It’s been nearly two years since we first heard that a “sequel” to Labyrinth was in the works, and now we have news that a director and writer have been chosen for the film. Most importantly, we also know that the movie will not be a reboot. We’re not even sure if it will be a sequel. At this point, it sounds more like a spinoff. [click to continue…]

River Horse’s Labyrinth Board Game hasn’t been easy to purchase at a reasonable price, which is why we are letting you know that stock is starting to roll back in. The game is available now at ThinkGeek for $49.99 and Amazon for Prime pre-order (with a stock date of April 9th) for $49.97. You might also want to keep your eyes open for the Goblins expansion—though it looks like you’ll need to be patient on that one.

If you still don’t have enough Labyrinth things (you can never have enough), the ‘Ello Worm Plush is also back in stock.

River Horse’s Labyrinth Board Game is one of our five must-have Labyrinth things. The game has been hard to get (especially at a reasonable price), so if you already have it I highly suggest pre-ordering the Goblins expansion as soon as possible. [click to continue…]

If you’re a Labyrinth fan, there are some things you absolutely need to have: [click to continue…]

Earlier this year we talked quite a bit about the official Labyrinth board game from River Horse, but getting the game out to eager fans has been a bit problematic. The good news is that ThinkGeek currently has it in stock for a reasonable price. I’m thinking interested parties should jump on it quickly.

Now, board game fans can honor Bowie’s memory and their favorite 80’s fantasy puppet opera, with a cooperative board game by Alessio Cavatore. In Jim Henson’s Labyrinth Board Game, you can play as Sarah, Hoggle, Lugo, or Sir Didymus, and work together to rescue baby Toby from the Jareth, the Goblin king.

Cavatore designed the cooperative game for one-to-four players, but a fifth player can act as Jareth himself, and work against the others to keep the baby for himself.

The pieces are beautifully sculpted 3D models of the characters. Gameplay involves 13 turns – one for each hour that Sarah has to find her brother – and an assortment of magical adventures through the labyrinth and then through the castle itself.

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth Board Game ($49.99). Check out more pics and a gameplay video below. [click to continue…]

Labyrinth has captured so many geek hearts over the years that I’m surprised we didn’t have Funko Pops before—but they’re here now and they’re magical.

Sarah with the “ello!” worm is a whimsical pair. Plus the magical Jareth, who I’m sure will sell out first. There’s a 6-inch Ludo I just want to hug, and Hoggle may be the best-suited character for a Funko pop yet.

They’ll be out in September, but you can pre-order now if you wish. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

A little while back, we revealed that Labyrinth: The Board Game, was coming out later this summer from River Horse.

People were very much into it.

If you were one of those people, you’ll be happy to know that game developer Alessio Cavatore from River Horse will guide you through the game in the video below. It’s long, but you’ll undoubtedly appreciate the attention to detail. The game has no set release date, but should be arriving in stores over the summer.

Nearly 30 years ago a movie hit the big screen and vividly defined everything glorious about the ’80s in less than two hours. From Jim Henson creatures to the timeless glamour of the late David Bowie, Labyrinth went above and beyond to transport viewers to a different world.

It was also a box office bomb.

However, Labyrinth has become a cult classic in the years since. So, to commemorate the 30th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the film back to select theaters on September 11th and 14th ahead of the special edition Blu-ray that arrives on September 20th.

So here is your chance to see David Bowie back on the big screen in this Jim Henson masterpiece. Tickets and info on participating theaters will be available on the Fathom Events website.
