Another world...
another time...
in the age of wonder.
A thousand years ago,
this land was green and good...
until the Crystal cracked.
For a single piece was lost...
a shard of the Crystal.
Then strife began...
and two new races appeared:
the cruel Skekses...
the gentle Mystics.
Here in the castle of the Crystal,
the Skekses took control.
Now the Skekses gather
in the sacred chamber...
where the Crystal hangs
above a shaft of air and fire.
The Skekses, with their hard
and twisted bodies...
their harsh and twisted wills.
For a thousand years
they have ruled...
yet now there are only ten.
A dying race
ruled by a dying emperor...
imprisoned within themselves
in a dying land.
Today, once more
they gather at the Crystal...
as the first sun climbs to its peak...
for this is the way of the Skekses,
As they ravage the land...
so, too, they learn
to draw new life from the sun.
Today, once more,
they will replenish themselves...
cheat death again...
through the power
of their source...
their treasure, their fate:
the Dark Crystal.
But today, the ceremony of the sun
gives no comfort.
Today, an emperor lies dying.
Today, a new emperor...
must seize the throne.
A thousand years ago,
the Crystal cracked.
And here, far from the castle...
the race of Mystics came
to live in a dream of peace.
Their ways were the gentle ways
of natural wizards.
Yet now, there are only ten.
A dying race...
numbly rehearsing
the ancient ways...
in a blur of forgetfulness.
But today...
the ritual gives no comfort.
Today the wisest of the Mystics
lies dying.
Today they summon the one
who must save them.
In the valley of the Mystics...
there lives a Gelfling, Jen.
The Skekses killed his family,
destroyed his clan.
Only Jen survived...
to be raised by the wisest
of the Mystics.
But there is a prophecy.
A thousand years have passed...
and now once more the world
must undergo a time of testing.
Now it must be healed...
or pass forever
into the rule of evil.
At this time,
Jen is the chosen one.
Today, Jen's pipe gives no comfort...
for today his master lies dying...
and a journey must begin...
a journey of Jen.
Master?
At the time...
when three suns meet...
Master, whats wrong?
You are in danger...
Gelfling...
and I must leave you.
Leave me?
Master, no.
Gelfling...
I have told you of the Skekses.
The Skekses killed
my mother and father.
The story runs deeper
than you know...
and you are part of it.
I don't understand.
The Skekses will vow...
to destroy you...
for the prophecy says...
you must find the Shard...
the Crystal Shard.
The Crystal Shard?
To save our world, Gelfling...
you must find the Shard...
before the three suns meet.
It not, Skekses rule forever.
Where is it?
Aughra holds the Shard.
Follow the greater sun for a day...
to the home of Aughra.
There she knows...
all the secrets.
Aughra? Follow the greater sun?
But Master, I'm only a Gelfling.
I should've told you these things...
long ago.
Now it is up to you.
Remember me, Jen.
We may meet in another life...
but not again in this one.
Master.
Don't leave me.
I hate your whimper.
Quiet!
He is not dead yet...
my Lord Chamberlain.
Kneel!
Bow!
Mine!
Mine!
Back!
I...
I am still emperor.
I...
Oh, Master, I'll go
where you send me...
though I barely understand.
Dear friend, be well.
Receive your belongings.
Receive them serenely.
Now we send forth Jen.
Watch over his dangerous quest.
Dear, dear Master...
I'll find the Shard.
I'm not ready to go alone.
All right. Alone, then.
The emperor is dead.
Which one of us
will be the new emperor?
Oh, yes, my Lord Chamberlain...
time to choose an emperor.
It should be me.
- Yes.
- Yes.
Not him. I must rule.
You should be the emperor.
There's going to be a fight.
Its time to make my move.
It's me.
We're all with you.
Chamberlain, no.
Wait. Stop. You can't.
Get back, spithead!
Chamberlain!
Lay down that
