“Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green and good – until the Crystal cracked.”

Narrator, The Dark Crystal

On another planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal and restore order to his world. Jim Henson and Frank Oz direct this much-loved family fantasy. Henson, famous for his work on The Muppets, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock, puts his puppets to work on a grander, more epic scale than usual. The Dark Crystal buzzes with energy and invention and, thirty years on, retains its ability to frighten and draw audiences into its twisted lore. This should be a real treat on the big screen.
