Night Owl CLASSIC FEATURE ::: Tonight’s film :::  CELEBRATING an animated masterpiece La Planète Sauvage “FANTASTIC PLANET” (French, 1973)

On the fantastic planet of Ygam, located in a far solar system, a race of huge blue creatures called Draags keep Oms as domesticated pets. Oms are the descendants of the human survivors of Earth, comparably antlike in size and mistreated by the Draags. With the aid of a Draag knowledge device, an escaped orphaned Om manages to unite a society of wild Oms to revolt against their oppression. The wild Oms attack the Draags in their most vulnerable spot, a mystical moon orbiting around their home world: a moon which holds a powerful secret to the Draags’ existence.

FANTASTIC PLANET (French: La Planète sauvage, Czech: Divoká planeta, lit. The Wild Planet) is an international production between France and Czechoslovakia and was distributed in the United States by Roger Corman. The story, which shows humans living on a strange planet dominated by giant humanoid aliens who consider them animals, is based on the 1957 novel Oms en série by French writer Stefan Wul.  A working title for the film while it was in development was Sur la planète Ygam (On the Planet Ygam),[2] which is where most of the story takes place, but the actual title (the Fantastic/Savage Planet) is the name of Ygam’s moon. The film won the special jury prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival
