Jareth Is Back-Return To Labyrinth by VladislavPANtic Jareth Is Back-Return To Labyrinth by VladislavPANtic
Hello my faerie friends!
As you can see Jareth is back, at least in my imagination he is..
Encouraged by your positive comments I decided to do another Labyrinth fan-art illustration and remind you all, once again, of an unforgettable Jim Henson's magical world!
Your positive response is my motivation, so love me, fear me, do as I say and I will be your slave!

I'm a huge fan of the 1986 movie, "Labyrinth" as of recently. However, one huge thing that has been bugging especially after reading alot of various intakes on the film is the following: did Sarah really go on that adventure, or was it a dream? I'd really like to hope that it did in fact occur. I tried thinking about it, however either way, something conflicts with the other points. For example, it could be possible that Sarah dreamed everything up due to everything in her room portraying something she encountered along her adventure. Or, the characters and themes she encountered could have all been aspects of Sarah's personality in physical manifestation on her journey of self discovery. 
However, moving over to the conflicting side, if this was all a dream, why was Jareth present in owl form without Sarah noticing at the very beginning of the movie in addition to the end watching her without her knowledge? If Sarah really did dream everything up, wouldn't she not dream him up, especially at the end? Plus, if she did dream all of the negative aspects up of her dream, wouldn't she be aware of the things that were occurring that were only presented to the viewer and not her, if this was form her personal view? In addition to this, could it have been possible regarding the explanation of the likeliness of the things in her room could be due to Jareth somehow conjuring up this world using her imagination as a template? Could that be why everything she encountered was similar to what she had in her room -- Jareth used everything alongside her dreams, wishes, and imagination? Plus, it feels a bit empty if it were all a dream. 
Sorry if it's so long, but what do you think?

Hey Dana, thank you for this long post:)
As for me, I think that Jim Henson(director) and Brian Froud(conceptual designer) knew exactly what they were doing..
No, it was not a dream but it wasn't this reality neither...They wanted to show how beings from other world can change their fluid shape and appear in form that is acceptable for us humans when they take ideas from our collective unconscious..
Hope this can help with the question about all those things in her room:)
Thanks again!;)

Could you please elaborate? That kind of lost me xD Are you saying it was all just her imagination
?? ;(

Hm, no, it was not her imagination...I recommend you to read "Good Faeries/Bad Faeries" by Brian Froud.:) 
For some knowledge you have to dig by yourself:) It's more fun that way;)

Wait, so will that give me the answer? Haha, sorry, I'm desperate to know xD I can't stand the idea of Jareth not being real ;( Amazing and beautiful drawing btw. I wish they can make the sequel. I heard rumors though that they will make one after they make a dark crystal sequel. Who knows. ;)

I wish they would make a sequel cause I didn't like the way it ended... Sarah was too young to understand what Jareth was offering...
