About the Movie

Labyrinth is a classic fantasy movie filmed in 1985-86, released in theatres in 1986. The initial script by Terry Jones of Monty Python's Flying Circus was based on drawings created by Brian Froud. Jim Henson brought the film to life with rock star David Bowie as Jareth, the Goblin King, and Jennifer Connelly as young heroine Sarah Williams, along with Brian Froud's own son Toby, playing Sarah's baby brother.

Sarah's stepmother has once again assumed Sarah would be happy to babysit her infant stepbrother, Toby. Sarah is hurt that her stepmother and father go out every single weekend, leaving Sarah behind to watch a brother she is apparently not fond of. After arguing with her parents, Sarah tries to quite Toby's cries while a storm rages outside.

Frustrated that she can't quiet Toby, Sarah tells him a story about the Goblin King falling in love with a beautiful young girl whose stepmother always made her stay home with the baby. Toby continues to cry and Sarah makes a desperate wish that the goblins would come and take him way. Realizing her wish has come true, Sarah tries to persuade Jareth to return Toby. The king tells her that she can only rescue Toby by finding her way through the labyrinth outside Jareth's castle. Sarah has 13 hours to solve the labyrinth before Jareth will turn Toby into a goblin.

Sarah sets off to rescue Toby, meeting adventure and strange creatures along the way, and befriending Hoggle, Ludo, and Sir Didymus. Her friends help her through various stages and setbacks she encounters along her journey.
