Dark Crystal Prophecy Did Not Say Anything About Sequel

If you want more Dark Crystal, raise your hand! Unless it's already up a Muppet's ass.

Dark Crystal, the 1982 Jim Henson all-Muppet fantasy movie, is set for a sequel, Variety announced. Genndy Tartakovsky, creator of Samurai Jack and director of Star Wars: Clone Wars will handle the computer stuff, and the Hensonian geniuses will take care of the puppet action.

Legend has it that the movie was promoted as the first live-action flick with no human actors. This was before Jackass: The Movie.

Henson's folk are the architects of the lamented Farscape, which was itself a masterwork in hand up the ass technology.

All I want to know is, can we get some other Muppets in there, just because they can? How about put Rygel in there somewhere? Or maybe a Gamorrean Guard? How about Snuffleupagus? That mammoth son of a bitch can sing the hell out of "On Top of Spaghetti."

Power of the Dark Crystal is about a girl made of fire who steals a crystal shard to reignite the sun. Or it's about heroes Jen and Kira years later. Or both. Or neither. The Internet reports both stories.

For sure, though, this movie is not Labyrinth, in case you, like me, once confused the two. That was the one with David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly, one of whom made me think certain thoughts when I was a 12-year-old young man.

News editor Joe Crowe is the end of the world! Or the beginning.
