Jim Henson's Studio Readies The Dark Crystal Sequel For Pre-Production

Great flying Gelflings — the Henson studio hasn't decided to abandon the Dark Crystal sequel. In fact, it's moving forward. Just in case you've run out of things to watch while getting high.

In an interview with MTV, the son of muppet god Jim Henson, Brian Henson, gave a little update on the next movie in the series about muppets that will make you secretly terrified.

The sequel to Frank Oz and Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal will be called The Power of the Dark Crystal:

We have a 'Dark Crystal' sequel, called 'The Power of the Dark Crystal.' It has a very strong script... Both of those projects... are very close to going into pre-production. They're both really ready to go. [The studio is] just [in the process of] putting together the final finance pieces and the final distribution pieces.

It's all happening! I have the patience of a five-year-old when it comes to muppet movies, as there is a dire need for some good old fashioned puppetry in today's cinema. Hopefully the urRu pace at which the Dark Crystal 2 seems to be plodding along may indicate an intent from Henson studios to do DC2 right, this time lets really scare the kiddies, with puppets!
