Following some new photos yesterday, more stills have cropped up along with confirmed news of an August 30th launch date for “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” Netflix’s upcoming prequel series to the iconic 1982 Jim Henson fantasy film.
Louis Leterrier helms the ten-episode fantasy adventure series blends classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects in a story that begins as the world of Thra is dying.

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.
