​Valerian and Laureline, the French comic-book (bande-dessinée) which inspired Star Wars

Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézieres' science fiction series Valérian and Laureline is one of the most influential French comics of all time. It originally started its run in the late 1960s, and the series' second story The Empire of a Thousand Planets illustrates how it has provided many visual cues for George Lucas' Star Wars franchise. The inspiration doesn't stop at the visuals but also the universe and key elements of George Lucas’ saga, as this talk by Stefan Rousseau will demonstrate. 

It also had an especially significant effect on Luc Besson. The director not only used the influence of Valérian and Laureline to craft the world of the hugely successful The Fifth Element (Mézieres, the visual artist who draws the comic, even did the early concept art).  Besson is so obsessed with the Valerian saga that he just finished directing an adaptation of the comics that is  the most expensive French film ever made.

And the Valerian and Laureline saga is still going on strong with 50 years, 24 episodes and more than 2.5 millions books sold worlwide. A talk for SF aficionados, introducing the amazing world of French/Belgian science-fiction comics of the 60's, 70's and 80's.

​Valerian and Laureline, the French comic-book (bande-dessinée) which inspired Star Wars

Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézieres' science fiction series Valérian and Laureline is one of the most influential French comics of all time. It originally started its run in the late 1960s, and the series' second story The Empire of a Thousand Planets illustrates how it has provided many visual cues for George Lucas' Star Wars franchise. The inspiration doesn't stop at the visuals but also the universe and key elements of George Lucas’ saga, as this talk by Stefan Rousseau will demonstrate. 

It also had an especially significant effect on Luc Besson. The director not only used the influence of Valérian and Laureline to craft the world of the hugely successful The Fifth Element (Mézieres, the visual artist who draws the comic, even did the early concept art).  Besson is so obsessed with the Valerian saga that he just finished directing an adaptation of the comics that is  the most expensive French film ever made.

And the Valerian and Laureline saga is still going on strong with 50 years, 24 episodes and more than 2.5 millions books sold worlwide. A talk for SF aficionados, introducing the amazing world of French/Belgian science-fiction comics of the 60's, 70's and 80's.
