Labyrinth: The Novelization
Labyrinth: The Novelization | Jim Henson
37 posts | 18 read | 28 to read
Return to the Kingdom of Whence in this sprawling prequel to Jim Henson s classic film Labyrinth. Finally back in print and for the first time in hardcover is the novelization of LABYRINTH written by A.C.H. Smith and personally overseen by Jim Henson. This is the first in a series of novels from the Jim Henson Archives. This beautiful hardcover features unpublished goblin illustrations by legendary illustrator and concept artist Brian Froud and an exclusive peek into Jim Henson s creative process with 50 never-before-seen pages from his personal journal, detailing the initial conception of his ideas for LABYRINTH."

Mehso-so

This is only the 3rd novelization I‘ve ever read. It‘s really not a genre I‘m into. The entire time I was reading this I enjoyed myself, but mostly wanted to watch the movie again. (One of my all time favorite childhood films!) I don‘t actually know if that‘s the reaction one is “supposed” to have when reading a novelization or not. The one really cool thing I got from this that wasn‘t in the film, is the end includes a section with original⬇️

IndoorDame sketches from Brian Froud, excerpts from Jim Henson‘s planning journal, and a recount of the initial conversation between them that led to the initial idea for the film. #BBRCMidleGradeMovieNovelization @LibrarianRyan 3mo
LibrarianRyan This has been on my list for a while. But I purposefully have not read it because so many other labyrinth offshoots or stories suck so bad. because for me too, it is my childhood favorite. Actually it's my bad day movie. If josh sees me put in on when I come home for work he hides. 😁 3mo

I loved the novelization of Labyrinth. It has always been one of my favorite movies. As I was reading, I could imagine every scene in my head. Very enjoyable and would have been a quick read if life didn‘t keep getting in the way this past week.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

1. It‘s tagged. It‘s my I‘ve had a bad day movie.
2. Hummmm. Fast and Furious. I just love a brainless action movie with beautiful fast cars.
3. Cambodia and Ankor Watt
4. Space opera
5. English and I can read French. Not as fluently as I once did though.

SkeletonKey @FlowerFairy @umbrellagirl - I might need to go again 😆 So I feel kind of bad because when I saw it in theaters 10+ years ago they had not restored it so it didn‘t hold up well. But I‘m pleased to report that IT WAS WONDERFUL THIS TIME!! 5y

I first watched Labyrinth when I was about 10. I found the VHS tape of it in my uncle's basement and decided to give it a chance. After watching it for the first time, I fell in love. I honestly believe Labyrinth is my most watched film. The novelization is fantastic, and provides the reader with more insight into the world and characters of the original movie.

RadicalReader @faerie_druid what an absolutely awesome movie I still watch it to this day repeatedly loving it endless 4y

This was an enjoyable read. I noticed a few little extra parts added in the story but, all in all, I thought it was a pretty decent novelization of the film. This is a great book for any Labyrinth fan.

Worth it for the sketches and Jim Henson's notes alone, but really not a bad prose adaptation of the script either. I think the author had his thesaurus out the whole time. Some of the word choices were... odd.
