I honestly don't know how to feel about this news:

From AintItCoolNews.com:
Holy Sweet Puppet Poo! Genndy Tartakovsky to direct THE POWER OF THE DARK CRYSTAL!!!
Hey folks, Harry here... On the tip toppest level of holy shit coolosity is Genndy Tartakovsky directing THE POWER OF THE DARK CRYSTAL... with Brian Froud back to design new characters... brought to life through amazing puppets and CG backgrounds ("like SIN CITY" and the forthcoming 300). The fucking creator of SAMURAI JACK and the best STAR WARS anything, possibly ever. (Yeah yeah, but I don't know about you, but I have compulsively been watching the CLONE WARS part 1 & 2 dvds like animated crack for a very long time now. They've become comfort cinematic confections. I can't get enough. And I desperately have wanted Genndy to expand the scope of his immense cinematic prowess from Cartoon Network to the big screen. I never dreamt that he'd do so with one of my all time drooling faves. Production is supposed to begin late this summer, pre-production is already busy as hell... and how much do we all want to see those new Brian Froud character designs... like the Fire Girl that steals the Crystal to use it's power to help reignite the dying sun around their planet. WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT LOOK LIKE? ReIgnite a Dying Sun with part of the Dark Crystal? Does Aughra have a rocket ship that runs on shroom power? This is absolutely one of the top projects in the world I'm now anticipating. Variety deserves the credit for the scoop. But I don't know about you, but this is one I'll be dream fasting about till it comes out!

Hmmmm....

I fear that it will be as good as all Jim-Henson-related projects have been since Jim Henson died.







i.e. It will suck.

Muppets in Space had Hogan, Kathy Griffin, and inappropriate innuendo.

Henson Co. was behind Farscape.

Muppet Treasure Island was fun.

And Mirror Mask was awesome.

They've done plenty of good stuff since the master died.

With Gendy, no wrong will be done.
