Like many Jim Henson franchises, The Dark Crystal has been an enduring property. BOOM!’s partnership with the Jim Henson Company (see "BOOM! Extends Deal with The Jim Henson Company") has enabled the release of a comic book prequel to the film (see “Archaia Releasing Sequel to Jim Henson's 'Dark Crystal'”). River Horse Games is releasing a board game adaptation (see “Another Jim Henson Classic Adapted Into Board Game”), and McFarlane Toys is working on a line of Labyrinth and Dark Crystal figures (see “McFarlane Toys To Release 'Labyrinth' And 'The Dark Crystal' Figures”). Finally, Netflix has their own Dark Crystal prequel planned for release in 2019 (see “Netflix Plans 'Dark Crystal' Series”).
