Best Adventure Movies of 1982 : The Dark Crystal (Restored Early Version)

The Dark Crystal (Restored Early Version)

0.0/10 IMDB

The Dark Crystal is a 1982 American-British fantasy-adventure film famous for its use of puppets and puppets alone, without any characters played onscreen by human actors. When the film was originally finished, the studio ran test audiences to gather in reactions. Due to most of the audience being families with small children (alienated by the film's content), those test audience reviews were negative. Against Jim Henson's wishes, approximately 20 minutes of film were cut, and re-written dialogue and monologues added to make the film more clear to a broader audience. This is a fan recreation of Jim Henson's original film, using as many high quality sources as possible.
