In the year 2257, and Altair 4, a distant colony, has three inhabitants; Professor Morbius, his bewitching daughter, and a dutiful robot, named Robby, who speaks 188 languages. When a space cruiser from Earth lands on the planet a deadly secret is revealed that could spell doom for all on the planet... Forbidden Planet is the granddaddy of tomorrow, a pioneering work whose ideas and style would be reverse-engineered into many cinematic space voyages to come. Shakespeare's "The Tempest" is transformed into this landmark science-fiction film, which featuring sets of extraordinary scale and the first all-electronic musical soundscape in film history, Forbidden Planet is in a movie orbit all its own!
