Since we need some laughs after hearing that Steve may or may not be leaving the Muppets, and some of us like @dwayne1115 and @JimAndFrank think Steve Swanson and JD Hansel are smart and funny, here they are talking about the new Dark Crystal series and making jokes about why it took them so long to make it. Listen from 29:50 to 49:13: http://muppethub.com/mft1/

“It’s been shooting since last November, it’s so cool that Netflix could get behind it in such a big way so that we can do it RIGHT. I say we, but I’ve been doing Happytime Murders, so it’s really my sister’s [Lisa Henson] and Halle Stanford‘s project. They’ve really put together a great, great time in London.

And I’ll be honest, I thought those days were gone. I thought by the 80’s, the idea of being able to walk into a stage and see an incredible fantasy world realized was just long gone because of CG and everything like that. But they’ve REALLY done it right. It’s GREAT. The workmanship is just stunning, the artistic quality is RIGHT THERE again, what I thought maybe was lost, it’s still there. They’ll be shooting for another few weeks, and then there will be a huge amount of post production."

Oooh, Helena Bonham Carter! She'd be perfect for something like this!

:news: Toughpigs just posted an article with photos of the three Gelfling protagonists and a voice cast list for both Gelflings and Skekses/Mystics. Mark Hamil, noted Muppet guest star will be involved, as well as Harvey Firestein who previously appeared on Sesame Street. Helena Bonnam Carter is part of the cast, as well as Louise Gold who I find interesting won't be voicing her own character (Augra). Check it out, sorry I don't know how to embed links here.

I'm a bit weary. If Jim himself couldn't make TDC work, I don't know if the production team behind Alt/Reality & The Happytime Murders will be able to.
