This Fan Spent Two Years Re-editing The Dark Crystal And HOLY SH!T

As if the 1982 Jim Henson & Frank Oz fantasy wasn’t creepy enough, scoodidabop went and re-edited the whole thing. This fanmade director’s cut is meant to more closely resemble Henson and Oz’s original vision for the film.

From the scoodidabop:

Early versions of The Dark Crystal were a bit different than the version we see today. Jim Henson and Frank Oz originally sought to create a much darker story that relied more on the audience and less on voice-overs and inner monologues explaining the plot. In this version there’s no narrator, Jen’s inner monologues are gone, and the Skeksis hardly ever say anything in English (Aughra speaks some Skesis too!). This version is much more modern and a little darker with this original audio and the slightly different score. Some of the scenes are moved around too, which adds to the surreal feel of the original film. Some test audiences were more casual moviegoers and responded negatively to this version so the Henson team redubbed the ENTIRE film to help explain the plot to the audience up front and make things more obvious.

The whole thing is currently available in its entirety on YouTube, so be sure to check it out before the copyright lawyers swoop in. Also check out the Menta Floss interview with the mad genius behind this creepy cut.

A Little Bit on the Sonic 2 HD Side: I know I’m in the minority when I say Sonic 4 was pretty good. And a lot of people have taken the mentality that “If Sega can’t remake Sonic the right way, I will.” This gameplay preview of a fan-made remake of Sonic 2 is definitely impressive. Personally, I’m not usually a fan of vector graphics in games, though. But to keep budgets low and dev schedules short, pixely goodness must be cast aside. Sprites for life.

A Little Bit On The Sailor Moon Side: This live-action Sailor Moon short by DGS Studios and Roll and Rixy raised over $5,000 (doubling their $2,500 goal) in donations for the group to produce a full feature. The costumes are handmade, the music is all original, and the acting is… questionable, but you can tell a lot of heart went into making this.
