In the 1980s, the creative team of Jim Henson and Brian Froud, together with Frank Oz and George Lucas, collaborated on two ambitious film projects: The Dark Crystal
. While Labyrinth
(incredibly exhaustive fan site here
) was more lively and featured actors as well as puppets, The Dark Crystal
embodied a darker vision and featured only puppets. Rumors have circulated in the last few years that a sequel to The Dark Crystal,
entitled The Power of the Dark Crytal
, is in production. While the status of the film is still up in the air, there is a blog for the project
that contains a video of new concept art.
