It’s the 29th century. We're on Ganymede, one of
Jupiter’s moons. The human race has long since left a decimated Earth. To
survive the harsh climates of other planets and moons, humans have
genetically modified themselves making skin color and sexual organs a
common matter of fashion.
Two beautiful musicians, Parker, a soulful
saxophonist, and Naia, an impish guitarist, play center stage. They move
almost as one, a seamless harmony developed over the years from the
bonding and sharing in their struggle to get just this far in their
Unfortunately, fame is about to tear them apart.
This is the last gig they will ever play together.
A spaced-out animated flick with Moebius and Pink
Floyd! You’d think it’s the ‘Seventies again!
Info on this Hawaiian-made (!) full-length animated
feature is frustratingly scarce to come by, but we do know the following:
(a) Actor Jason Scott Lee will be lending his voice
talents to it. Lee has previously done voice work for the various
Lilo & Stitch movies and TV episodes.
According to an official press release this 42-year old actor has
amazingly starred in more than 20 features thus far, including Dragon:
The Bruce Lee Story, Timecop,
Jungle Book, and Map of the Human Heart!
(b) Legendary French comic book artist Jean "Moebius"
Giraud is somehow involved with the project, which would explain the whole
Heavy Metal vibe! (Heavy Metal
as in not the music, but the comics, which in turn inspired the two
Heavy Metal movies made thus far.)
(c) Strange Frame will feature a song from
Pink Floyd. Unfortunately it isn’t a new song, but The Gunner’s Dream,
taken from their depressing 1983 album about Thatcherism and Roger Waters’
divorce, The Final Cut. You know, the song in which Waters really really
sounds like John Lennon . . .
So what does all this mean? We dunno. But it all
sounds weird enough to want to check out when it gets released in the
States in November of 2009!
