Dane DeHaan, title star of the forthcoming sci-fi movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, last night unveiled a replica of the Skyjet, a futuristic pursuit aircraft created for the film with support from Lexus designers. The presentation took place in Miami as part of a showcase for the luxury brand’s latest products and lifestyle activities.

The Valerian team wanted the Skyjet to be grounded in reality, yet befitting the world of the adventure, set 700 years in the future. The film’s creatives collaborated with designers at Lexus to incorporate contemporary design cues, adapted from its current model range.

Dane De Haan said: “I have always wanted to work with (Valerian director) Luc Besson because he really hones in on every single detail in his films, bringing the narrative to life in the most imaginative way possible. The collaboration on the Skyjet is a great example of this. Valerian’s epic chase scenes with the Skyjet are to be some of the most exhilarating moments in the film.”

Watch our innovative far-future engineering and imaginative technologies come to life as the Valerian SKYJET delivers an exhilarating performance in the epic new trailer for VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS.

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS is the visually spectacular new adventure film from Luc Besson, the legendary director of The Professional, The Fifth Element and Lucy, based on the ground-breaking comic book series which inspired a generation of artists, writers and filmmakers.

In the 28th century, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) are a team of special operatives charged with maintaining order throughout the human territories. Under assignment from the Minister of Defense, the two embark on a mission to the astonishing city of Alpha—an ever-expanding metropolis where species from all over the universe have converged over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence and cultures with each other. There is a mystery at the center of Alpha, a dark force which threatens the peaceful existence of the City of a Thousand Planets, and Valerian and Laureline must race to identify the marauding menace and safeguard not just Alpha, but the future of the universe.

About the SKYJET
The Valerian team created the SKYJET with the ambition of featuring a vehicle grounded in reality but befitting of the Valerian world, set 700 years in the future. The creative team met with Lexus’ Chief Engineer, Takeaki Kato and the Lexus design team, to discuss incorporating believable, imaginative technologies and contemporary design cues into the final iteration of the SKYJET. The SKYJET design also incorporates an adapted interpretation of Lexus’ signature “spindle” grille, and a similar headlight design to that of the hotly anticipated Lexus LC coupe, defined by an athletic and aerodynamic shape.
