Another world, another time, another age.

The German dub of the series changed the Skeksis' titles from those in the original films. "Kaiser" ("Emperor") is now "Mächtigste" ("the Most Powerful"), the title "Chamberlain" was originally in English but is now "Kammerherr" (literal translation), "Hohepriester" ("High Priest") is now "Zeremonienmeister" ("Master of Ceremonies"), "Wissenschaftler" ("Scientist") is now "Gelehrter" ("Scholar"), and "Historiker" ("Historian") is now "Schriftwächter" ("Scripture Guardian").

So well done. I thought it was going to be a full CG over production of a classic, I was so wrong. Some younger viewers might be off put by the earlier puppetry style characters growing up in this computer generation age, but not this guy! The characters were true to the original, yet used modern technology to enhance the background and scenery. I think this production was created by people who are true fans of the original motion picture. In my opinion Mr. Henson would be extremely proud.
