A magnificent puppet animation from the Muppets creator, Jim Henson. The tale begins when Jen is told of a prophecy by his master - a wise and gentle mystic. Jen sets to the task of returning the crystal shard to the all powerful Dark Crystal, making it whole again, and restoring light to the world. For the first time ever, here is a totally live action film inhabited only by creatures - set in another world, another time - in the age of wonder. Rated: G
