Realizing how important Toby is to her, Sarah gives him Lancelot and returns to her room. As her father and stepmother return home, she sees her friends in the mirror and realizes even though she is growing up, she still needs them in her life every now and again.
In an instant, a number of the major characters from the Labyrinth appear in her room for a raucous celebration, and she reunites with Hoggle, Ludo, Didymus, and Ambrosius.
As they celebrate, Jareth, in his owl form, watches from outside and then flies away into the night.

Kerry Shale , David Shaughnessy. Richard Corliss noted that the film appeared to have been influenced by The Wizard of Oz and the works of Maurice Sendak , writing, " Labyrinth lures a modern Dorothy Gale out of the drab Kansas of real life into a land where the wild things are.
Sendak, in which 9-year-old Ida's baby sister is stolen by the goblins". However, the legal complaint was eventually settled, with an end credit being added that states, "Jim Henson acknowledges his debt to the works of Maurice Sendak.
The film's concept designer Brian Froud has stated that the character of Jareth was influenced by a diverse range of literary sources.
Bowie's costumes were intentionally eclectic, drawing on the image of Marlon Brando 's leather jacket from The Wild One as well as that of a knight "with the worms of death eating through his armour" from Grimms' Fairy Tales.
The dialogue starting with phrase, "you remind me of the babe" that occurs between Jareth and the goblins, in the Magic Dance sequence in the film, is a direct reference to an exchange between Cary Grant and Shirley Temple in the film The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer.
According to the film's conceptual designer Brian Froud, Labyrinth was first discussed between himself and director Jim Henson.
On the same journey, Froud "pictured a baby surrounded by goblins" and this strong visual image — along with Froud's insight that goblins traditionally steal babies — provided the basis for the film's plot.
Discussing the film's origins, Henson explained that he and Froud "wanted to do a lighter weight picture, with more of a sense of comedy since Dark Crystal got kind of heavy — heavier than we had intended.
Now I wanted to do a film with the characters having more personality, and interacting more. Labyrinth was being seriously discussed as early as March , when Henson held a meeting with Froud and children's author Dennis Lee.
While Jones is credited with writing the screenplay, the shooting script was actually a collaborative effort that featured contributions from Henson, George Lucas , Laura Phillips, and Elaine May.
Jones himself has said that the finished film differs greatly from his original vision. According to Jones, "I didn't feel that it was very much mine.
I always felt it fell between two stories, Jim wanted it to be one thing and I wanted it to be about something else.
Jones has said that Bowie's involvement in the project had a significant impact on the direction taken with the film. Jones had originally intended for the audience not to see the center of the Labyrinth prior to Sarah's reaching it, as he felt that doing so robbed the film of a significant 'hook.
Despite his misgivings, Jones re-wrote the script to allow for songs to be performed throughout the film. This draft of the script "went away for about a year", during which time it was re-drafted first by Laura Phillips and subsequently by George Lucas.
An early draft of the script attributed to Jones and Phillips is markedly different from the finished film.
The early script has Jareth enter Sarah's house in the guise of Robin Zakar, the author of a play she is due to perform in.
Sarah does not wish for her brother to be taken away by the goblins, and Jareth snatches him away against her will.
Jareth is overtly villainous in this draft of the script, and during his final confrontation with Sarah he tells her he would "much rather have a Queen" than "a little goblin prince.
In the extensive junkyard scene, Jareth operates the Junk Lady as a puppet, whereas in the film she is autonomous.
There is actually a pub or bar in the Labyrinth where the Man with Hat and Hoggle gather, and the river Lethe in Greek myth is mentioned.
As well, the ballroom scene features extensive dialogue between Jareth and Sarah, whereas in the film there is none although there is in the novelization by A.
Smith , and the goings-on with the dancers in the ballroom are more overtly sexualized. The re-drafted script was sent to Bowie, who found that it lacked humor and considered withdrawing his involvement in the project as a result.
