THE DARK CRYSTAL (1982)
SUNDAY MARCH 17, 2019 – 2:45PM
In celebration of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance coming soon to TV, check out Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s original masterpiece on the big screen. Jen, the last Gelfling survivor of his race, is set on a hero’s quest by the Mystics. Jen must find a shard of a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe, and wrest it from the evil Skeksis. Warning: brilliant puppetry that some viewers may find terrifying.
“What Jim wanted to do…was to get back to the darkness of the original Grimm’s fairy tales. It was fine to scare children. He didn’t think it was healthy for children to always feel safe.” –Frank Oz, on Henson’s vision for The Dark Crystal
