I'll do my best to remember everything I can -

The very first scene is a father that is combining a crop, he is using a futuristic machine as this movie involves space, aliens, etc.

The planet ends up being destroyed very early in the movie, the father dies but the son who is about 17-20 is taken away on a spaceship. I believe he is knocked unconscious.

This is where it gets harder to remember. There ends up being a planet they land on where there are pink fuzzy like tentacles I believe that end up capturing them. But they are saved by a flying alien that has guns attached to his hips. Best way to kinda explain him, piccolo with a mask and wings.

Later the protagonists end up dealing with slugs that are trying to eat them.

The main protagonist ends up being badly injured, an old guy I believe takes care of him.

Then the end is him going to a weird dance like party to save his friends.

This is about the best amount of detail I can give, it's a very strange movie but was recorded on vhs and never was written down what is was called. So I have no idea.

Hope you all can help.

  • This sounds oddly like "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" – user7812 Nov 16 '15 at 15:46
  • Titan A.E.? Maybe a duplicate of movies.stackexchange.com/questions/40906/… – Francisco V. Nov 16 '15 at 15:48
  • Sadly not Titan ae, as well the one character is more like an early cell than piccolo. I believe it's more of an anime than cartoon. – Wheeels63 Nov 16 '15 at 18:30

Lensman, (1984), loosely based on Edward E "Doc" Smith's "Lensman" books.

Kimball Kinnison, a young man from the agricultural planet Mquie and his Valerian companinon, Buscirk find a dying man with a legendary crystal lens embedded in his hand. As the man was dying, he mysteriously passed on the Lens to Kim. With more companions to come by, Kim must find out the purpose of the Lens before the Boskone dynasty does.

The movie is available on Youtube. The scene with the pink fuzzy tentacles is here. The flying alien with guns attached to his hips is "Worsel". The weird dance party is DJ'ed by "DJ Bill".
