A thousand years ago on the planet Thra, a magical crystal cracked, and two new races appeared: the malevolent Skeksis, who use the power of the “Dark Crystal” to continually replenish themselves, and kind wizards called Mystics. Jen is an elflike ‘Gelfling’ on a quest to restore balance to his alien world by returning a lost shard to the powerful but broken gem.
