Editor's NoteFeaturing fantastical puppet flora and fauna from Muppet man Jim Henson, this dark but wonderful children's movie follows Jen and Kira, two young Gelflings who are the last of their kind, as they try to fulfill the prophecy of the Dark Crystal. Jen's wise master reveals on his deathbed that only a Gelfling will mend the crystal that cracked 1,000 years ago and placed the land under the dark rule of the evil, selfish Skeksis. To break the prophecy, the Skeksis killed all the Gelflings, and only Jen and Kira escaped their wrath. Now, though, Jen and Kira must journey into the heart of the Skeksis castle to reach the crystal and return the land to its former goodness.Like all good children's movies, THE DARK CRYSTAL contains enough scary elements to keep the tension tight and the kids enthralled, while the puppet mastery will impress and tickle adults. THE DARK CRYSTAL was the first co-directorial effort of Frank Oz, who went on to direct THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, IN & OUT, and BOWFINGER, among many other comedies.

Customer Reviews of Dark Crystal
Great fantasy movie3/23/2013
Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal" is a meticulously crafted fantasy movie featuring Jim's famous puppet characters. The story is simple, yet intriguing - the battle of good versus evil in an ancient world of elf-like creatures. It worth to see, if only for the amazing production of this fantasy world. This reaches far beyond the Muppets' enactment, every detail is carefully staged. In my opinion a masterpiece. May be a bit scary for kids under 5 or 6.
A great clasic12/27/1999
I loved the muppetiering in this movie when I was a wee laddy, now I enjoy the origional plot as an old fart (probably due to nostalgia). It's got all the comedy, drama and special effects of todays blockbusters only with puppets. This is a GREAT family movie.
