Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem, the feature-length Japanese animated musical film, is finally available on BLU-RAY on 19 September 2011.
The film is the visual realisation of Daft Punk’s ‘Discovery’ album. Each track from the album was animated as an episode in the story of the abduction and rescue of an interstellar pop band. The film was produced by Daft Punk, Cédric Hervet along with Toei Animation, under the supervision of Leiji Matsumoto.
The idea for Interstella 5555 formed during the early ‘Discovery’ recording sessions. Daft Punk’s concept for the film involved the merging of science fiction with entertainment industry culture and was further developed with their collaborator Cédric Hervet.
All three brought the album and the completed story to Tokyo in the hope of creating the film with their childhood hero, Leiji Matsumoto. Many elements common to Matsumoto’s stories, such as a romanticism of noble sacrifice and remembrance of fallen friends, appear in Interstella 5555.
An exclusive Daft Punk bundle is available via Recordstore.co.uk it includes the Blu-ray DVD ‘Interstella 5555’ and an limited edition A2 lithograph film artwork print on FSC accredited heavyweight board with vegetable based inks. Each of these prints will be hand numbered.
