbot’s Flatland and Dionys Burger’sSphereland.

Set on the eve of Flatland’s first mission into their ‘outer-space” the story presents the intriguing mysteries of triangles with angle sums greater than 180 degrees and flipping into dimensions that are literally out of this world . Full of action, humor and lessons, “Sphereland” will delight and educate audiences of all ages.

  1. So, they bring this up to a movie. I remember Carl Sagan had this “theory” of a 2 dimensional land made of paper and was kicked into the 3rd dimension with an apple, saw his 2 dimensional world, then when he returned into his own 2 dimensional world, he wasn’t able to point out where the 3rd dimension was. Cool!

  2. I was just about to post the same thing as Lars!

    It’s a great explanation of the 4th dimension by Dr. Sagan.
