Jim Henson‘s head trip of a movie, The Dark Crystal, has been green-lit for a sequel. The Power Of The Dark Crystal will be directed by Peter & Michael Spierig (Daybreakers) and will feature a mix of puppetry, motion-capture and CGI. The film, which will be released almost 30 years after the original, will be produced by the Jim Henson Company.
“Set hundreds of years after the events of the first movie when the world has once again fallen into darkness, Power of the Dark Crystal follows the adventures of a mysterious girl made of fire who, together with a Gelfling outcast, steals a shard of the legendary Crystal in an attempt to reignite the dying sun that exists at the center of the planet.”
The original is even older than The Whore & it STILL stands the test of time. The sequel sounds interesting. Will YOU be seeing The Power Of The Dark Crystal?
