In 1955 Jim Henson was put on the map with “The Muppets” and over 30 years later he presented to the public another great masterpiece, “Labyrinth”. âLabyrinthâ debuted in 1986 and was produced by âStar Warsâ George Lucas. The film follows a 16-year-old girl named Sarah Williams, who has been played by Jennifer Connelly in one of her most iconic roles to date.
In the story, Sarah must save her baby half-brother Toby, whom she accidentally wished to leave and was taken away by Jareth the Goblin King, played by music legend David Bowie. Sarah then travels on a magical quest through an otherworldly maze, where she meets a host of quirky characters played by puppets created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
This was the second time that Henson had collaborated with designer and illustrator Brian Froud, with whom he had previously worked on “The Dark Crystal” in 1982. At the film’s premiere, it went badly in theaters and was the Henson’s last film before his death in 1990. However, âLabyrinthâ has since grown into an internationally renowned cult classic and continues to be celebrated by fans around the world.
