The Mystery of the Third Planet (Russian: Тайна третьей планеты, Tayna tretyey planety), aka The Secret of the Third Planet is a 1981 Soviet traditionally-animated feature film directed by Roman Kachanov and produced by the Soyuzmultfilm studio in Moscow. It is based on one of a series of stories by well-known writer Kir Bulychyov about Alisa (Alice) Seleznyova, a young girl living in the second half of the 22nd century in a communist society (though no aspects of communism are mentioned or shown in the film).



On June 2, 2181, Alice, her father Professor Seleznyov and Captain Green go on a space expedition to find rare animals for Moscow Zoo. On the way, they visit many planets, meet many interesting denizens of the cosmos (such as a flying cow and a chatterbird) and accidentally uncover and become caught up in a criminal conspiracy.

Home video and English adaptations

The film was adapted twice for the US market. It was first brought over as a video release in 1987, with dubbed voices. The second time, it was released in the 1990s as part of Mikhail Baryshnikov's "Stories from My Childhood" series. This series consisted of films that were bought by California-based company Films by Jove from Soyuzmultfilm for the international market. Over $1.5 million was spent by this company restoring the prints, adding new music and redubbing the films with American actors. This version of the film was named Alice and the Mystery of the Third Planet and has been released on VHS as well as on a 1999 DVD collection with several other films [1]. The film has been released on DVD several times (the latest release, which featured rather misleading cover art, was in October 2005 [2]), but there is currently no version which preserves the original Russian voices and music and also has English subtitles. The Films by Jove version of the film has been criticized by some of those who saw the original for adding many extra dialogue lines, shortening the film, and replacing the unique synthesizer music by Alexander Zatsepin.[3]

The original film has been released on several DVD editions in Russia, including a newly-restored one by Krupnyy Plan.


  • In 2005 an arcade platform game was made by the company Akella based on the film, called "Alice's Space Adventure".
  • An adventure game was released in the same year called "Alice's Journey", also produced by Akella (but developed by "Step Creative Group").
