Galactic Canine Space Force is a 2D animated student film, created and directed by Anya Amarillo.

A high schooler opens a magical package, unfortunately, it isn’t addressed to him.


One night, a weirdly cute rocket falls onto a playground in the suburbs. Ruben, a high school student who watched it land on the woodchips goes to investigate. Once he discovers its fantastical contents, he can't help but feel jealous that his best friend was chosen to be a magical girl, but is also embarrassed about wanting to take the traditionally female role. He eventually learns that he doesn’t need to worry about how others see him, especially if they love him as he is.
