The year after he made A Trip to the Moon, Georges Melies tries his hand at creating a movie about a voyage to the sun. This one isn't as good as A Trip to the Moon unfortunately. The effects are incredible for it's day, but much of what he did in A Trip to the Moon is applied here except it's a voyage to the sun. The only difference would be the voyagers mode of transportation. There's a clever and inventive way in how they get to the sun.
They board a train and the train goes up the side of the tallest mountain before flying off at rapid speed into the sky until it's swallowed up by the sun. The way the moon looked in A Trip to the Moon is done the same way with the sun. Not much different like I said, but still a nice flip flop of roles between the Moon and the Sun.
