'Labyrinth' sequel in the works? Not exactly

Labyrinth

(Everett Collection)

Fan sites went a little wild on Friday when they stumbled upon a bit of news that The Jim Henson Company was working on a sequel to Labyrinth, the bizarre, beloved 1986 fantasy starring Jennifer Connelly and David Bowie. But, sources tell EW that’s not the full truth. While they are working on a Fraggle Rock movie and a Dark Crystal sequel, as the Variety article stated, there are currently no plans to reboot, revive, or make a sequel to Labyrinth. It’s one of those legacy titles that is floated at most meetings, but, sadly, nothing is actually in development at the moment.

Let’s drown our sorrows in “Magic Dance.”

The Jim Henson Company had no comment.
