Fantastic Planet is a 1973 Franco-Czech allegorical cutout stop-motion science fiction film directed by René Laloux and written by Laloux and Roland Topor. This animated tale follows the relationship between the small human-like Oms and their much larger blue-skinned oppressors, the Draags, who rule the planet of Ygam. While the Draags have long kept Oms as illiterate pets, this hierarchy shifts after an Om boy becomes educated, thanks to a young female Draag. The VFX inculcated in this film is excellent and beyond comparison.
