Dark Crystal Gets A Sequel - 28 Years Later!

| Filed under: Film Flickers

darkcrystal.jpg

These days, if it's not a remake, it's an unnecessary sequel!

The latest to get a long-awaited follow up is the '80s Jim Henson extravaganza Dark Crystal!

Peter and Michael Spierig, the team behind Daybreakers, will be directing the new flick, called The Power of the Dark Crystal, and apparently will also be employing the same puppetry used in the original - on top of some modern day CGI, of course!

And WTF is the plot supposed to be, exactly?

According to reports:

Set hundreds of years after the events of the first movie when the world has once again fallen into darkness, Power of the Dark Crystal follows the adventures of a mysterious girl made of fire who, together with a Gelfling outcast, steals a shard of the legendary Crystal in an attempt to reignite the dying sun that exists at the center of the planet.

We'll remain cautiously optimistic on this one, but we're sure it's not going to hold a candle to the new Tron!

Too bad! We LOVE the original Dark Crystal!

Thoughts??

    I couldn't stand The Dark Crystal the first time around, there is no way in hell I will even attempt to watch this. Besides, sequels are almost always worse than originals.

    Back in Grade 5 - 1983, VCR's were all the rage - our teacher made theclass choose, over recess, which movie we were going to watch - this Muppet future homo douchbaggery or Wrath of Khan
    -
    lo, it was a dark day for the girls and future homos that recess - verily 15 minutes of spring day in the quartered playground of St. Gerard Elementary School felt as a lifetime in Hell

    How fucking stupid. Waste of time, energy, space & money.



  28. 28

    Oh please. This news is so old. This has been out for like over a yr. Anyone that goes on movie news sites has read this.



  29. 29

    the dark crystal was the shit.



  30. 30

    Oh god they're going to use CGI on it too? The first one did an excellent job without all of that. Ugh… I bet it'll be in 3D also.

    My friend recommended me an interesting place #$***ric h ki ss Co m ****, where wealthy hot singles looking for someone to enjoy their wealthy lifestyle with. They discuss women, men, dating, life, sports, movies etc.

  34. 34

    fuckin fail

    dark crystals and those weird muppets rocked



  35. 35

    Never heard of it. Maybe I saw it when I was little and never knew the title.



  36. 36

    WoW I thought the original was a horrible excuse for a movie! Maybe its because I didn't see it until I was an adult…

    ARE YOU F'ING SERIOUS??!! Tron sucked the first time, will suck even worse the second time, and will never even be in the same league as the groundbreaking classic that is "The Dark Crystal". I can't wait for the new movie, it's been waaaaay to long in coming. Since the tragic death of Jim Hensen, it seems that his studio has been serious lacking in creating new projects like this that Jim would certainly have done many more of by now. I really can't wait, I hope it does it's legendary creator justice.
