The Dark Crystal 2

Ooooh, this just in... I can't believe it but they're making a sequel to The Dark Crystal. People tend to forget this but the 1980s was a glorious age for (often quite dark) fantasy: Conan, Excaliber, Krull, Neverending Story, Legend, Return to Oz, Ladyhawke, Labyrinth, and The Dark Crystal. I think I saw Dark Crystal when I was 4 or so, and I was captivated by the imagery, especially the old crone with an eye in her forehead.

Now there's a sequel coming from the brains behind Samurai Jack and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, probably 2 of the most brilliant, artistically stunning cartoon series of recent years. I'm very excited...

Extracted from an Aint It Cool News on the San Diego Comic Con:

Jim Henson Company panel

- Power of the dark crystal directed by Genndy Tartakofsky.(creator of Dexter’s Lab, Samurai Jack, Star Wars:Clone war cartoons.) When asked to direct he had two questions. Is it going to be with puppets. And will Brian Froud be involved. When both were answered yes, he signed on.
- Frank Oz has an open invitation to be apart of the production. GT would love to work with him especially as a puppeteer.
- The sequel will take place beneath the world of the first one.
