Rihanna portrays the role of Bubble in Luc Besson’s upcoming sci-fi film “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.” And to give fans a better look at her unique character, the singer recently shared a behind-the-scenes teaser for the movie on Instagram.

The sneak peek reveals that Bubble is a burlesque dancer who can change her physical appearance at will. While she has the ability to shape-shift into human form, her real figure is actually an amorphous blue blob. Interestingly, Rihanna is seen in a motion capture suit in the preview clip, so it means that the “Work” hitmaker was also the one bringing her character to life even when she’s not in human form.

“I saw how much he cared about this project,” Rihanna said of Besson in the teaser. “Everybody who loves film is a fan of Luc Besson’s work. He’s created this incredible world… I’m so blessed to be having this experience.”

In an interview with Lain Networks earlier this month, Rihanna opened up about what kind of filmmaker Besson is. “Everything he does is so detailed,” the Barbadian superstar said of Besson, whose directing credits include “The Fifth Element,” “Léon: The Professional” and “Lucy.” “He pays attention to everything … like he’s literally coming into the room looking at the makeup. He will [also] fly to see you just to go through costumes, each look, just to see if you like it, if you don’t like it or if you want to change it. He’s really open to that. He wants you to love it and own it and I really I appreciate that.”

“He is especially very patient when it comes to working and directing me,” added Rihanna, whose acting credits includes “Battleship,” “Annie” and “Bates Motel.”  “I’m very new to the movie world and he’s very considerate of that. He knows exactly how to get what he wants out of you and that’s what a director is.”

Although Rihanna is new to big screen projects, Besson had nothing but praise for the “Diamond” songstress. “She was good,” Besson recently said. “She was amazing and so focused. I was surprised by how much she was ready and open to the director ... She was at my service and I was surprised at the beginning. She was so generous.”

Based on the wildly popular French comic book series “Valérian and Laureline,” “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets” follows the story of titular special operatives Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) who are tasked to save the enormous metropolis Alpha from apocalyptic annihilation at the hands of a world-destroying evil.

The film, which also stars Clive Owen and Ethan Hawke, among many others, opens in theaters on July 21.
