Fantastic Planet is a 1973 stop-motion animated science fiction film directed by Rene Laloux. Set on a distant planet named Ygam, it tells the story of “Oms,” human-like creatures kept as domestic pets by an alien species called “Draags.” The narrative follows one Om named Terr, who incites a revolution for freedom. The film is renowned for its surreal, psychedelic imagery, unique cut-out animation style, and allegorical narrative about human rights. It won the Special Jury Prize at the 1973 Cannes Film Festival and has since gained cult status for its otherworldly creativity.
