“The Dark Crystal” is a fantasy adventure created and co-directed by “The Muppet Show” creator JIM HENSON. A magical crystal cracks and fragments, resulting in two new species: one good and one bad. The bad race uses the power of the “Dark Crystal” to continually replenish themselves.

Henson said that he based the film on his short story¬†“The Crystal”, although some of the film’s philosophical themes, he said, were taken from a New Age cornerstone: “The Seth Material”, a collection of influential messages psychically channelled¬† by JANE ROBERTS¬† from 1963-1984.

Henson also directed and co-wrote the fantasy film “Labyrinth”, also full of occult symbolism, and executive produced by “Star Wars” creator GEORGE LUCAS.
