LABYRINTH
Produced by The Jim Henson Company and Lucasfilm Ltd. with creatures brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, LABYRINTH was directed by Jim Henson, who worked closely with acclaimed artist and Conceptual Designer Brian Froud, and Executive Producer George Lucas to create a mesmerizing fantasy movie adventure.

LABYRINTH, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly, was originally released in 1986. The film is an unforgettable fantasy adventure that follows Sarah Williams (Connelly) as she makes her way through the labyrinth of the Goblin King Jareth (Bowie) in search of her little brother Toby. A mainstay of the fantasy genre with its spectacular visual effects and ground-breaking animatronics, LABYRINTH is of special interest to David Bowie fans worldwide as the film contains original songs written and recorded by Bowie especially for the film.

If you haven't snatched up the Sony UHD disc releases and redeemed the enclosed MA codes for these titles, better act fast!

Nothing I suspect. Jim Henson Company did excellent 4K scans of these films for their Sony releases, and it is very likely that Shout will use those same transfers. What I am essentially saying is that the Movies Anywhere codes may get expired as we get closer to Shout's release date, if they haven't already. If you have already redeemed your codes, then you are good. I have yet to see a movie on MA that has changed to a non-MA distributor disappear from my libraries on MA retail partners.

Examples include Ferngully, Coraline, and Kubo and the Two Strings.
