Puppetry movie - boy and girl, last humans.

I am trying to find the name of this movie I watched when I was a kid. I think it was produced with puppets or stop animation.

This boy and girl lived in a world full of weird creatures; I think they were the last humans. The boy was raised as academic, reading books with a fatherly creature. The girl was raised being 'street smart'. She knew how all the strange plants and animals worked and could survive alone. The boy and girl met when the girl saved the boy from some plant. The antagonists were these large cloaked creatures with long nails. At one point, towards the end, the girl is stabbed through the heart with one of the antagonist’s nails. They needed her blood, or something along those lines. She was brought back to life at the end.

I can't remember much else, but I think the boy had dark brown / black hair and the girl had long blonde hair.

"The Dark Crystal" (1982)

Excerpts from Wikipedia:

1) Jen, an elf-like Gelfling taken in by the Mystics after his clan was killed, is told by his Mystic master that he must find the crystal shard, and that it can be found in the home of Aughra. If he fails to do so before the three suns meet, the Skeksis will rule forever.

2)  Jen meets Kira, another surviving Gelfling who can communicate with animals, and her pet Fizzgig. They discover that they have a telepathic connection...

3)  Jen is discovered and drops the shard, but Kira throws it back to him and is stabbed to death by the Skeksis' high priest. ... Jen inserts the shard into the Crystal, unifying it as the Mystics enter the chamber and the dark palace begins to crumble away and transform into a castle of bright crystal. As Aughra, Jen and Fizzgig watch, the Mystics and Skeksis merge into tall glowing beings, known as UrSkeks, one of whom says, "We are again one", speaks to Jen of their history, and revives Kira.
