Not a Besson fan since, what, Fifth Element?
But as a long, long term Valerian & Laureline fan, it's great to finally see it in the spotlight it deserves, with a big-budget adaptation directed by a true fan.
Fun fact: Besson made Fifth Element (with the help of V&L illustrator Mézières) because he couldn't make a faithful adaptation of Valeiran with the budget and technologies at the time.
Fun fact bis: Star Wars is actually a Valreian knock-off. (A great knock-off, and not only a Valreian knock-off, and I'm a Star Wars fan after all, but still)
