Labyrinth script
Labyrinth (1986)
Synopsis: Labyrinth is a 1986 British-American adventure musical fantasy film directed by Jim Henson, executive-produced by George Lucas, and based upon conceptual designs by Brian Froud. The film revolves around 15-year-old Sarah's (Jennifer Connelly) quest to reach the center of an enormous otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby, who Sarah wished away to Jareth, the Goblin King (David Bowie). With the exception of Connelly and Bowie, most of the film's significant characters are played by puppets produced by Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

She hikes up her dress and runs into the trees. MERLIN whimpers and

tags along behind her.

4EXT:
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TREES - DAY

SARAH comes bursting through the trees and runs down a hill toward

the street. WE PULL BACK and WE CAN SEE an enormous steel mill on the

other side of the river. And now WE NOTICE that the light isn't pink

any more but sort of dull and hazy, and the idyllic glade is barely a

suburban park, and this is just an ordinary day in a very ordinary

place.

5EXT:
AN OLD RAMBLING HOUSE - DUSK

SARAH runs up a path to an older, rambling house. She goes through

the front door, MERLIN hot on her heels, and neither one of them sees

the beautiful SNOW-WHITE BIRD that lands in a tree beside the path.

6INT:
INSIDE THE ROUSE - EVENING

SARAH bursts through the front door and makes a beeline for the

stairs. She almost makes it. SARAH'S MOTHER appears in the hallway.

MOTHER:
_Sarah_, where have you been?!!!

SARAH abruptly stops and changes to an elegantly graceful ascension

of the stairs.

SARAH (in an affected voice): I can't talk to you now. I'm in

rehearsal.

She continues grandly on and heads for her room.

MOTHER:
You were supposed to be home an hour ago to baby-sit for

Freddie! Don't we at least deserve an explanation?

SARAH stops and leans over the railing. She speaks with a

melodramatic solemnity.

SARAH:
As Meander's Queen, I've been ... meandering. Dither me not

about explanations.

With that she turns and heads for her room. On the door is a sign

that says:
"Admittance by Invitation Only." SARAH'S FATHER comes into

the hall.

FATHER:
What's that all about?

MOTHER:
It's a part in a play, (raising her voice) but that's no

reason to...

SARAH turns in her doorway. She calls down.
