Brian and Wendy Froud Promise Dark Crystal Sequel Is Still Coming, Comic Book Spin-Offs Also Due This Summer

The long, long wait for a sequel to The Dark Crystal has left me feeling doubtful about whether or not we’ll ever get to see the film at all. Consider me heartened, then, to report that Brian and Wendy Froud seem quite certain the film is on the way.
The Frouds are the designers of the sets, props and various puppet creatures that inhabit the world of The Dark Crystal, as well as the other Henson fantasy-world seen in Labyrinth. Interviewed this weekend at a signing of their new fortune-telling card set, The Heart of Faerie Oracle, they revealed that the next Dark Crystal movie is very much still on, that they have done “some designs” for it, have been “talking to the director” and have “been involved with the script”. All good, I believe. These guys are any future film’s strongest link to the first, and it can only help to have them intimately involved.
After the break: the full video of the interview, and details of upcoming Dark Crystal and Labyrinth comic books.
