Director Georgiy Danelia made an animated movie of the science fiction comedy “Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza”, which was produced in 1986 in Georgia (Georgia) during the Soviet Union and gained cult popularity all over the world. “Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza” has been released. In 2019, Danelia died of 88 years of age due to pneumonia, and this work is the last word. Film.com has obtained an interview with director Daneriya and co-director Tatiana Irina at the time of the 2013 Russian theater release.
Question to Georgiy Danelia-Why did you decide to animate the live-action “Mysterious Planet Kin the The”? More than 40 years ago, in O. Henry’s novel, I drew a little sketch to make a movie based on “The Ransom of Red Chief”, which was swayed by a naughty priest who was kidnapped by two villains for the purpose of ransom. A friend of mine, Leonid Gaidai, a comedy film director in the Soviet Union and Russia, saw this and said, “Would you like me to make a feature film?” Handing over the sketch, he made a wonderful piece called “Business People” (1963). About 10 years ago, I received an offer from the United States to remake “Mysterious Planet Kin the The”, but to be honest, I was surprised and asked why. Then, I received the answer that the problems raised in the work are still urgent and that these problems will not disappear as long as human beings are alive. At first, I thought it might be okay to retake it, but in the end, I declined. The reason is the cast. I was told that both Americans and Russians could use their favorite actors. However, Evgeny Leonov ( Ue)I didn’t know how to find a replacement for Yury Yakovlev (role of Fu) or Yury Yakovlev (role of Bee). Therefore, I thought that it would be easier to express it if it was an anime character instead of a human being. There was an offer to animate Web and Bee and let the actors play other roles, but I thought it wouldn’t be possible without Stanislav Lubusin (the role of Mashkov). In this way, I became more inclined to anime. The word “Ku!” Appears in the anime version of “Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza” as well as in the live-action version. In 1986, he produced the feature film “Kin The Mysterious Planet”. The anime movie “Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza” has much in common with the feature film. Who came up with the word “Ku!” If I ask, I’ll say I’m, and if I ask Gabriel, who wrote the script with me, I’ll say I’m. Both are honest. We work like volleyball players. Pass over there, pass over here, and so on. There are candidates such as Kuu, Kew, Kay, and Car, and I don’t really know which one said: “let’s make Kuu”. The screenplay and the plot of the movie are similar, but there are some significant differences because I changed the screenplay during the shoot. Part of the difference between a movie and a script is due to censorship. For example, “Ku” was about to be in danger of disappearing. Supreme Leader Leonid Brezhnev(October 1964, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Supreme Leader for 18 years) Shortly after the funeral, the important word “Ku” must be replaced with another word in a hurry. It was about to disappear. Looking at the “Pravda” paper, the name “KU Chernenko” was printed in bold on one side. It was reported that Konstantin Ustinov Chernenko was appointed as Brezhnev’s successor. In Pluck, “KU” means everything, so it is used repeatedly. We thought. “car”? No! “Koh”? Wrong! “Quite”? Maybe … However, both are inferior to the familiar “Ku”. Chernenko died while thinking. The previous Andropov administration (Chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union after Brezhnev’s death, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Supreme Council of the Soviet Union, and a poet) had no effect on our work. Also in 1985, Mikhail Gorbachev when he came to power and launched an anti-alcohol campaign, many problems arose. In the initial setting, Gedevan brought Chacha (moonshine) from Georgia in a bottle of paper. At that time, a decree was in force to impose an eight-year sentence on the manufacture and sale of moonshine. But we’ve already shot this bottle on many occasions and couldn’t retake it. I was depressed, and when I asked Gabriaze what to do, he replied, “Let’s make it Kuu.” And I decided to make Gedevan say that this bottle contains vinegar. What kind of idiot would bring vinegar from Batumi, Georgia to Moscow (laughs)? And I had to remove the wonderful banquet scene from the script. Since this work is an anime, it seems that voice actors with impressive voices have gathered. In the end, very good actors gathered. Whether you’ve worked with them or you’re new to them. For example, Andrey Leonov was chosen to play the role of Weef not because his voice is similar to Evgeny Leonov, who played the same role in the live-action version of “Mysterious Planet Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza.” By the way, in “Ku! Kin-Dza-Dza”, Ref was drawn completely separate from Leonov, but the result is very similar. His father, Evgeny Leonov
