Production Update from Comic-Con

The Jim Henson Company held a special Q&A session at the 2007 ComicCon International convention in San Diego. Brian Henson, Lisa Henson, John Chandler, Halle Stanford, Patrick Bristow and Julianne Buescher were on site to answer questions from the audience. Inevitably some questions about Power of the Dark Crystal came up; here is what Henson had to say:

"We’re working on 'Power of the Dark Crystal' and those are animatronics puppets but with a whole lot of cool compositing techniques and animation enhancement that will be animatronics better then you’ve ever seen them done."
    - Brian Henson

"All of this is cloaked in secrecy...there is something great coming along... Fans of 'The Dark Crystal' did detect that we were moving a little slowly, and it’s kind of true, we had a little setback but are back on track. The movie will not be coming out until 2009 so we’re not going to be showing anything for a while."
    - Lisa Henson

Woo hoo!
Thanks for the update!
No wait.....
When did this info come out?
It's delayed?
But the best animatronics?
Awesome!

Back on track but it won't release until 2009????
I would say that the films ISN'T back on track!

It is back on track. The original plan was to have the film finished for release in 2008, however due to some setbacks (with the business side of things) they weren't able to move forward with production in 2007 as originally planned, so they became a year behind schedule. But now have everything ready to move forward. They are back on track; however the film will just be arriving a year later then originally planned due to the delay.

Holy crap, Lois! I had no idea; the last time they brought up another Dark Crystal movie, they said no chance. Back then I was such a fan, I used to go to the theater every week to see it. At least 28 times, probably more. I'd still like to see a release of the original movie with the original language soundtracks. Can't wait!

That's very exciting. I'm glad to hear it. Wikipedia mentioned that Genndy Tartovsky of Dexter's Lab and Samurai Jack would be involved. I sure hope so as I was very pleased with both the intelligence and the artwork of both.

Would be nice if there was a trailer. Is anything going to be metioned at comic-con this year?

It is certainly interesting for me to read that blog. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our lives, and I am fairly certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory decreases, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.
