The Power of the Dark Crystal.

So check this out – there's a "Dark Crystal" sequel to The Dark Crystal in the works, which is then meant to be followed up with an animated series. I'm not entirely sure how to feel about this. On the one hand, I'm utterly excited to see more stories about the gelflings and Aughra and the Skeksis, but on the other I'm also utterly apprehensive since none of the Muppet movies have felt quite right since Jim Henson passed away.

"Wait a moment," I hear you Henson fans saying. "Skeksis? How can the Skeksis come back?" Apparently the Dark Crystal gets split again in the sequel, which (spoiler alert!) I'm guessing means that they separate from their Ur-sol halves. Can you imagine that morning-after conversation?
