About Pearl This fanlang is my attempt to flesh out the beautiful Pearl language from the movie Valerian and the City of 1000 Planets. I loved that movie and I loved the Pearls, but there is nothing online about how the language works, so this is my take on what it might look like. But this conlang will likely evolve beyond the movie mythos into its own thing.

-Uses a simple vowel harmony system
-Inspired by French and Finnish

My goal with this language is to make the Pearl parts of the movie understandable.
