Molly: Star-Racer (also known as Oban Star Racer) is an animated 26 episode series created and produced by the French
animation studio "Sav! The World". The artwork is a combination of genres, blending western
influences into a fluid 2D/3D alloy.
The human race
is poised on the brink of extinction, as Earth's closest neighbouring species, the Crogs, has turned out to be hostile. In order to prevent this imminent annihilation, the tomboyish
Molly and her co-pilot Hugo must overcome all odds
and achieve victory.
The series chronicles a race between the universe's greatest pilots in a chance to claim the "Ultimate Prize", a wish. The contest is sponsored by The Avatar
, an enigmatic force who possesses near unlimited power.
Among her opponents are:
A monk with telekinetic super-powers that seem to equal those of the Avatar himself.
- Prince Aika
A Nourasian Prince with whom she has a crush.
- Lord Furter
Captain of a space-galleon, as bad-tempered as he is egocentric.
- Colonel Toros
The cruel, treacherous Crog officer and Molly's most threatening opponent both on Arouas and later on Oban.
- Ning and Skun
Two very proud and frightening Inna warriors.
