    Man, you have to watch the first brazilian computer animation movie, Cassiopeia, this movie is also the first movie done all in computer, no scans of scuptures, and a lot of old computers, the movie is not good or beautiful, but it's a piece of history

    At the very least they could have used the weird realism to some effect. They could have had the Gayans be more stylized and cartoony and things in the real world be more realistic.

    I remember seeing full-page ads for this movie in a French magazine (Pif Gadget), but I never managed to get a hold of any footage. I knew it was going to be terrible, even as I kid I had a knack to smell out animated dreck, but I was curious, It was just impossible to find anything about "Le monde fabuleux de Gaya" When I saw the characters in the thumbnail, it just unlocked forgotten memories from over a decade ago. I recognized that shit immediately even without having seen the movie, and oh boy it looks just as bad as I expected it to be. Review Kaena: the prophecy, s'il vous-plaît, Monsieur Éteincelle-de-sabre.

    This movie is horrible, but you are lucky for watching the english dub instead of the brazilian... The voice actors for this movie were the hosts of a "comedy" show named 'Panico". And that sucked...

    When you said it was from Germany, I first thought "God, please no" But then I realized That THIS was the movie I had seen SO many years ago as a child, and to this day sometimes thought about, but all I could remember was that kissing scene. But it bothered me so much that I didn't know the name. You gave my mind some peace

    I'll never understand why they animate things to "look" real....just film real life....if you can't for some reason then make props combined with cg, cg should be last resort.....of course it IS cheap so that's why they ALL go for it, unfortunately the consequence is that now almost everything looks like shit. Yay.

  52. Kinetic



    I remember when this came out! A few of my friends really wanted to jump in on it during the old deviantArt days (making OCs, writing fanfics, the usual) but I never really liked the characters and the movie bored me to death about half-way through. I literally forgot they went through a portal to the real world AND THAT SEEMS TO BE A BIG PART! A friend I had kept trying to get me into it but I felt so shitty not being interested at all. Cut to today and I learn it wasn't even that big of a deal to begin with. haha

The animation may be a bit jarring from time to time and the story might be a little weird, but I enjoy them even still. I can understand and admit these movies do have mistakes and faults. However I can still enjoy and look back on them fondly.😊💖

    You know, with all the slag and crap that is passed off as a "movie" today, nobody has room to talk about an experimental movie. It is always easy to complain about a "bad first try" - the CGI movie Back to Gaya was among the first of its kind. Before that only parts of a movie had been done in CGI - and not very good either. A movie that is completely made in CGI was still new to a large extent. Even Shrek had not tried to make realistic skin textures and such yet. Also most movies do not depend on the skills of its makers but purely on marketing. And as you said yourself, WB blow the marketing pretty much out the window it was not the best. For a childrens movie with experimental uses I think it went not so bad.
