Plot summaryEdit

Yietta is a beautiful place, a liquid gas planet with a thriving floating metropolis. As our story begins, this world which depends on exports and tourism is on the verge of buying its independence from the Galactic Federation. However, there are forces out there that have other plans.

This is where Titaniva Mu Koshigaya, owner and captain of the Cha-Cha Maru, gets involved. Rescuing a young woman named Ellyse, Tita and crew are thrown into something she and her crew never intended to be a part of. A plot within Yietta's own military is underway to rob Yietta both of its independence and its money, and with Ellyse on board, the Cha-Cha Maru has just become "IT" in a planet-wide, high-stakes game of tag, with the fate of Yietta's citizens at stake! One difference: this "IT" is ready to fight back against anything and everything the enemies can throw at it. Look out, 'cause Captain Tita's ready to rumble!

  • Emma Watson's costume was made of highly bulletproof material, so she was able to do all her own stunts, though Hilary Duff did her own stuntwork as well.

  • The only planned flat release so far is the IMAX Dome release.
  • Emma Watson announced at a press conference that she would dub her own voice in the Spanish, French, and Japanese language versions.

  • Emma Watson's first IMAX Dome release.
  • The film was shot entirely using chromakey.
  • When Tita electrocutes Roger and Nichol for viewing her and Ellyse in the bathing area from the apparent safety of a water tank, Nichol emits the Wilhelm scream.
