‘Earth to Echo’ is something of an anomaly in Hollywood. A family friendly film that contains no swearing and a message of friendship and loyalty that may remind viewers of their favorite films from the ‘80s. In “Earth to Echo,” a group of kids begin receiving strange, encrypted messages on their mobile phones and decide to investigate the cause. During their adventure, they befriend an alien whom they name Echo all while documenting every moment of their saga on their mobile phones. The idea for the film came from producer Andrew Panany, who drew his inspiration from family favorites like “E.T.,” “The Goonies” and “Stand By Me.” But instead of relying on nostalgia, Panay wanted to showcase the wealth of technology that’s readily available to the current generation.
