The Labyrinth


The Labyrinth is a maze that Sarah must solve in the movie Labyrinth. It is filled with twists and turns, illusions and danger, creatures both helpful and full of deceit. There are a few people who seem to know their way around the Labyrinth, such as Hoggle and the Worm, but for the most part, the inhabitants are just as lost as Sarah. Creatures living in the Labyrinth range from the very large, such as Humongous and Ludo, to the very small, like the Worm and the Brick Keepers.

Dialogue from the film indicates that Jareth, the Goblin King, created the Labyrinth.

The manga Return to Labyrinth shows this to be the case. Jareth and Mizumi sailed into the world of the Labyrinth after journeying across many other worlds together. Jareth, tired of Mizumi and her lack of the "hidden depths" he had hoped to find in her, built the Labyrinth with his heart at the center and challenged her to find it, which she failed to do.
