What DO YOU want to see in the new Dark Crystal Movie??

    I'd like to add this bit....

    Special Effect Work...

    I'm apprehensive that some of this film will end up looking like the cheaply made effects from the Sci-Fi Channel's Dune series. They followed the story well enough but the production values were poor and ultimately, they produced a film that was, at times, laughable, not because of the plot, but because of the effects.

    Mirror Mask is my case-in-point. It was interesting, but low in production value and because of that, I lost interest VERY quickly. I'd hate for The Power of the Dark Crystal to suffer the same fate.

    There have been a few images from the movie released over the past year... not sure when that one surfaced, but I've been seeing it on the PDC Muppet Wiki page for a few months now, I think. It's the press release photo with Jen and Kira.

    No that's another photo on WIKI.
    Maybe JMPrater has more inside information he doesn't want to share?

    That image was shown on the comic-con presentation on youtube.

    Ok, you're right, but the one on youtube is distorted and has text in it.

    I wish Henson/Genndy would actually release more imagery, this is monotonous.

    Just a question, does anyone know whether or not the original voice actors will reprise their roles? On IMDb about two years ago, they were listed as doing so. Of course, Brian Henson was also listed as the director then.

    There should be a big "POSSIBLE SPOILER" warning on this thread.

    For serious.

    If you know what's gonna happen in this movie, I don't wanna know beforehand. I like being surprised and coming to my conclusions.

    (or maybe I'm just jealous that someone has the actual first draft of the script and I don't ;))

    I feel like it's time to see some tid bits from this new sequel. It's been a while since anything has been released officially.

    How bout it Henson?

    I just hope it's not done with too much CG effects. Not that I have anything against computer effects in general, but I would just like to see it match up with the original as far as the overall look and feel of the film. I still remember how excited I was to see the first film when I saw the movie poster as a kid. I am pretty excited about the sequel as well. I also hope it's not too similar to mirrormask. I liked the movie, but the effects weren't really my cup of tea. I much prefer puppets and live effects, rather than the computer stuff. I know the budget is a big issue, but they might as well do it right if they are going to do it.

    This isn't news, but here is an article with a link to Froud's conceptual drawings: http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1542247/10032006/story.jhtml

    you need to scroll down in the article to where it says: "Click here to see Brian Froud's conceptual drawings..." and make sure you have disabled your popup blocker. Also, be patient when loading each pic.
