Dark Crystal Sequel!! Genndy Tartakovsky!

Ever heard of Samurai Jack? Dexter’s Lab? Clone Wars (animated)? Well now you will have The Power of the Dark Crystal!! Amazing!

Not only is someone bringing back a GOOD franchise (not remaking, but continuing), they are getting talented people to work on it! Brian Froud is back. Genndy is the man, and the Orphanage will do animation.

The sequel is only one of several projects exploring the world of The Dark Crystal, a fan favorite that has remained consistently strong with worldwide home video and DVD sales. Other projects include an animated television series, a manga series from Tokyo Pop, and myriad licensed products such as books, apparel and collectible sculptures.

The only other thing I can say is ROCK ON! I mean, Mirror Mask was absolutely the best. Really fantastic, and who knew that college students did all the animation? It was visually stunning (as I’m sure another Brian Froud film will be), and executed beautifully. But most importantly, it embodied the spirit of the Jim Henson Company more than 100 Muppet Wizard of Oz TV shows could. I am overjoyed that they made Mirror Mask, and spectacularly exuberant that the next big deal will be based on the best intellectual property… ever! Yay!
