Netflix has finally released the official full trailer for the highly anticipated “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” the ten-episode prequel series to Jim Henson’s innovative, ambitious and dark 1982 feature “The Dark Crystal”.
Directed by Louis Leterrier, the series will explore the world of Henson’s fantasy film and will feature the voices of Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel in the leads alongside Helena Bonham Carter, Mark Hamill, Sigourney Weaver, Alicia Vikander, Lena Headey, Eddie Izzard, Awkwafina, Keegan-Michael Key, Andy Samberg, Simon Pegg and many more.
The story returns to the world of Thra where 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 series will be based on puppetry, only using green screen technology to remove the puppeteers and for some digital mattes and set extensions – resulting in a return to old-school practical effects as much as possible.
“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” series will premiere on Netflix on August 30th.
