Netflix released the first teaser for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance today. And it is beautiful! Check out the poster below to see how amazing this show looks!
From the music, to the landscape of Thra and the caves, everything is magical. From what we see in the teaser, this world has so much more beauty than was featured in the film, The Dark Crystal. Of course with the difference in technology from the 80’s til now, I knew it would look amazing!
The series is a prequel to the 1982 film. In the film, two Gelflings set out to heal the Dark Crystal and restore order to the world. I don’t think this series will show us how the Crystal was broken; instead it will focus on how the Skeksis learned to use the crystal for their own greedy purposes. Their secret is revealed and it appears the Gelflings fight to keep that greed from getting out of control.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I suggest you do before the end of the summer. At least to learn about the different species in this world and how they are all connected. As for those who have see it, I won’t spoil anything, But I was very excited to see Fizgig!! I think it was him. It could be Fizgig. Either way, I love that animal! And I couldn’t help but giggle at the end of the teaser. Fans of Chamberlain will understand.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance features the voices of Taron Egerton as Rian, Anya Taylor-Joy as Brea, and Nathalie Emmanuel as Deet. Caitriona Balfe, Natalie Dormer, Theo James, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, and Alicia Vikander also provide voices for Gelfling characters.
I’m so excited! I feel like a kid again! Watch the teaser below.
Louis Leterrier directed the series. Executive producers are Leterrier, Halle Stanford and Lisa Henson, CEO and President of The Jim Henson Company. Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
