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.
Jim Henson's original name for Aughra was 'Habeetabat'. Although he and screenwriter David Odell were fond of this name, Brian Froud was not. Froud's first concept sketches made the character into an ogre like character, so for a while she was renamed 'Ogra' before finally settling on 'Aughra'.
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,...
When Aughra squats down and tells Jen "There is much to be learned and you have no time." As she says that there is a piece of hair in her mouth, as she says the line it falls out, but when they cut back to her the hair is back in her mouth.
