The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Teaser Trailer Released!
Netflix has released a teaser trailer to their new series The Dark Crystal, Age of Resistance! The 10-episode series is a prequel set many years before the events of the 1982 classic Jim Henson movie, The Dark Crystal.
Netflix has indicated that the plot of the series revolves around three young Gelflings inspiring a rebellion against the evil emperor Skeksis after learning a terrifying secret about the source of his power. They have further announced an amazing cast of voice actors for the series, which includes: Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helena Bonham-Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Alicia Vikander, Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill and Simon Pegg are joining the cast as Gelflings, Skeksis, and Mystics, along with several others
The trailer is shot like a documentary of the making of original 1982 film, complete with sound bites of Jim Henson talking about the production. It quickly turns to, what appears to be, a behind the scenes look at the new series production. Lastly, we get a frightening look at the Scientist skekTek, complete with mechanical eye.
I for one am truly excited for the return of this property. There are few movies from my childhood that have captured my imagination while at the same time giving me frighning nightmares. Anyone remember Chamberlain and his whimpering as he emerged from the darkness of a cave? Still gives me chills. The Skeksis are truly some of the scariest villains in the history of cinema.
Netflix has not yet provided a release date for this series as of yet. We will keep you informed as updates come available.
