How many treatments, outlines, and scripts do you think Jim Henson went through before filming The Dark Crystal? The answer: A whole box full.
Back in episode 4 of Unboxing!, we got a rare peek at Jim’s handwritten notes that eventually became The Dark Crystal, and now we’re looking at the next step with every variation of the film’s scripts and screenplays.
As you’ll see, there are some fascinating tidbits from the movie’s development that really makes us think about what could have been. Our only regret is that we didn’t have the time to pore through them. But I get it – we’d probably somehow end up getting pizza grease all over Jim’s handwriting.
Enjoy episode #7, gang!
