I got to this site by accident when searching for something else, but I am glad I did! The Dark Crystal is one of my all time favorite movies!!! I watched it, and then when my children were old enough, I made them watch it. It will always be one of Jim's bests! I will definately watch this movie, and then own it when it becomes avaliable. Thanks for continuing this production. IT'S GONNA BE AWSOME!!!!!!!!!

I heard rumors that Brian Froud hasn't been invited to the US for production. Anyone know if this is true?

I need more information!! Has production actually started yet? I heard rumors before that filming would start in 06 and movie would be out sometime in 07.

Must know more!!!

I'm really looking forward to seeing this. I found out about this production after checking on the Wikipedia Dark Crystal entry, and I remember watching the original in the theater lo those many years ago.

The Dark Crystal was a little treasure of a movie and I'm hoping that the new one will be as odd, unique and magical as the first. And with the new world of DVD extras, be sure to document this like crazy, there's no such thing as too much information when it comes to a movie like this.

Looking forward to this greatly.
I hope puppets are used to a great degree.
Animatronics and puppetry augmented with CGI would look great!
I trust the screenplay will have that Henson muppet flair as well.
