Brian Henson Updates Details On 'Fraggle Rock' And 'The Dark Crystal' Sequel

Speaking with MTV Brian Henson gave up some details on the purposed 'Fraggle Rock' And 'The Dark Crystal' sequel seeing has its been a long wait to hear any information on them. Thankfully he said that they are still in development and nearing pre-production telling MTV:
"Fraggle Rock" is "still in very active development. Very active development. That has a very strong script." Woosh. See that emphasis on the second 'very'? That's all Henson baby. He was emphatic in his "Fraggle" talk. And that's not all!

"It'll have a strong musical component," he said. "It'll be expanded to an older audience. 'Fraggle Rock' [the TV show] was presented... for a pretty exclusively children's audience. The feature film does expand it to be more accessible to a wider audience."

"We have a 'Dark Crystal' sequel, called 'The Power of the Dark Crystal.' It has a very strong script." More emphasis. I like that, Mr. Henson. Enthusiasm. It's infectious. I'm already excited about these projects, and hearing your comments only amplifies that.

"Both of those projects... are very close to going into pre-production," Henson said. "They're both really ready to go. [The studio is] just [in the process of] putting together the final finance pieces and the final distribution pieces."
As of yet there's no mention if Genndy Tartakovsky is still int he directors chair for 'The Power of the Dark Crystal.' (Fingers crossed he is)
