Dark Crystal News!

OMG, I am SO excited. The Dark Crystal is coming to Netflix as a new show. It’s a prequel. It’s called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. I think the book I have is a prequel so it might follow that storyline.

I loved this movie so much when I was a kid. Really, anything Jim Henson did was genius, but The Dark Crystal took it to a whole new level. The detail and love that went into that movie is so obvious throughout. In the teaser trailer below, Jim Henson says that he considers it art. I do, too.

As a lot of people were, I was devastated when Jim Henson died, and I hope he’s with this in spirit. I have high hopes that this is going to be awesome.

Toy Collection 3: Christmas/Dark Crystal Edition

Hey-o! Christmas was a good time. I wish I had more time off for the holiday, but that’s the breaks, I guess. I did get some cool stuff for Christmas, including a couple of new additions to the collection.

I’ve loved The Dark Crystal since I was a kid, so I was quite pleased to get these. On the left, we have Ursol the Chanter, and on the right is Aughra! Aughra is the best. She was one of my favorite characters in the movie. Grouchy characters always have the best lines.

I also got the new Dark Crystal book: Shadows of the Dark Crystal # 1. I’ve read a couple of chapters, and I really like it so far.
