Based Upon:

Thru the Moebius Strip is based on an idea by Jean “Moebius” Giraud, renowned for his graphic novels and sci-fi art (a stalwart of Heavy Metal). This is an original concept not based on one of Giraud’s books.

What’s a Moebius Strip?:

A Moebius Strip (Möbius Strip) is a loop that twists back in on itself, with only one surface and one edge. You can make one by taking a strip of paper, twisting it once, and gluing the ends together.


Thru the Moebius Strip is described as an intergalactic take on Jack and the Beanstalk, this is the story of physicist Simon Weir, who becomes lost and trapped in a space-time portal he created. Eight years later, his son, Jac Weir, must search for him through a myriad number of planets, filled with wondrous sights and often gigantic beings. Once finding his father, Jac discovers that part of the “rescue” process is going to involve helping his father’s giant alien friend regain his throne.


Computer animation production started in March, 2001 in Shenzhen, China, by a crew of 150 animators. The animation is based upon over 400 sketches by Girard, who personally supervises the entire production from Paris. The animation budget is $8 million.
