>>109900857>I think it's better than fine. The issue is, is it fitting? It had an airy look like a modern take on art from very very old books. Like we're reading a historical recording that's half legend. So that aspect fits.
I think it got worse with the second sequel. It shifts away again and the Gelfling end up not really looking like Gelfling, for one thing.>I mean that's not the writers fault. Spurrier was adapting a script already made for a Dark Crystal 2. Blame whoever at Hensen felt that was the way to go for a follow up.
So the original writers, and the original writing? Okay, that just moves it one layer.
I would like to know who thought it'd be a good idea. I suspect Lisa, since she's the showrunner and Brian's the workman. I am reminded that the aim of the Skeksis segment on the Henson puppet making challenge series was to create a Skeksis that was returning to the castle after banishment. That smacks of a way to get a long-lost (new to the audience) Skeksis to appear in a sequel film, having skipped the reunification, to me, but it could also be a prototype for the idea of new Skeksis returning to the castle such as we'll probably be seeing in the second season.
Makes me wonder if anyone from Creature Shop Challenge ended up working on the new show.>I do think starting this major revival with prequels is the smarter move though.
Agreed. For one thing, with a prequel they have a lot of existing lore material from the original creatives to illustrate and expand upon. It makes for a nice head start.
