Trailer For Toby Froud's Short Puppet Film- Lessons Learned

If you love the darker works of Jim Henson, such as Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal, then you’re probably going to be just as excited as I am to see the new short puppet film Lessons Learned.

It was created by Toby Froud, AKA the baby from Labyrinth and son of Brian and Wendy, and Heather B. Henson, Jim’s youngest child and founder of puppet friendly company Ibex Puppetry:

The short and ultra mysterious trailer reveals little more than the main characters, a strange talking box, and the fact that it's a new puppet film made by a Froud and a Henson, so you know it's going to be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

Speaking of amazing, here's Toby posing with his two ultra-talented parents Brian and Wendy Froud, the folks (partly) responsible for the overall look of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth:

They must be so proud of their talented son, who is continuing the Froud family legacy of creating stylish and imaginative fantasy worlds for fans to enjoy!

So far Lessons Learned has only been shown once, as part of the Handmade Puppet Dreams film series, but it's slated to return to the big screen as part of the 2014 Portland Film Festival in August, where it's sure to get lots more love from adoring puppet film fans.
