Watch Teaser For Netflix’s Dark Crystal Prequel, The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance
If Netflix is known for something, it’s the fact that the streaming service has been able to save and revive several cancelled shows that regular networks have dropped. They did so for series like Arrested Development, Gilmore Girls, and Full House — now they have their eyes set on a prequel for Jim Henson’s classic Dark Crystal.
The original movie was such a visual marvel, and this prequel promises to utilize the same puppetry and practical effects that the Jim Henson Company is known for. Besides the Muppets and Sesame Street, Jim Henson movies always promise stunning characters, and like the teaser suggests, Henson himself was probably most proud of his work on The Dark Crystal.
So far, the teaser is simply a teaser, and we have no idea as to the story that Age of Resistance will take us. The fans are pretty psyched for the series though, and between this and the announcement of the Witcher series, Netflix has been scoring gold with several fantasy lovers.
The series will come in ten parts and will be helmed by Now You See Me’s Louis Leterrier. All the special effects will also be provided for by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Brian Foud, the original conceptual designer for the original Dark Crystal.
So far, no release date has been announced, but the series starts shooting this year.
