The Dark Crystal was released on a Special Collector's Edition Laserdisc in 1990. Aside from a widescreen presentation of the film, the disc also includes the "World of the Dark Crystal" documentary, the theatrical trailer, and the emperor's funeral scene with the Skeksis speaking in their original language. The disc's creation was supposedly supervised by Jim Henson just before his death.
The film was re-released on laserdisc in 1994 by Buena Vista Home Video; however that version included no extra footage or features outside of the film.
