The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, prequel to Jim Henson‘s 1982’s puppet cinematic showcase The Dark Crystal, is almost here, debuting on August 30. The show will run for 10 episodes on streaming giant Netflix:
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.
While the show did have a previous teaser trailer, that one had no real footage from the series. With the series just a few months away, we are finally getting some real footage from the upcoming series:
The main cast features the voices of Taron Egerton (Rian), Anya Taylor-Joy (Brea), Nathalie Emmanuel (Deet), and Donna Kimball (Aughra), with many others doing guest appearances.
Here’s a poster for the series:
Will this and the recent Japanese/Taiwanese series Thunderbolt Fantasy help make puppets popular again? Probably not, but one can hope.
