Netflix has released the first teaser for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the television prequel to Jim Henson’s iconic 1982 fantasy film. Directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Now You See Me) and with a cast including Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham Carter, and Taron Egerton, the series follows three Gelflings trying to stop “the Darkening.”
Most notably, Age of Resistance utilizes puppets, as did its forebear, rather than going full CGI. Voicing these puppets is an impressive cast that further includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Eddie Izzard, Mark Strong, Toby Jones, Natalie Dormer, and many more. Watch the epic teaser:
The official summary:
The journey begins as darkness rises. Join three Gelfling heroes on an epic quest to save their world.
The 10-episode first season of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance premieres on Netflix on Friday, August 30.
