There is a spin-off OELManga prequel (''Legends of the Dark Crystal'') by Creator/{{Tokyopop}} and a graphic novel prequel trilogy (''The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths'') by Creator/ArchaiaEntertainment. A series of Young Adult novels also exists, published by Random House. A sequel titled ''Power of the Dark Crystal'' got stuck in DevelopmentHell for years (to the point that ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' did a skit on the matter) and was officially cancelled.

Though it didn't do as well on its initial theatrical run, it spawned a cult following large enough to warrant a spin-off OELManga prequel (''Legends of the Dark Crystal'') by Creator/{{Tokyopop}} and a graphic novel prequel trilogy (''The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths'') by Creator/ArchaiaEntertainment. Currently, the Henson company is holding a [[http://www.darkcrystal.com/authorquest.php contest]] to find an author for a new series of Young Adult novels. A sequel titled ''Power of the Dark Crystal'' has been stuck in DevelopmentHell for years (to the point that ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' did a skit on the matter.)

* FauxAffablyEvil: The Chamberlain. For a while he appears to be AmbiguouslyEvil, feigning sympathy and friendship towards Jen and Kira to try gain their trust but comes off as creepy and unnerving due to his [[EvilMakesYouUgly monstrous appearance being a representation of his true nature]]. He quickly shows his true colours, trying to murder Jen once they soundly reject him.

* ShoutOut: Aughra is fairly similar to the Norse god Odin, at least when you know the back story (see the EyeScream entry). They both lost an eye in the pursuit of knowledge, and both consider it an acceptable trade.
