The Movie

Forbidden Planet is a 1956 science fiction film and a subsequent novelization by W.J. Stuart. The film features a number of spectacular special effects (Oscar nominated), groundbreaking use of an all-electronic music score, and the first screen appearance of the famous Robby the Robot. The film's characters and setting were inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, though the plot is very different. Also notable is its very effective execution and use of well designed sets, props, matte paintings and soundstage scenic paintings. The film has a running time of 98 minutes.

In the early 2200s, the United Planets Cruiser C-57D is sent to the planet Altair IV in the Alpha Aquilae star system, to find out what happened to the Bellerophon Expedition, sent out some twenty years earlier. As their ship arrives after a year's voyage, the crew detects some immense power source scanning the ship. They contact a survivor, Doctor Edward Morbius (Walter Pidgeon), who warns them to leave, but will not say why. Upon landing, they are met by Robby the Robot, who takes them to Morbius' home. Morbius explains that a year after the expedition's arrival, some unknown force wiped out nearly everyone in his party. Only he, his wife (who later died of natural causes), and his infant daughter (now a beautiful young woman) survived...

The City of chessy

Chessy is a commune in the eastern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located 30.6 km. (19 miles) from the center of Paris. It is famous as the location of Disneyland Resort Paris, which lies for the most part on the territory of the commune. It is located in Val d'Europe, the fastest growing sector of the "new town" of Marne-la-Vallée, boosted by the development of Disneyland Resort Paris. A village of only 760 inhabitants in 1982, Chessy was since then absorbed by the suburbs of Paris, and due to booming demographic growth the population reached 2,418 at the 2004 census. When current development projects are completed, the population of Chessy is expected to reach 6,000.

It reminded me a spot set on another planet. That’s why I named it “Forbidden Planet”.
