Synopsis

In this immersive and fantastical adventure from the creators of the Muppets, a mystical planet has fallen under the barbaric rule of the evil Skeksis. These vulture-like beasts have all but exterminated the peaceful Gelfling and, in a bid to save his species, Gelfling Jen embarks on a perilous journey to find the missing shard of an all-powerful dark crystal. Featuring enjoyable parallels to the escapades of J.R.R Tolkein's hobbits, this is a film steeped in dark, dreamlike landscapes and stunningly elevated by big-budget animatronics.
