About
The
Dark Crystal

Theworld of The Dark Crystal
began with Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 movie, which he co-directed with
Frank Oz. Jim Henson had been, until that time, known primarily as the genius
behind the Muppets, and this fantasy adventure feature, the first to have an
all-puppet cast, marked a turn to more realistic characters and
creatures.

 

From
inception to release,
The Dark Crystal
was seven years in the making and has since gone on to become a cult classic
around the world. Visually conceived by Creature and Costume Designer Brian
Froud, Thra, the setting for this epic story, is teeming with characters brought
to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, including Gelfling heroes, villainous
Skeksis, wise Mystics, and a host of original creatures. Jim Henson’s unique
vision was – in his own words – the hardest thing he ever worked on, describing
it as “a work of art” and “the one that I’m most proud of.”

 

The visually stunning movie launched a huge range of publishing and collectible
merchandise. Two series of graphic novels and a series of young adult novels
combined to expand the Dark Crystal world, introducing origin stories, sequel
storylines, and a broad canvas to tell a prequel story of the matriarchal
Gelfling culture in a time when the world of Thra was younger and more vibrant.
A new generation will soon be able to experience the wonder of this world, when
TheDark Crystal: Age of Resistance
comes to Netflix globally.

 

The Dark Crystal,
a truly classic movie, introduced a rich, vibrant, hand-crafted world, on which
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
will only expand, continuing Jim Henson’s innovative and creative legacy.
Audiences will once again be thrilled to explore the world of Thra in this epic
fantasy that everyone will be talking about.
