Good versus evil is a lesson best taught to the young. That certainly must have been the impetus behind this piece of childhood nightmare fuel from the prolific duo of Jim Henson and Frank Oz. Scary muppets! Big sounds! A total vision. In a mythical kingdom, outside space and time, a shattered crystal brings forth a thousand-year-long war between dark and light forces, but Jen and Kira, a pair of innocent creatures, may hold the answer to restoring the crystal and bringing peace to the land. A groundbreaking feat of special effects and visual storytelling, unexpectedly dark, from the pair that brought us Kermit the frog. Screening in a 4K Restoration!
