Did you know?

The fantasy genre is characterized by its setting in an “other” world. We are on Earth but in an undefined time and geography. Magic and those who practice it play a fundamental role. It differs from science fiction, which claims to have a scientific or parascientific basis and relies on a precise, albeit futuristic, chronology. It distinguishes itself from the fantasy genre because it does not have a setting belonging to our everyday world. In fantasy films, there is ample space for an imaginary medieval setting with wizards, witches, kings, and knights, although films inspired by other historical periods are not lacking. Audiences are captivated by the invention of imaginary worlds, whose mechanisms are often described in detail, and extraordinary characters, whose stories somehow hark back to the time when fairy tales were appreciated.

In cinema, there have been two successful moments for these films with two different sub-genres: sword and sorcery in the 1980s and high fantasy in the 2000s.
