Spierig Bros. Talk ‘The Power of the Dark Crystal’


“We had been talking to Henson for quite a while and went in talking about different projects,” said Peter of their initial conversations. “They showed us some concept material for ‘Dark Crystal’ and we absolutely flipped for it. It’s been such a big part of our childhood. They basically asked us if we were interested and we were like, are you kidding? It’s going to be our lives for a few years, maybe longer.”

“We wouldn’t attach ourselves to the material if it didn’t connect to our sensibilities,” Michael affirms. “To be honest, the first film is, when I was young, pretty scary stuff. This will certainly have scary elements to it. It’s not a horror film by any means, its just got a really solid mythology and solid idea. There are so many great characters. Great new characters and some of the favorites from the previous film will return. It’s not a remake. It’s a continuing story and we use the world of the first film to go further.”

Set hundreds of years after the events of the first movie when the world has yet again fallen into darkness, The Power of the Dark Crystal follows the adventures of a mysterious girl made of fire ho, together with a Gelfling outcast, steals a shard of the legendary Crystal in an attempt to reignite the dying sun that exists at the center of the planet.

The film will be released in 3D.

  1. I loved Undead but thought their latest vampire-flick thing was absolute drivel -can’t even remember the name it was that shithouse. Hope this one is better.
    Also wonder if the costume/ cgi people are the ones that did Where The Wild Things Are..?
