Trivia

The animation was started in Prague but had to be moved to Paris to avoid interference by the Communist authorities who were in power at the time.
During production, René Laloux, the only non-Czech working on this film, was almost removed from the production crew. The Czech Production staff wanted a "nationalistic" feel to its production and wanted Josef Kábrt (1920-1989), the film's character graphics designer, to take the part of Director. This never happened and was apparently an "inspiration of the times".
Roland Topor did not spend time on the animation work of La planète sauvage due to its exceedingly lengthy process in Czechoslovakia, a total of five years.
