Director Bio

René Laloux (1929-2004) was a French animator and film director known for Fantastic Planet (1973), Gandahar (1988), and Time Masters (1982).


Having worked with the highly influential artist/designer Jean Giraud, alias Moebius, on Les Maîtres du temps (1982) Laloux next enlisted the help of another superb French artist of the time, Phillippe Caza. This was the start of an important artistic relationship for Laloux, he and Caza collaborating on several films, including Laloux’s final feature, the magnificent Gandahar (1988). Based on a story by Jean-Pierre Andrevon, this gloriously imaginative science fiction features themes of ecology and identity, and was considered by Laloux to be his masterpiece.
