Sweet Bulging Goblin Trousers, The Labyrinth Sequel Is Coming

And so am I.

Recommended Videos

Throw a baby in the air and give a big ol’ F.U. to adulthood: Labyrinth II is really and truly happening.

Considering the pivotal impact Labyrinth had on me as a wee ’90s pup, the announcement of The Bulge’s Return actually feels a little anti-climactic. Hidden in a Variety article about Billy Crystal joining the production of Which Witch (totally rad news, by the way) is this gem of a sentence:

It [the Jim Henson company] is also working on a quartet of legacy titles in the Henson library — a Fraggle Rock movie that’s been in development at New Regency; a sequel to 1982’s The Dark Crystal; a sequel to 1986’s Labyrinth; and a movie based on the Emmet Otter character.

TALK ABOUT BURYING THE LEAD, VARIETY! Forget Billy “The Dark Crystal” Crystal (sorry, Billy, but you just don’t have the same androgynous appeal), is David Bowie attached? What about Hoggle? Or Ludo? HAS ANYONE TALKED TO SIR DIDYMUS’ AGENT?

Jim Henson Company, if you happen to need any ideas for Labyrinth: The Second One, get at me. My friend Emily and I made a pretty compelling sequel in my backyard in the mid ’90s. It’s edgy stuff.

Sequel-haters to the left, y’all. You won’t take this one away.
