Abstract:

Jim Henson uses the art of puppetry to create visual effects that until this time were possible to attain only with animation. The puppets in ''Labyrinth,'' inventively created from the drawings of the conceptual designer Brian Froud, are a long way from Jim Henson's original Muppets, which used the traditional puppet box. The story of the film is a variation on a classic theme from children's literature. Following a young girl as she begins to change into a woman. She wishes her brother were not her responsibility and magically this occurs. The film is her journey to get him back - through the labyrinth of mazes, puzzles, magic and topsy-turvy twists of logic that must lead her to the center, where the goblin king is holding her brother.
