Henson Company Plans to Look Into "The Dark Crystal" Again

by | May 16, 2005 | Comments

Brian and Lisa Henson, children of the legendary Jim Henson and head honchos at the production company that bears his name, recently announced plans for "The Power of the Dark Crystal," which of course will be a sequel to the 1982 fantasy film "The Dark Crystal."

Screenwriter David Odell, who penned the original film as well as the first "Muppet Movie," is on board for the second spin, although a director has yet to be announced. (The original "Crystal" was co-directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz.) According to Variety, the sequel "is set many years after the first film. Original heroes Jen and Kira are now king and queen, and must fight to save their kingdom when the crystal is once again split." Production on "The Power of the Dark Crystal" is set to begin later this year, with a release date scheduled for early 2007.