To ensure Bowie's involvement, Henson asked Jones to "do a bit more" to the script in order to make it more humorous.
May's changes "humanized the characters" and pleased Henson to the extent that they were incorporated into the film's shooting script.
At least twenty-five treatments and scripts were drafted for Labyrinth between —85, and the film's shooting script was only ready shortly before filming began.
The protagonist of the film was, at different stages of its development, going to be a King whose baby had been put under an enchantment, a princess from a fantasy world, and a young girl from Victorian England.
In order to make the film more commercial, they made the lead a teenage girl from contemporary America. Henson noted that he wished to "make the idea of taking responsibility for one's life — which is one of the neat realizations a teenager experiences — a central thought of the film.
Auditions for the lead role of Sarah began in England in April Helena Bonham Carter auditioned for the role, but was passed over in favor of an American actress.
Monthly auditions were held in the U. Of these, Krakowski, Sheedy and Corman were considered to be the top candidates. The character of Jareth also underwent some significant developments during the early stages of pre-production.
According to Henson he was originally meant to be another puppet creature in the same vein as his goblin subjects. During a meeting that took place on June 18, , Henson showed Bowie The Dark Crystal and a selection of Brian Froud's concept drawings to pique his interest in the project.
The script itself was terribly amusing without being vicious or spiteful or bloody, and it had a lot more heart in it than many other special effects movies.
So I was pretty hooked from the beginning. The team that worked on Labyrinth was largely assembled from talent who had been involved in various other projects with the Jim Henson Company.
Kevin Clash , a crew member on Sesame Street best known for voicing the character Elmo , worked on the film. Members of Henson's family also worked on the production, including son Brian and daughter Cheryl.
Newcomers working on the production included puppeteer Anthony Asbury, who had previously worked on the satirical puppet show Spitting Image.
Principal photography began on April 15, , at Elstree Studios. In the making-of documentary Inside the Labyrinth , Henson stated that although Jim Henson's Creature Shop had been building the puppets and characters required for around a year and a half prior to shooting, "everything came together in the last couple weeks.
Although each of the film's key puppets required a small team of puppeteers to operate it, the most complex puppet of the production was Hoggle.
Shari Weiser was inside the costume, while Hoggle's face was radio-controlled by Brian Henson and three other operators.
Speaking in the Inside the Labyrinth documentary, Brian Henson explained that Weiser "does all the body movement and her head is inside the head.
However, the jaw is not connected to her jaw. Nothing that the face is doing has any connection with what she's doing with her face.
The other four members of the crew are all radio crew, myself included. Basically what it takes is a lot of rehearsing and getting to know each other.
At the early stages of filming, stars Connelly and Bowie found it difficult to interact naturally with the puppets they shared most of their scenes with.
Bowie told Movieline "I had some initial problems working with Hoggle and the rest because, for one thing, what they say doesn't come from their mouths, but from the side of the set, or from behind you.
And by the end of the film, it wasn't a challenge anymore. They were there, and they were their characters. The film required large and ambitious sets to be constructed, from the Shaft of Hands to the rambling, distorted Goblin City where the film's climactic battle takes place.
The Shaft of Hands sequence was filmed on a rig that was roughly forty feet high, and required nearly a hundred performers to operate the grey, scaly hands integral to the scene.
Connelly was strapped into a harness when shooting the scene, and would spend time between takes suspended midway up the shaft. The set of the Goblin City was built on Stage 6 at Elstree Studios near London, and required the largest panoramic back-cloth ever made.
According to Production Designer Elliot Scott , the biggest challenge he faced was building the forest Sarah and her party pass through on their way to Jareth's Castle.
The film's production notes state, "the entire forest required truckloads of tree branches, 1, turfs of grass, pounds of dried leaves, bags of lichen , and 35 bundles of mossy old man's beard.
While most filming was conducted at Elstree Studios, a small amount of location shooting was carried out in England and the U.
