Watch the restored trailer for Alejandro Jodorowsky and Moebius' never-released sci-fi epic THE INCAL - [Pascal Blais] - [1980]

L'Incal è una serie fantascientifica a fumetti scritta da Alejandro Jodorowsky e illustrata da Moebius. È stata pubblicata originariamente tra il 1981 e il 1988 sulla rivista francese Métal Hurlant, con il titolo Une aventure de John Difool (Un'avventura di John Difool). Ristampata nel 1998, viene ribattezzata L'Incal.
I sei volumi che la compongono sono:
  1. L'Incal nero (1981)
  2. L'Incal luce (1982)
  3. Ciò che è in basso (1983)
  4. Ciò che è in alto (1985)
  5. La quinta essenza 1: Galassia che medita (1988)
  6. La quinta essenza 2: Il pianeta Difool (1988)

In un futuro lontano e distopico il detective John Difool riceve un misterioso oggetto, l'Incal luce, dalle mani di un alieno morente. Molte fazioni sono alla ricerca di questo Incal e John viene coinvolto suo malgrado in una vasta avventura.'Incal

And here's the original unrestored trailer.

A movie trailer project inspired by the graphic novel "The INCAL", from Moebius and Jodorowsky.

A while ago, I reunited a bunch of artists from the original "Heavy Metal" movie to produce a trailer based upon this great work. Then I got busy building my company and it sat on my shelf until a few months back, when I decided to revamp it with today's digital punch.

Two sequences from the original "Heavy Metal" movie were borrowed from Moebius's work; "The Long Tomorrow" story and "Arzach". Given that till this day, Moebius and Jodorowsky are heralded as some of the world's greatest Sci-Fi visionaries; it seems to me that a film, based on their work would be even more successful than one inspired by it.

Bringing these incredible artist's work to the big screen, I am convinced would be a great much so that I animated and directed this piece with other like artists.
