Luc Besson, the brain behind the popular sci-fi movies The Fifth Element and Lucy, is back with one of his biggest and most cherished sci-fi projects Valerian and the City of A Thousand Planets. The movie is based on popular French comic series titled Valerian and Laureline, and Besson is a self-proclaimed fan of the series. So much so that he claims that he fell in love with Laureline when he first read the comic book and wanted to become the Valerian. The master craftsman waited for more than two decades to finally the make his dream film.

Luc reminisces that long before he became a writer and director, he was a young boy transfixed by Valerian and Laureline.“When I was 10 years old, I’d go to the kiosk every Wednesday. One time, I found this magazine called Pilote. Inside, I discovered Valerian and Laureline. I thought, ‘Oh my God, what is this thing?’ That day, I fell in love with Laureline, and I wanted to be Valerian”, adds Luc.

Besson quickly became addicted to the engrossing graphic serials written by French author Pierre Christin and boldly illustrated by Jean-Claude Mézières, devouring all 22 volumes.

“It was the 1970s, and it was the first time we saw this modern girl kicking ass,” he shares. “It was not about the superhero with the cape. This was much more light and free and enjoyable because Laureline and Valerian were like two normal cops today — except it’s the 28th century, and everything is weird and amazing.”
