The Incal – Trailer for unreleased Moebius Animationfilm

(Youtube Direktincal, via Daniel)

Alejandro Jodorowsky arbeitete 1981 mit Moebius an einer Verfilmung seiner Incal-Comicreihe, aus dem Ergebnis dieser Arbeit schnitt der kanadische Regisseur Pascal Blais Mitte der 80er Jahre zusammen mit den Animatoren von „Heavy Metal“ einen Trailer, wirklich umgesetzt wurde das Projekt allerdings nie. Jetzt hat Blais den Trailer restauriert. Awesome!

A while ago, I reunited a bunch of the artists from the original "Heavy Metal" movie to produce a trailer based upon this great work. Then I got busy building my company and it sat on shelf until a few months back, when I decided to revamp it with today's digital punch.

Two sequences from the original "Heavy Metal" movie were borrowed from Moebius's work; "The Long Tomorrow" story and "Arzach". Given that till this day, Moebius and Jodorowsky are heralded as some of the world's greatest Sci-Fi visionaries; it seems to me that a film, based on their work would be even more successful than one inspired by it.
