The Dark Crystal

Jim Henson and Frank Oz Discuss The Dark Crystal (1982)

Thanks to this Entertainment Tonight Flashback segment we can watch this 1982 interview with both Jim Henson and Frank Oz as they discuss the amount of craftsmanship that went into the creation of the world of the Dark Crystal and its inhabitants.

Even though I watched Entertainment Tonight every night during dinner this was actually the first time to see this clip, I thought it was really interesting how even from the first Henson decided their wouldn’t be a film sequel with the characters from the original film.
