The Dark Crystal is a dramatic puppet-populated fantasy adventure film created by Jim Henson, without any humans present, set on a world dominated by hateful, selfish reptilian beings known as Skeksis that drain others of their life-force so they can continue their decadent and evil ways indefinitely. Only good, elf-like creatures called Gelflings can break their dominion and save their dying and tormented world! A great family classic with dark elements, The Dark Crystal provides lessons in courage, hope, perseverance and working together toward a good cause! Root for Jen and Kira as they strive to win the day.Erik M.
Visible crew/equipment: During the landstrider sequence, before they reach the Crystal castle, you can just make out in one shot, the safety wire attached to the performer as he runs. (DVD extras says the landstrider performers had these wires all the time but this is the only time you see them).
[Jen and Kira are riding Landstriders.]
Jen: The prophecy never said anything about this.
Kira: Prophets don't know everything.
Question: When Jen looks at the shard, he sees in image of a Skeksis striking the crystal, but why when the beings of light appear, do they say that they were the ones responsible for shattering it?
