Roy del espacio.jpg

Promotional poster containing a still from the movie.

Status: Lost

Roy Del Espacio (aka Roy From Space) was a Mexican animated movie directed by Hector Lopez Carmona, Rafael Angel Gil and Ulises P. Aguirre that was in production from 1979 to 1982, being released in theaters in Mexico City on March 3, 1983[1]. However, the end result was apparently of really poor quality, so much that the movie was pulled from theaters only two days after its premiere. The movie was never broadcast on TV nor released on home video, and information about it or its creators is almost nonexistent.

Alternative poster found

In December 2020, an alternative poster from the movie was listed on Ebay, and it is currently for sale. This poster does not have any movie still as the other one shown on this page. Regarding the origin of the item, the seller claims it comes from a "regional film archive in Mexico that had serviced 20 theaters for 50 years from the 1930s to the 1980s". It also shows on the left top corner the logo of the distribution company, Aguirre Valdez Productores y Distribuidores de Películas S.A., along with the contact information, but there is no certainty if the company is still operating as there is no information online about it.

This new poster, along with the one containing both original art and a black and white still, are the only visual information of any kind available about the movie.
