This is original quote from Neil Gaiman's blog regarding a viewing that he and Dave Mckean saw in the Henson family house while they worked on the new film. They saw an original three hour version of Labyrinth which inspired Mirrormask!: It's a story about a teenage girl on a strange quest through a magical world. It's not a sequel to Labyrinth, or even an indirect sequel. It's more something that came out of talking about how you'd do something like that today. But Labyrinth was all around while we created it -- not only in the ancient puppets, and original Brian Froud Labyrinth concept paintings hanging on the walls. Poking around in a closet of videos, I found a working print of Labyrinth, when it was three hours long, had puppeteer voices instead of actor voices, and lots of genuinely funny Sir Didimus stuff that never made it into the final film (voiced by Dave Goelz -- voice of the Great Gonzo), and Dave and I played it over several evenings, curious and fascinated." Now what can they have produced in that further hour and a half????!!!! This is news to me anyway and well is just a wee bit teasing to say the least! We need extras! By the bucket load! Who's with me? And I think all you muppet fans would have loved to have heard the puppeter voices to the characters.
