Four new first look photos are out from “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” the upcoming Netflix series which serves as a prequel to the classic 1982 film “The Dark Crystal” by Jim Henson.
Empire Magazine (via Bloody Disgusting) posted the shots from the ten-episode fantasy adventure series which takes place many years before the events of the film and follows an ensemble of fantastical, state-of-the-art creatures.
Blending classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects, the story begins as the world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land.
When three Gelfling (Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel) uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.
Helena Bonham-Carter, Eddie Izzard, Andy Samberg, Alicia Vikander, Natalie Dormer, Mark Strong, Mark Hamill, Harvey Fierstein, Jason Isaacs, Simon Pegg, Caitriona Balfe, Keegan-Michael Key, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Toby Jones, Theo James, Natalie Dormer, Harris Dickinson, Ralph Ineson and Shazad Latif all lend their voices to the project.
