The series has long been suspected to be a key visual influence on ''Franchise/StarWars'', which it predates by a decade. More directly, it also influenced ''Film/TheFifthElement'', for which Mézières was actually hired to draw some décors and machines.

* TakeThat: The creators did a gentle dig at ''Star Wars'' in one illustration where Valérian and Laureline meet Luke and Leia (circa ''Return of the Jedi'') in a space bar, with the conversation along the lines of:
-->'''Leia:''' Nice meeting you here!
-->'''Laureline:''' Oh, we've been around for a long time!

The series was a key influence on ''Franchise/StarWars'' even though George Lucas won't acknowledge it (it is proven he owns the comic books though - Laureline wore a gold bikini a few years before Leia, Valérian was frozen in a big block of animation suspending crystal, some big villains are badly scarred humans hiding under dark masks, also most aliens in the movies are taken almost straight from the comics, and ''The Phantom Menace'' design director Doug Chiang owned several ''Valérian'' albums in his library...) and ''Film/TheFifthElement'', where Mézières was actually hired to draw some décors and machines.
