From the mind that brought us Labyrinth and The Muppet Movie, comes the fan favorite — Dark Crystal, a high fantasy adventure film. Jen (Stephen Garlick), raised by the noble race called the Mystics, has been told that he is the last survivor of his own race, the Gelflings. He sets out to try to find a shard of the dark crystal, a powerful gem that once provided balance to the universe. After the crystal was broken, the evil Skeksis used sinister means to gain control. Jen believes that he can repair the dark crystal and bring peace back to the world if he can only find the remaining shard.
