Fantastic Planet

Synopsis

Welcome to Ygam, a far-flung planet where humans are kept as pets by giant blue creatures known as Draags. In this science fiction allegory, legendary illustrator and writer Roland Topor joins René Laloux to tell the story of Terr, a human boy who escapes from his Draag owner. Laloux’s visionary cutout animation brings Topor’s surreal sensibility to life, while composer Alain Goragues blends psychedelic, funk and jazz sounds to create an immersive experience. One of the first French animated features, Fantastic Planet is a mind-bending spectacle for children and adults, as provocative and spellbinding today as it was four decades ago.
