I'm curious if anyone else is interested in The Dark Crystal prequel series that Netflix is currently working on with the Jim Hensen studio? As a child I absolutlely loved that movie. Between Jim Hensen's amazing Puppets and the artistic work of Brian and Wendy Froud it was just the right mix of dark/creepy and fantasy. Somewhere I even think there is a video of me dressed up in one of my fairy costumes when I was a little girl standing infront of our old Tube television watching the VHS forwards and then hitting rewind immediately when it ended and watching it backwards. Rinse and repeat for hours on the weekend. granted I was about 4 so forgive me the damage to the tape itself.

I'm cautiously excited. I'm so pleased Brian Froud is involved, but since there's been no actual footage put out, I'm reserving my squee.

One of my friends shared something on FB about that thing. Didn't they show some of the sketches and artwork for the new on it is or was that part of the old one? I haven't actually seen that movie but it would be cool to. Its kinda old isn't it like in the 80's?

You can see the trailer that has been released https://youtu.be/OGzVYyV_Jsg. It's a bunch of sketches and shots of the puppet build. Which is really cool! I love it. But there only a split second of actual show footage, so no sense of how the story or writing will be. If nothing else, I am confident it will look fantastic!
