Turns Out There’s No Labyrinth Sequel In the Works After All

BALLS.

Yesterday we shared with you a little tidbit buried in a Variety article—that The Jim Henson Company is working on a sequel to Labyrinth, the movie that slingshotted so many geeks of a certain *cough* age straight into puberty. Alas, we are here to tell you that Variety punked us all—the Labyrinth sequel is not actually happening. Your mileage may vary.

Via Entertainment Weekly:

“While [the Jim Henson Company is] working on a Fraggle Rock movie and a Dark Crystal sequel, as the Variety article stated, there are currently no plans to reboot, revive, or make a sequel to Labyrinth. It’s one of those legacy titles that is floated at most meetings, but, sadly, nothing is actually in development at the moment.”

Looks like Sir Didymus isn’t coming out of retirement quite yet after all. Your dreams of further David Bowie bulgeitude will have to remain just that—dreams.
