'Valerian' director Luc Besson can't wait to see an alienThe acclaimed director tells us he's finally been able to make his sci-fi epic now CGI's caught up with the images in his head.
I think imagination is the limit. With the technology you can really basically do everything. I can turn you into an elephant in 3 seconds. Home sweet home. [MUSIC] We have thousand of drawings, we have a bible of 600 pages, the entire world, every aliens one by one, their lives, what they eat, where they're living. Where there's specialty and then about Alpha Station which is the main location in the film which is a space station, 12 kilometers of diameter and 8,000 different species of alien living in it. And we have all this information in a Bible. So when the actors are coming at the beginning for the rehearsal they got this material, they can see the aliens from the side they can see animated. They have the Bible so they feel pretty easily, they feel everything, they're not naked. You have to navigate to first the storytelling that's the most important, what is the story about and the characters. And then after you can put the clothes on. [MUSIC] >. We can see the film just for the fun and the colors, but the main theme is really living together. Today in our society, as soon as you don't have exactly the same color or the same religion Or even worse, the same age, the same size, the same sex. We always, it's always like if we try to find the reason not to be together. What's interesting in the film is now we have to deal with 8000 different kinds of. Species. and then suddenly everybody say, we're brothers. I don't care if you're black or yellow. You're my brother because these guys are aliens for sure. They're not from here. And it's funny to play with that because it shows, in fact, How tricky we still be. We still like thinking in a tricky way. And I can't wait the first alien will come on Earth, because they will, you know, they will take away all the racism and all of, This, we all feel brothers for sure. [BLANK_AUDIO]
