Trivia

The story for this film came about from several conversations during production of The Dark Crystal (1982) between Jim Henson, David Odell and 'Brian Froud' about a possible sequel. When the original film proved only a modest success in theaters, Henson drifted from the idea of producing a follow-up. Years later, when the original proved a huge success on DVD and generated a large cult following, Henson and Froud's notes were re-discovered, and The Henson Company decided to move ahead with a sequel.
