Having done substantial work with George Lucas on American Graffiti and the Star Wars films, Gary Kurtz came to work with Jim Henson as a producer and the second unit director on The Dark Crystal. He took a special interest in advising composer Trevor Jones on matching the score to the action. Subsequently, his work included producing the 1985 film Return to Oz which utilized much of the same behind-the-scenes talent as The Dark Crystal.
