Lights come on for Crystal
Good news to report, it seems that Henson Company has put not The Power of the Dark Crystal on hiatus after all.
According to Muppet Central the film's production is moving along as planned. The project is not "canceled", "on hiatus", "delayed" or " abandoned". Production is on track and the film is still planned for a "Spring 2008" release. Nicole Goldman, The Jim Henson Company's Head of Publicity reassures us that the film is still alive and moving along as intended. The goal is to finish post-production by the end of the year, so we should see the physical production gearing up real soon. The film should be ready for its debut at Cannes in May 2008.
In another NEWS FLASH! The Muppets are trying to return with a new television series. A 10-minute pilot was filmed in December in hopes of a revival of the beloved franchise.
