Conlangs in fiction/movies

The thread on conlangs in music got me curious about other conlangs that
have been used on-screen or in popular books.  Resources are easy to find
regarding Klingon and Quenya.  Personally, I'd also be interested in seeing
published references about Vulcan (also done by Marc Okrand, of Klingon
fame.  Sadly, I've spoken to Mr. Okrand, and he informed me that no Vulcan
Dictionary is forthcoming.)

But, the conlang I'm especially interested in is The Language Before Time,
from the movie "The Fifth Element".  I've found enough information to
determine that it *is* a true conlang, created by Luc Besson, the
writer/director of the movie.  And also that Besson and the actress Milla
Jovovich were able to have conversations in the language by the end of the
movie's production.

I like the sound of the language, and I'm curious to find web or published
resources about it, if they're available ...
