The Dark Crystal
We've been getting requests for this one ever since we covered Labyrinth five years ago. As you're about to discover, there's a pretty surprising reason it took this long. Nevertheless, the time has come to do a deep dive on one of Jim Henson's proudest (and most polarizing) achievements.
Topics include: why it was so important to conceptualize this world before developing the story, how a metaphysical being named Seth influenced the film's themes, what makes the dark crystal "dark", the numerous changes they made for the theatrical cut after a disastrous test screening, all the ways in which the lore has been expanded upon in other media, and much more!
