THE DARK CRYSTAL.JPGThe Henson Company is back. Their first CG movie Mirror Mask made it's debut at Sundance, they did awesome work on the Vogons in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and this Sunday we have The Muppets Wizard of Oz on ABC. Okay, we'll wait to pass judgement on the last one. So when Variety announced on Friday that a sequel was in the works to the 1982 fantasy classic The Dark Crystal, we should have been happy. Even Aint it cool news fears the worst. The good news is David Odell is back as screenwriter. The bad news is Jim Henson who wrote the story and co-directed the first film is... well... not able to return. And no news on who's in the director's chair, but we have a feeling Frank Oz is sitting this one out.
