Sci-Fi Summer of 1986 Series Episode 4

The quest to save Now Playing from the Goblin King continues…. Donate Now!

While making The Empire Strikes Back George Lucas asked Jim Henson to help create new character Yoda. Henson was busy working on his own Muppet Movie, but the two did end up collaborating six years later with Labyrinth!  This fantasy film tells the tale of a girl trying to rescue her baby brother from the evil Goblin King. With Lucas helping craft the fantasy world, Henson directing, and Bowie singing, it seemed a surefire hit…and wasn’t. Donate today and you can join the Now Playing hosts on their quest through the maze of Labyrinth’s plot and characters as they review this ’86 cult classic!
