Netflix Announces The Dark Crystal Prequel Series

A beloved classic from the ’80s marks its return as Netflix has announced they will be the home for The Jim Henson Company’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

The 10-episode fantasy adventure series serves as a prequel to the groundbreaking 1982 fan favorite The Dark Crystal, and takes place many years before the events of the film. The series will be shot in the U.K., and will star an ensemble of fantastical, state-of-the-art creatures created by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Brian Froud, the original feature’s conceptual designer.

“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will combine the art of puppetry perfected by The Jim Henson Company, with Louis’ vision, powerful storytelling and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. “I can’t wait for families around the world to see how we bring these unique characters to life.”

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.

Feature film director Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series and direct.

“Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of The Dark Crystal and has an incredible creative vision for the series. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life,” said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. “Netflix has a deep respect for my father’s original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in The Dark Crystal story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world.”

With this new project, I hope they restore the original Dark Crystal film & release a new features packed special edition Blu-ray, just like what they did with the Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray.....

Netflix’s Dark Crystal Prequel Series Reveals Characters and Voice Cast

The upcoming prequel series The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance has revealed its voice cast, as well as a look at some of its unique characters ahead of its global premiere in 2019. It will also feature the groundbreaking puppeteering of The Jim Henson Company, who created the all-puppet cast of the original film.

The Age of Resistance takes place before the events in 1982’s The Dark Crystal, and tells a new epic story, set many years before the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.

The voice cast will be led by Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch, Glass), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), as three Gelfling heroes Rian, Brea and Deet, respectively. Other voice actors slated to lend their voices include Helena Bonham-Carter (The Crown), Eddie Izzard (Ocean’s 13), Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina).

“It is humbling to see so many truly gifted actors join The Dark Crystal universe by adding their voices to Age of Resistance.  As with the original film, we are now adding a voice cast of the highest caliber that will provide textures and range to the puppetry performances that are the heart of the series.  It is thrilling to see this assembled team of artists, puppeteers and now voice actors, many inspired by my father’s original film, work together to realize this unique world – through performance and craft – at a scale that is rarely seen today,” said Linda Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company.

Feature film director Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) will executive produce the series as well as direct. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will be a Netflix original series produced by The Jim Henson Company and executive produced by Letterier, Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford. Longtime Henson collaborator Rita Peruggi will serve as producer and Henson’s Blanca Lista will serve as a co-executive producer. Leading the writing are co-executive producers Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews (Life in a Year), and Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost, The 100).
