I think George Lucas invented Tatooween to have two suns, not three. So if this newly discovered system is said to contain three suns then it matches
the imagination of Jim Henson. Jim Henson created a movie called The Dark Crystal which takes place on an alien world which is in orbit around three
suns. The suns appear different sizes from this planet and overlap in a ring pattern when they are in conjunction. Every one thousand years these suns
line up over a castle with a giant crystal at its heart.
The opening words to the story goes as follows (The Crystal Method Alternate rock group includes part of this introduction in their song called 'Trip
Like I do'):
'Another world, another time,
In the age of wonder.
A thousand years ago this land was green and good,
Until the crystal cracked.
For a single piece was lost,
A shard of the crystal.
Then strife began.
And two new races appeared:
The cruel Skeksis,
The gentle Mystics.
Now the Skeksis gather in the sacred chamber where the crystal hangs above a shaft of air and fire. The Skeksis with their hard and twisted bodies,
their harsh and twisted wills. For a thousand years they have ruled, yet now there are only ten. A dying race ruled by a dying emporor, imprisoned
within themselves in a dying land. Today once more they gather at the crystal, as the first sun climbs to its peak. For this is the way of the
Skeksis, as they ravage the land, so too they learn to draw new life from the sun. Today once more they will replenish themselves, cheat death again,
through the power of their source, their treasure, their fate, the Dark Crystal.'
On a side note, Jim Henson became very depressed after this movie because the public did not appreciate the effort he put into this movie. There are
only a few of us who really took note of this effort.
The Crystal Method introduction to 'Trip Like I do' goes as follows:
'Another World, another time,
in the age of wonder,
Another world, another time,
this land was green and good,
until the crystal cracked.
Once more they will replenish themselves,
cheat death again,
through the power of their source,
