Oh how exciting! I can't watch this until later, but I hope they do this for other FF titles too!

...Part of the inspiration for FFIX was The Dark Crystal?

.................

So THAT'S why I got so attached to FFIX.
It all makes sense now.

That explains the crazy creatures in FFIX!
I've always been curious about the diversity of humanoid characters in FFIX. Here we have hippo-people, bird-people, wolf-people, goblins, rat-people, and so on... Even some of the characters who are listed as 'humans' have blue-skin. These people all share the world and nobody questions them.

It is very much a Jim Henson-esque world.
