Trailer for Animated Version of Moebius and Jodorowsky's 'The Incal'
"Here I was staring at it - the origin of everything." This is awesome! Animator Pascal Blais has whipped up a trailer for an adaptation of Moebius & Jodorowsky's graphic novel 'The Incal', published between 1981 and 2014. Blais brought together artists who helped make the original Heavy Metal movie, which featured a few sequences based on Moebius' work, to make this project. It's not an actual production but rather just a passion project and Blais finally polished a few bits and released the trailer online. I wish they were really planning to release the full film, because I would pay to watch this in a heartbeat. Not only is it cool to see some of the animation in this, but it seems like a fun and exciting story to see especially nowadays. Dive in.
Description from Vimeo: "A movie trailer project inspired by the graphic novel 'The Incal', from Moebius and Jodorowsky." Made by Pascal Blais and his animation studio in France. The story is about John Difool, a low-class detective in a degenerate dystopian world, finds his life turned upside down when he discovers an ancient, mystical artifact called "The Incal." Difool’s adventures will bring him into conflict with the galaxy’s greatest warrior, the Metabaron, and will pit him against the awesome powers of the Technopope. Blais says he "a bunch of artists from the original Heavy Metal movie" to make this trailer. "I am convinced would be a great success," he says. Same here. For more info, visit the Vimeo page.
