The beloved 80s classic from Jim Henson is making a comeback via Netflix.
From the looks of the teaser, Jim Henson is keeping it old school with puppetry from The Jim Henson Company – however there will reportedly be ‘a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects’ too.
The fantasy adventure series, titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, will consist of ten episodes.
According to Comingsoon.net, “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.”
Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series and direct.
Only downside is they’re only starting to shoot in the UK now, so it’ll be a while yet before it hits the streaming service.
Here’s the teaser:
