On another planet in the distant past, a Gelfling embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of a magical crystal, and so restore order to his world.
It was Frank Oz's Idea for Kira to have a pet, Fizzgig, similar to Miss Piggy's little dog Foo Foo, who at that time had recently been added to The Muppet Show (1976). Jim Henson only reluctantly agreed because he did not like repeating himself.
Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green and good - until the Crystal cracked. For a single piece was lost; a shard of the Crystal. Then strife began, and two new races appeared: the cruel Skeksis,...
The Gelfling puppets have three fingers and one thumb on each hand. When Kira and Jen make their way into the castle via a mouth-like entrance, Kira's right hand has five fingers in the long shot (actors, not puppets, were used for long shots of the Gelflings).
