Man, dude, they ripped of Indiana Jones. Can't they rip off The Dark Crystal? It has all the elements, a hero on a quest, saving his word. The skeksi villains are truly evil. Garthim, bloodbats,

They could make the main hero a Gnelfling, played by a Gnome.

Didn't Dark Crystal come out before Raider's of the Lost Ark? Also Jim Hensons Studios worked along side LucasFilms with many of their projects.

Dark Crystal is a great movie.

Those birds from The Dark Crystal remind me of the bird people in Sethekk Halls.

So... you want "The Dark Crystal" to rip off "The Dark Crystal?"


I think he means "WoW ripped off Indiana Jones, can't they rip off Dark Crystal?"

Which they did, technically, that's where arakkoa come from, but that was before Blizzard forgot how to make any but the most ham-handed references.

You remind me of the baby
What baby? the baby with the power
What power? power of voodoo
Who do? you do
Do what? remind me of the baby

Skeksis in WoW. Super cool.

Gelflings would be a neat addition, too. Would never happen, but still... cool.

Also, David Bowie. Dance baby dance.

Problem is the licensing fees would probably be quite high. Labyrinth is owned by Henson/Lucasfilm and Dark Crystal just by Henson, so they could charge a pretty penny for the character rights. Would be easier just do a Dark Crystal MMO.

I also forgot The Neverending Story, Time Bandits, and The Princess Bride.

Dang, doo, it would be so cool if they referred to these guys... You know the developers are in their late 20's, early to mid '30's. They know how cool those movies were/are.

Especially The Neverending Story. Gad, that movie was so flippin' cool

EDIT: I've also read the book. The 80's movie mishmashes about 1/3 of the actual novel. Original texts had the real world printed in green, and all chapters set in Fantastica were printed in red. Found the book in my high school library when I was a junior back in '96.

They already have the Kessel Run as a quest joke + Harrison Jones + et cetera.

How hard would it be to have an unforgivably sexy Belf surrounded by goblins ? And stealing a baby ? - sounds like a quest.

I'm sure a Troll could say something like a transmutation of those lyrics. We know how trolls feel about voodoo.

Love that movie. I recently watched a deleted scene where the original Emperor's funeral is held, powerful !@#$.

Also, this is a youtube clip I must show you. It's hilarious and relevant.
