Time Jam

Sentai Filmworks have acquired a new series for sci-fi fans to enjoy. Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline is a 2007 adaptation of an old French comic that is known for influencing classics like the Star Wars series and The Fifth Element. Check out the press release below for more information:


Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of the French-Japanese animated series Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline. This 2007 production is based on the 1967 French comic series that is lauded as a cornerstone for the science-fiction genre, influencing intergalactic masterpieces such as Star Wars and The Fifth Element.

 

In the year 2417, a dashing space cadet named Valerian travels to the year 912 where he breaks the rules and rescues a beautiful, and highly intelligent, peasant girl named Laureline. When his actions make the Earth disappear from the solar system, as the only humans left in the galaxy, Valerian and Laureline begin a new life as adventurers through time and space in hopes of restoring the Earth. Meanwhile, the two must also work together in a galaxy threatened by the sinister Vlagosian armada!

 

Action, adventure, romantic rivalry, and mystery abound in Time Jam: Valerian & Laureline! The complete 40-episode series will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

    WHAAAAAA!!!??? There’s a Valerian and Laureline cartoon!? Daaaamn, I never knew. And I feel I should have, given that I’m a native French-speaker who read that series when I was younger.