Shooting wrapped on September 8, Most of the visual effects on Labyrinth were achieved in-camera, with several notable exceptions.
The most prominent of these post-production effects was the computer-generated owl that appears at the opening of the film.
The sequence was created by animators Larry Yaeger and Bill Kroyer ,   and marked the first use of a realistic CGI animal in a film.
The scene where Sarah encounters the Fire Gang had to be altered in post-production as it had been filmed against black velvet cloth, to disguise the puppeteers, and a new forest background was added behind.
Jim Henson was unhappy with the compositing of the finished scene, although he considered the puppetry featured in it worthy of inclusion.
Henson received help editing the film from executive producer George Lucas. According to Henson, "When we hit the editing, I did the first cut, and then George was heavily involved on bringing it to the final cut.
After that, I took it over again and did the next few months of post-production and audio.
I always want to go one way, and George goes another way, but we each took turns trading off, giving and taking.
George tends to be very action-oriented and he cuts dialogue quite tight; I tend to cut looser, and go for more lyrical pauses, which can slow the story.
So, I loosen up his tightness, and he tightens my looseness. The music video for "Underground" features Bowie as a nightclub singer who stumbles upon the world of the Labyrinth, encountering many of the creatures seen in the film.
The clip for "As the World Falls Down" integrates clips from the film, using them alongside black-and-white shots of Bowie performing the song in an elegant room.
In , Capitol Studios announced that it will be reissuing the soundtrack on a Vinyl disc, this will include all five originals songs of David Bowie along with Trevor Jones's score.
The production of Labyrinth was covered in multiple high-profile magazines and newspapers, in anticipation of its release, with articles appearing in The New York Times , Time and Starlog magazine.
Labyrinth was featured in music trade papers such as Billboard due to David Bowie's soundtrack for the film. A range of merchandise was produced to accompany the film's release, including plush toys of Sir Didymus and Ludo, a board game, computer game and multiple jigsaw puzzles.
An exhibition of the film's characters and sets toured across shopping malls in various cities in the U. The film was released in Denmark as Labyrinten til troldkongens slot The Labyrinth to the Troll King's Castle on February 20, , and saw its last theatrical release in Hungary under the title Fantasztikus labirintus Fantastic Labyrinth when it premiered there on July 7, In , the film was digitally remastered and re-released at The Astor Theatre in Melbourne , Australia.
The re-release was described as a collector's edition, and featured a set of exclusive collectors cards that featured concept art by Brian Froud.
The film was released on Blu-ray in , in a package that replicated the extras featured on the Anniversary Edition DVD.
The Blu-ray release featured one new special feature, a picture-in-picture track that lasts the length of the film and features interviews with the crew and several minor cast members including Warwick Davis.
There also will be an Amazon exclusive version with packaging similar to Jareth's Escher-style stairs. Labyrinth opened at number eight in the U.
The film received mixed to positive reviews from critics. While acknowledging that Labyrinth was made with "infinite care and pains", Roger Ebert gave the film two stars out of four as he felt that the film "never really comes alive".
Ebert said that as the film was set in an "arbitrary world" none of the events in it had any consequences, robbing the film of any dramatic tension.
Siskel objected to the film's "violent" plot, writing, "the sight of a baby in peril is one of sleaziest gimmicks a film can employ to gain our attention, but Henson does it.
Other critics were more positive. Kathryn Buxton found that it had "excitement and thrills enough for audiences of all ages as well as a fun and sometimes slightly naughty sense of humor".
Several critics noted the film's subtext, and found it successful to varying degrees. Saw Tek Meng acknowledged, "Sarah's experiences in the labyrinth are symbolic of her transition from child to woman" but ultimately found the film "too linear" for its latent themes to come through.
Hoffmann , stating that Hoffman's The Nutcracker "is also about the voyage to womanhood, including the hint of sexual awakening, which Sarah experiences too in the presence of a goblin king.
