Netflix’s prequel to the Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal is coming this fall. They released the first trailer yesterday. See it here:
The prequel series will premiere its practical puppeteering work in the midst of the CGI era. The trailer looks fantastic with amazingly designed set pieces, life-like puppets and retro Hollywood aesthetics that paint the picture of a wonderful adventure.
The show will take us back before the original film to discover the origin behind The Darkening. It will reprise its dark yet majestic feel that the film was so popular for. If you are looking for a new and exciting journey through fable and fantasy, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance releases this August on the 30th.
