Interstella 5555 is a feature-length anime musical film released on 12/1/2003. The movie is a collaborative project between Daft Punk, Toei Animation and Leiji Matsumoto. Daft Punk provided the music and Matsumoto/Toei provided the animation/direction of the movie.

Each track from the Daft Punk album, Discovery, has been animated as an episode in the story of the abduction and rescue of an interstellar pop band. You might remember that MTV/Cartoon Network aired the first four episodes back in 2001.

Here is the first episode:

Here is a remix that the wriXeL crew has made to Kylie Minogue’s new song “STARS”.

The slick animation style and the amazing music make this movie awesome! The story is great and the music works so well with each scene. If you haven’t watched it yet, we highly recommend it. We give it a stellar 8.65!!
