  • Two things: It's pronounced Ky-ena, it's on the front cover. 2) The Snorks is a short running cartoon from the 1980's about aquatic beings with snorkels sticking out of the tops of their heads, with mostly non-violent problems to solve...

  • At the very least they could have used the weird realism to some effect. They could have had the Gayans be more stylized and cartoony and things in the real world be more realistic.

  • I remember seeing full-page ads for this movie in a French magazine (Pif Gadget), but I never managed to get a hold of any footage. I knew it was going to be terrible, even as I kid I had a knack to smell out animated dreck, but I was curious, It was just impossible to find anything about "Le monde fabuleux de Gaya" When I saw the characters in the thumbnail, it just unlocked forgotten memories from over a decade ago. I recognized that shit immediately even without having seen the movie, and oh boy it looks just as bad as I expected it to be. Review Kaena: the prophecy, s'il vous-plaît, Monsieur Éteincelle-de-sabre.

  • I'll never understand why they animate things to "look" real....just film real life....if you can't for some reason then make props combined with cg, cg should be last resort.....of course it IS cheap so that's why they ALL go for it, unfortunately the consequence is that now almost everything looks like shit. Yay.

  • I remember when this came out! A few of my friends really wanted to jump in on it during the old deviantArt days (making OCs, writing fanfics, the usual) but I never really liked the characters and the movie bored me to death about half-way through. I literally forgot they went through a portal to the real world AND THAT SEEMS TO BE A BIG PART! A friend I had kept trying to get me into it but I felt so shitty not being interested at all. Cut to today and I learn it wasn't even that big of a deal to begin with. haha
