Dance, magic dance! The new release of Labyrinth has us up on our feet doing just that. The 35th anniversary of the epic Jim Henson film comes loaded with special features and best of all it comes on a 4K UHD format. Perhaps most impressively, the special features include 25 minutes of never before seen footage with Jim Henson.
There is also a lot of archival footage to add to this one’s magic. There is also a long list of famous actresses that all auditioned for the role of Sarah. The part went to Jennifer Connely but its amazing to think that the part could have gone to Molly Ringwald or scream queen Jill Shoelen. I’m dying to see their screen tests.
There is still a lot of archival footage and a lot of other magical bits to dig into. We can’t wait!
