A very fun edit, visually stunning and innovative. I enjoyed the more subtle romance between Valerian and Laureline in this edit rather than the heavy-handed and forced romance of the original, which allowed for a much better flow of the story.

However, while the removal of the marriage conversations improved one aspect of the story, the removal the Princess subplot, while preserving an air of mystery, was also confusing when the flashback to the prisoner's death scene was used to explain the possession of Valerian. For the sake of clarity, I would have retained it. Also, I felt the removal of Bubble's death scene was unnecessary. The raising of the tentacle in this version made it seem like she was alive and Valerian and Laureline just left her there in the rubble rather than confirming if she was alive or not. The ending in this version felt abrupt, though I understand why the kiss and the accompanying exchange of bad dialogue was removed.

Overall, I highly recommend. Well done!
