The Dark Crystal, a fantasy epic which featured the iconic team of filmmakers Jim Henson and Frank Oz, hits Blu-Ray and digital March 6 via Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The feature, which centers on a young hero in search of a relic that will restore order to the universe, has continued to grow in acclaim since its 1982 release.
The Blu-ray edition, which has been fully restored in 4K from the original camera negative, contains a 24-page Digibook containing rare photos and behind-the-scenes stories. The new featurette “The Myth, Magic and Henson Legacy” takes a deeper look at the film with additional interviews from producer Lisa Henson (Jim’s daughter) and Toby Froud (his father Brian Froud was the conceptual designer of The Dark Crystal). Also included in the collection are deleted scenes, a picture-in-picture storyboard track, photo galleries, and commentary with Brian Froud.
