We have all heard there is a sequel to The Dark Crystal on the way, and we are all excited about it, but what can we expect? Well, thanks to the folks at the Jim Henson Co. we have just scored our first look at the film in the form of a hi-res image featuring Kira, a star of the original film, is now hundreds of years older and a queen in Power of the Dark Crystal, the sequel from The Jim Henson Company.
The puppet featured in the image was designed by artist Brian Froud and if it is any indication of what we can expect from this film I think we are all in for a treat.
There isn’t an official release date yet or anything like that, but we do know the film is set hundreds of years after the events of the first movie when the world has once again fallen into darkness, Power of the Dark Crystal follows the adventures of a mysterious girl made of fire who, together with a Gelfling outcast, steals a shard of the legendary Crystal in an attempt to reignite the dying sun that exists at the center of the planet.
