    Another world, another time... in the Age of Wonder
    Certificate: PG
    Running Time: 89 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    The Dark Crystal is a remarkable fantasy adventure, starring some of Jim Henson`s most imaginative creatures ever.

    Five years in the making, this magical tale of good and evil is directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz and produced by Gary Kurtz (Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back). You can also discover some of the secrets behind the making of the first ever all-puppet film in a special 60 minute featurette!

    In another time, The Dark Crystal, a source of balance and truth in the universe, was shattered dividing the world into two factions: the wicked Skeksis and the peaceful Mystics. Now, as the convergence of the three suns approaches, the Crystal must be healed, or darkness will reign forever!

    It`s up to Jen, the last of his race, to fulfil the prophecy that a Gelfling will return the missing shard of the Crystal and destroy the Skeksis` evil empire. But will young Jen`s courage be any match for the unknown dangers that await him?
