Cute But Deadly 'Galaxy Quest' (1999) Concept Art by Jordu Schell

The movie Galaxy Quest (1999) had a bunch of amazing creatures. Some of the most memorable were the "Cute But Deadly Aliens." One of the creature designers was Jordu Schell (300, Avatar, Face\Off) and he shared some of his designs on his site.





For reference, here's what they looked like in the movie.

What do you think of the illustrations? Would you take any of them home as a pet?

  1. They look like illustrations for a kids book. Speaking of kids, I think those "cute but deadly" aliens are a lot like mine. :)

  2. Only if by pet you mean I can keep them chained at intervals and use them like a defensive perimeter. That would be the only way.

  3. Most of those were more deadly than cute. I thought the final version was the best.
