Space Cadet – Director Liz W. Garcia Interview

Space Cadet is a new Prime Video comedy film with Emma Roberts, Tom Hopper, Gabrielle Union, Poppy Liu, and more, and comes from filmmaker Liz W. Garcia. She spoke with MovieWeb’s Will Sayre about Space Cadet, which hits Prime Video on July 4, 2024.


Tiffany “Rex” Simpson (Emma Roberts) has always dreamed of going to space, but life isn’t going quite as planned. Determined to turn things around, she aims high and with the embellishing touch of her supportive best friend Nadine (Poppy Liu), her “doctored” application lands her in NASA’s ultra-competitive astronaut training program. In over her head, Rex relies on her quick wits, moxie and determination to get to the top of her class. NASA program directors Pam (Gabrielle Union) and Logan (Tom Hopper) certainly take notice, but can this Florida girl get through training and into the cosmos before she blows her cover? Written and directed by Liz W. Garcia (“Purple Hearts,” “The Sinner”), Space Cadet is a comedy about the power of being yourself, following your dreams and shooting for the stars.
