Buku is an indie movie, a novel series and a comic series set in a near future where there are no borders.
It’s about an alien race who have developed artificial intelligence and use it to create a race of super-intelligent aliens known as buku.
(Yes, there’s a buku, too.)
This series follows Buku and her team of alien-creators who go about building a buku colony on Mars, only to find that their creations, the bukus, have developed super-human powers and are causing havoc on Earth.
But there’s more to the buku story than that.
This is Buku: the movie series, the comic series and the book series.
In this episode of EW’s Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast, EW writer Dan O’Sullivan explores the origin stories of Buku, the sci-fier genre, and the movie franchise that made Buku a global phenomenon.
