Description: The Muppets meet J.R.R. Tolkien in Jim Henson's story of a race of grotesque birdlike lizards called the Skeksis, gnomish dragons who rule their fantastic planet with an iron claw. Traditional puppets, marionettes, giant bodysuits, and mechanical constructions are mixed seamlessly in a fantasy world of towering castles, simple huts, dank caves, a giant clockwork observatory, and a magnificent landscape. Rated PG; recommended for ages 7+. (93min, USA, 1982).
