    Fantastic – though admittedly I was too scared as a child to sit through the whole of The Dark Crystal, I still loved it (the bits I watched that is.) I would love to see a sequel.
    My personal fav Henson show is still the Storyteller series – would love to see a reprise of that.

    If they make a Labyrinth part 2 I do hope somehow David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly and Toby Froud would have at least an appearance for it. I think that Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails would be a good goblin prince or king. :) I also hope that The Dark Crystal 2 isn’t crappy animation and it still puppetry.
