  • The Power of The Dark Crystal

    Disney is making a sequel to the Dark Crystal. The title is The Power of the Dark Crystal. Here's a little bit about it from the Cinescape website in an article about composer Trevor Jones:

    Why do I think this is a bad idea?

    Is it skepticism? No...

    Is it because the purpose of the film was to test wether Jim Henson could create a puppet version of LOTR? May be....

    Is it the plot can't support a sequel? Mmmmm? Yes. that's it... Can't support a sequel! Yes...

      I'd actually love to see this. After the fantastic work on Farscape, I can only imagine what a 2006 production of this magnitude would look like. It would be an awesome site, assuming the story is strong enough to support it...

        Why's Disney doing this? I didn't think they had the rights...

        And isn't this just a rehash of the original?

        What's next? Labyrinth 2, in which David Bowie kidnaps the babe again 20 years later, but finds there's more to worry about that diaper changes when the kid's old enough that he's not smiling about the whole thing?

            It's not Disney that is making this film. It wasn't part of the package sold to them. The Hensons still have this and it is Brian Henson who is making this sequel. Personally, I'm optimistic of what they may come up with, especially visually. At the same time I'm skeptical based on Brian's track record. He's deffinitely not his father. Then again, this is a genre he likes better than the mainstream Muppets so he may surprise us.

              I would go see it. I really liked the first one. I hope it turns out well.

                Well, probably shouldn't base it on such a vague plot outline... I agree it should be an improvement over the last visually. I liked the first, but the pacing was a bit *too* slow. Hopefully that's one thing that'll be better.

                I'm looking more forward to the Fraggle Rock movie.

                    SQUEE! I will put my doubts aside and see it anyway. I loved the first one.

                      I so want to see this film! I love the Dark Crystal original. I would hope they don't back out or have any problems producing it. I hope that my Kids (someday) will be able to experience this.

                        With Brian Henson still in control of the Creature Shop, anything is possible. I'm still dying to see the stuff they did in the 80's that only aired like on the BBC.

                          I've joined this forum just to say THANK YOU to Barbossa for posting that thread, which I tracked down on google.

                          Dark Crystal is one of the few MAJOR influences upon my life and the idea of a Henson family sequel is the most exciting news I've ever heard from the internet, even though it won't be nearly as good as the original and we'll all probably be sick when we watch it.

                          Now I'm going to read some of the other threads here, find out who you lot are and perhaps even introduce myself formally.

                            No problem CeltAnkh. I read on the internet that the movie is supposed to be a mix of live action and CGI. I wish they could stay with just the live action.
