Sarah (a teenage Jennifer
Connelly) rehearses the role of a fairy-tale queen, performing for her
stuffed animals. She is about to discover that the time has come to
leave her childhood behind. In real life she has to baby-sit her
brother and contend with parents who don't understand her at all. Her
petulance leads her to call the goblins to take the baby away, but when
they actually do, she realizes her responsibility to rescue him. Sarah
negotiates the Labyrinth to reach the City of the Goblins and the
castle of their king. The king is the only other human in the film and
is played by a glam-rocking David Bowie, who performs five of his
songs. The rest of the cast are puppets, a wonderful array of Jim
Henson's imaginative masterpieces. Henson gives credit to children's
author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, and the creatures in the movie
will remind Sendak fans of his drawings. The castle of the king is a
living M.C. Escher set that adults will enjoy. The film combines the
highest standards of art, costume, and set decoration. Like executive
producer George Lucas's other fantasies, Labyrinth mixes adventure with lessons about growing up.
Relive the magic! This newly restored, 2-disc anniversary edition of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth contains an all-new commentary and bonus features that are guaranteed to captivate as never before. David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly invite you into a magical universe where nothing is what it seems! Babysitting infant stepbrother Toby on a weekend night isn’t young Sarah’s (Connelly) idea of fun. Frustrated by his crying, she secretly imagines the Goblins from her favorite book, Labyrinth, carrying Toby away. When her fantasy comes true, a distraught Sarah must enter a maze of illusion to bring Toby back from a kingdom inhabited by mystical creatures and governed by the wicked Goblin King (Bowie).
