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.
In May 2017, it was announced that Netflix is producing a prequel television series to this movie titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (2019), and that the prequel series will take place on Thra several hundred years before Jen embarked on his quest to find the missing crystal shard to The Dark Crystal. The prequel series premiered on August 30, 2019.
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).
The opening credits show only the credits for the crew.
In the 1994 VHS release, the first five minutes (up to the end of the credits) and the closing credits were in widescreen. Beautiful Celtic-style stone patterns overlapped the top and bottom widescreen bars.
