It's from the 1980(?) and was a live action movie about a little boy from outer space which also happens to be a prince. He has a birthmark in the form of a purple star on his chest and can perform telekinesis.

People try to capture him and he's with two comic relief goons who also happen to protect him.

The final bits I remember are battle sequences with anime mechs edited into the live action locations. One mech resembles a crab because it had pincers, the other mech could extend his torso to become a dragon's maw.

    I know exactly what movie you're talking about! I had the German version on VHS, which was called "Der Prinz von den Sternen", so I assume in English it would be something like "The Prince from Space". But I've been looking for information on it online for many years and there seems to be nothing. I still remember the silly surreal fight sequence at the end, and especially one unsettling scene in which someone puts a syringe into the little prince's arm and he has some sort of telekinetic fit. Also at one time he makes a hot chicken wing levitate, in order to cool it down.

  • @Felix - You should ask this as a separate Story-ID question.

  • @Felix - I also want to note that 'sternen' translates to 'stars', not space. A better translation might be 'Prince of the Stars' or 'Prince in the Stars'
