Netflix’s “Dark Crystal” Prequel Series Trailer

Netflixs Dark Crystal Prequel Series Trailer

Netflix has released the first 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 Hamil, Keegan-Michael Key, Andy Samberg and many more.

Leterrier has reportedly insisted that 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 series will premiere on Netflix on August 30th.
