Jim Henson’s Original Vision of THE DARK CRYSTAL


Did you know that The Dark Crystal that creeped you out as a kid isn’t as creepy as it was supposed to be? Fan Christopher Orgeron has spent two years remastering the initial cut of Jim Henson’s fantasy film, which includes less voiceover and dialog, all of which apparently tended to confuse test audiences. While Orgeron doesn’t think this is necessarily the ultimate version that Henson would have released to theaters, it is an interesting peek at how movies change from their first cuts.
