Muppets creator Jim Henson and co-director Frank Oz, inspired by a Lewis Carroll poem, broke new ground with this imaginative, sinister and exhilarating fantasy adventure unlike any other.

The Dark Crystal is a miraculous rush of innovation and storytelling … a bona-fide classic that’s timeless in stature and masterful in execution.” – Brian Orndorf, DVD Talk

In another world and another time, The Dark Crystal – a source of Balance and Truth in the Universe – was shattered, dividing the world into two factions: the wicked Skeksis and the peaceful Mystics. Now, as the convergence of the three suns approaches, the Crystal must be healed, or darkness will reign forevermore! It’s up to Jen – the last of his race – to fulfill the prophecy that a Gelfling will return the missing shard to the Crystal and destroy the Skeksis’ evil Empire. But will young Jen’s courage be any match for the unknown dangers that await him? Jim Henson’s creative team let their imaginations run wild in this timeless tale of good vs. evil, using then-state-of-the-art technology to create a jaw-dropping alchemy of puppetry, electronics and animation on a scale never before attempted.  A masterful fantasy epic filled with thrills, chills and pure imagination, The Dark Crystal is a genuine cult classic for all ages. (Dir. by Jim Henson & Frank Oz, 1982, USA/UK, 93 mins., Rated PG)
