Samurai Jack: The Clone Wars: The Dark Crystal

The Dark Crystal Sequel Planned

from Dark Horizons

The Jim Henson Co. has set animated series creator Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack, Star Wars: The Clones Wars) to direct Power of the Dark Crystal, sequel to 1982 fantasy film The Dark Crystal reports Variety.

Tartakovsky's Orphanage Animation Studios will take the lead on the CG animation elements for the puppet-driven film. Brian Froud has returned to design the new characters.

Set hundreds of years after the first pic, sequel follows a mysterious girl made of fire who steals a shard of the crystal in hopes of reigniting the dying sun.Annette Duffy and David Odell penned the script.

The puppets this time around will operate amid a CGI backdrop. Henson will secure a domestic distributor by the time the film begins production in late summer.

This sounds kind of terrible, but I guess it can't be as bad as Gonzo From Outer Space or whatever the hell the last Muppet movie was. If you ask me, they should start making Fraggle movies or come up with something new.

By the way, I am trying to get a job at Adult Swim. I have started a grass roots campaign.

Can you endorse me?

Thank you,

Charles McCarthy

How dare you blaspheme Dark Crystal! It's one of my favorite movies! Comparing it to...to Fra-FRAGGLE FUCKING ROCK?!?!

If you were here right now, you'd so have a fork in your eye.
