Sydney Sweeney is headed to space.

In that film, Fonda played the titular character, an adventurer sent into deep space to find a scientist whose creation threatens all of humanity.

Though it wasn’t a massive box office success, the film certainly went on to achieve cult status — and the character’s costumes are regulars at comic conventions.
