Its be said that even after the original Dark Crystal film was released, that The Jim Henson company had worked for 12 years to get put a sequel in play. With that said after all these years it seems that the Jim Henson team figured the smart play would be to take it to Netflix and Turing said sequel into a series/ prequel.
'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' series will use puppetry alongside “cutting edge visual effects” while following three of the diminutive Gelflings as they fight to save their planet Thra from the Skeksis, Netflix said.
Check out the featurette teaser narrated by the man himself, Jim henson:
“It is humbling to see so many truly gifted actors join ‘The Dark Crystal’universe by adding their voices to ‘Age of Resistance,’" as the series is known, added Lisa Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company, and eldest daughter of the late puppeteer.
Taron Egerton of “Kingsman,” Nathalie Emmanuel of “Game of Thrones” and Anya Taylor-Joy of “Split” will voice the Gelflings, while Mark Hamill, Michael Key, Fierstein and Pegg will voice the Skekis and wizard-like Mystics.
The series, which will be released next year, will also feature Helena Bonham Carter, Andy Samberg and Eddie Izzard, among others.
