Netflix has released a new trailer for Louis Leterrier's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The hour-long, 10 episodes, series arrives on the streaming service August 30th, 2019. There is a lot of anticipation for this one, Junkies. I myself interviewed Brian Henson 10 years ago and asked about when we would get a chance to go back to the world of Thra. Let's hope it is a worthwhile journey. #AFJ4LIFE
Synopsis: Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of 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.
