Another world, another time… in the age of Wonder. From genius filmmaker Jim Henson comes The Dark Crystal, a masterful live-action fantasy starring some of the most imaginative creatures ever put on film. Many years ago, the mysterious Crystal was cracked and an age of chaos began, led by the evil race of Skeksis who rule over the land of Thra. Meanwhile, raised in solitude by a gentle race of creatures called the Mystics, the Gelfling orphan Jen, is sent on a quest to find the missing shard that will heal the Dark Crystal and restore balance to the universe.

The special anniversary event will feature a brand-new introduction with Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company, on the making of this groundbreaking film and its dedicated fandom, as well as the legacy of her father, Jim Henson.

Meet the Characters

Meet the Characters

Kira

Kira

Kira

Kira, a young female Gelfling with long fair hair and gossamer wings, is one of only two surviving Gelfling following the Garthim War. When fate brings Kira and Jen together, she joins him on his quest to take the True Shard to the Castle before the Great Conjunction. 

Jen

Jen

Jen

A young male Gelfling, our hero Jen believes he is the last survivor of his race. Raised by the peaceful Mystics, Jen is sent on a quest by his master urSu to heal the Dark Crystal.
The Mystics

The Mystics

The Mystics

The urRu, the peaceful counterparts to the evil Skeksis, came into existence when the light of the Crystal of Truth shined upon the urSkeks during the Second Great Conjunction and divided the urSkeks into two beings.  The urRu, dubbed the “Mystics” by the Gelfling, are creative and healing creatures.

Fizzgig

Fizzgig

Fizzgig

A “friendly monster” and the loyal sidekick and pet-like companion of Kira, Fizzgig has sharp teeth, and an intimidating growl. He joins Jen and Kira on their journey to the castle and is a great addition in the battle to bring natural order back to Thra. 

Skeksis

Skeksis

Skeksis

During the Great Conjunction, the urSkeks stepped into the light of the suns that filtered through the Crystal and refracted through the urSkeks’ mirrors. Unintentionally, the urSkeks were split into two creatures: the peaceful urRu and the Skeksis, reptilian and bird-like creatures with long necks, who over time have become the evil despots of Thra.
Aughra

Aughra

Aughra

Old enough to know the world that existed before the race of the Gelfling came to be, Aughra is the embodiment of Thra.  Wizened, inscrutable, and gruff, with one working detachable eye and two blind eyes, she helps Jen on his quest to find the True Shard.
