The Prequel to The Dark Crystal is here and it’s coming to Netflix!
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
From the official website:
“A beloved classic from the 80s marks its return as Netflix, the world’s leading internet entertainment network, will bring The Jim Henson Company’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance exclusively to members around the world. The 10-episode fantasy adventure series is a prequel to the groundbreaking 1982 fan favorite The Dark Crystal, and takes place many years before the events of the film. The series will be shot in the U.K., and will star an ensemble of fantastical, state-of-the-art creatures created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ and Brian Froud, the original feature’s conceptual designer.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.”
The first time I ever saw any part of The Dark Crystal series was while I was at the Hamburger Mary’s in Chicago! I was fifteen and super confused at what I was watching, but, honestly, I was hypnotized! I literally can’t believe they are bringing this back!
The best part? They will be using Animatronics and Puppets! NOT CGI!