Connelly's portrayal of Sarah polarized critics and received strong criticism from some reviewers. Critic Kirk Honeycutt referred to Connelly as "a bland and minimally talented young actress"  Writing for The Miami News , Jon Marlowe stated, "Connelly is simply the wrong person for the right job.
She has a squeaky voice that begins to grate on you; when she cries, you can see the onions in her eyes. Petersburg Times praised her acting saying, "Connelly makes the entire experience seem real.
She acts so naturally around the puppets that you begin to believe in their life-like qualities.
Bowie's performance was variously lauded and derided. In his largely positive review of the film, Corliss praised him as "charismatic" referring to his character as a " Kabuki sorcerer who offers his ravishing young antagonist the gilded perks of adult servitude".
He has just the right look for a creature who's the object of both loathing and secret desire. Petersburg Times found, "Bowie forgoes acting, preferring to prance around his lair while staring solemnly into the camera.
He's not exactly wooden. Plastic might be a more accurate description. Following the film's mixed reception, Henson came "the closest I've seen him to turning in on himself and getting quite depressed", his son Brian told Life magazine.
Since Henson's death, Labyrinth has been re-evaluated by several notable critics. A review from in Empire magazine called the film "a fabulous fantasy" and wrote, "David Bowie cuts a spooky enough figure in that fright wig to fit right in with this extraordinary menagerie of Goth Muppets.
And Jennifer Connelly, still in the flush of youth, makes for an appealingly together kind of heroine. Despite its poor performance at the American box office, Labyrinth was a success on home video and later on DVD.
I can't believe they still recognize me from that movie. It's on TV all the time and I guess I pretty much look the same.
Labyrinth has become a cult film. Fantasy author Neil Gaiman and artist Dave McKean were called in to write and direct a film similar in spirit to Labyrinth , and MirrorMask was ultimately released in selected theaters in after premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.
I would never seek to profit from Bowie's death. Since initial release, Labyrinth has been translated to other forms of media.
A tie-in novelization was written by A. Smith ,  which, along with Smith's novelization of The Dark Crystal , was reprinted with illustrations and Jim Henson's notes by Archaia Publishing in Marvel Comics published a three-issue comic book adaptation,  which was first released in a single volume as Marvel Super Special 40 in People would come and sing the songs, and dress up, I think.
He said the production was not intended for Broadway theatre but "could be for London's West End ". In January , Nicole Perlman announced that she had been hired to write the script for the sequel.

An afterlife therapist and his daughter meet a friendly young ghost when they move into a crumbling mansion in order to rid the premises of wicked spirits.
A young boy with a distant father enters a world of make-believe and magic through a portal within an antique book.
Teenager Sarah is forced by her father and her stepmother to babysit her baby brother Toby while they are outside home. Toby does not stop crying and Sarah wishes that her stepbrother be taken by the Goblin King Jareth.
Out of the blue, Toby stops crying and when Sarah looks for him in the cradle, she learns that her wish was granted and the Goblin King Jareth has taken him to his castle in the Goblin City in the middle of a labyrinth.
Sarah repents and asks Jareth to give Toby back; but the Goblin King tells her that she has to rescue her brother before midnight.
Soon Sarah teams up with some allies. Will they rescue Toby in time? By today's standards "Labyrinth" may look dated and cheap but there's something about it that makes it special.
David Bowie makes it a stand alone movie in the weird ranking. The man is crazy but his performance is excellent! Jennifer Connely being 16 at the time delivers a solid and tender performance.
She was very, very cute and her performance totally gained the audience's love. The tale is fantastic and keeps you interested from the beginning to the end.
The musical moments are also great! The thing that I liked the most about the movie is it's art direction. The world that is created is taken directly from everyone's fantasy world idea.
Colorful and dark at the same time. Better than the "Neverending Story" movies, "Labyrinth" should be watched for lovers of sci-fi.
