Labyrinth: The Ultimate Visual History review

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Ultimate Visual History
Hardcover
Written by Paula M. Block, Terry J. Erdmann
Foreward by Toby Froud
Introduction by Brian Henson
Publisher: Insight Editions
Publication Date: October 18, 2016
Cover Price: $45.00

The brainchild of genius Jim Henson, the movie Labyrinth came out in 1986. Starring a young Jennifer Connelly and the late great musician/actor David Bowie, Labyrinth told the tale of a girl named Sarah who wishes her annoying baby brother be taken away. Bowie is Jareth the Goblin King, who comes to claim the boy. When Sarah realizes what she’s done, she is given 13 hours to solve the labyrinth and find her brother. The movie is less about story and more about the world created by Henson and his team. Filled with tons of creatures and practical effects monsters, Labyrinth is one of the most visually stimulating movies of all time.

Celebrating the film’s 30th anniversary, Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann have created a wonderful companion piece with their new book, Jim Henson’s Labyrinth: The Ultimate Visual History, from Insight Editions.

The Movie God   |  

Jim Henson's Labyrinth Goblins

In October of 2014 we shared with you news that Labyrinth, the 1986 movie directed by the late, great Jim Henson, could be getting a sequel.

It’s now being reported that, not even two weeks after Bowie left us forever, a reboot of Labyrinth is in the works.
