Jim Henson's Tale of Sand: The Original Screenplay

Jim Henson's Tale of Sand: The Original Screenplay Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Discovered in the archives of The Jim Henson Company, Tale of Sand is an original graphic novel adaptation of an unproduced, feature-length screenplay written by Jim Henson and his frequent writing partner, Jerry Juhl. Tale of Sand follows scruffy everyman, Mac, who wakes up in an unfamiliar town, and is chased across the desert of the American Southwest by all manners of man and beast of unimaginable proportions. Produced with the blessing of Henson Company co-CEO Lisa Henson, Tale of Sand allows Henson fans a glimpse of some of the inspirations and set pieces that appeared in later Henson Company productions, as well as a peek into Hensons creative process before he began working full-time on Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.
