On August 30th, Netflix will take us back to Thra – the world of The Dark Crystal – for a prequel series that tells the story of how the Gelflings learned of the Skeksis evil thanks to the bravery of a young Gelfling named Rian (voiced by Taron Egerton)
In this new featurette, the cast and creators discuss the series.
BOOM! Studios has announced a sequel to Jim Henson’s film, Labyrinth.
Written by S.M. Vidaurri and with art by artist Sarah Webb, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Under the Spell reveals the secret history of Sir Didymus and the vow he made to guard the bridge over the Bog of Eternal Stench – just as a start.
Released under BOOM! Studios’ Archaia imprint, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: Under the Spell will be in comics shops on November 28th.
Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal has become an enduring classic – the film that established that Henson could do much more than just Muppets. Between an epic quest fantasy story, Brian Froud’s exquisite designs and Henson’s impressive ability to put everything together in a world that felt incredibly real, The Dark Crystal has become a genuinely loved work.
Now, Archaia is re-releasing Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: The Novelization in hardcover. Based on the original script, the novel, by A.C.H. Smith (Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Novelization), expands on the story and includes a cover and interior illustrations by Froud. An unexpected bonus is more than twenty pages of Henson’s detailed notes on an early draft of the film’s script. The book will be in comic shops and specialty shops on June 4th and in bookstores everywhere on June 10th. Follow the jump for the press release and ordering information.
Okay, kiddies… We’ve got all manner of strangeness for you, today. First up is Quentin Tarantino’s fusion of cars & babes flicks with slasher movies, Death Proof – in it’s extended [by which we mean full] version. Then there’s the new repackaging of the first two Resident Evil movies in what they’re calling the Resurrection Edition. Hey! Zombie dogs! Next we’ve got the original 3:10 To Yuma – a much different version than the recent, excellent film – but just as twisted. Finally, Jim Henson’s first full length feature with only puppets, the amazing The Dark Crystal – in this spiffy 25th Anniversary Edition!
