Netflix released a brand new trailer for their forthcoming fantasy epic The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
For those of us who grew up loving the fantasy The Dark Crystal, it’s pretty exciting to count down the days to the release of Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The new series seems to perfectly capture the mood that made us fall in love with the original and sticks to using Jim Henson puppets as opposed to “upgrading” to CGI, truly making this feel like a return to a world we all loved as kids.
In the newest trailer for the series, we get a better look at what adventures await us in Age of Resistance as we return to the world of Thra.
In this new adventure, the world of Thra is dying. At the heart of Thra lies the Crystal of Truth, but it has become corrupted thanks to the evil of the Skeksis, causing a devastating sickness to spread across Thra.
When a small group of Gelfling named Deet (Nathalie Emmanuel), Rian (Taron Egerton), and Brea (Alice Dinnean) uncover the truth behind the Skeksis deeds, it sparks a rebellion as an epic adventure unfolds as a fight for the fate of Thra begins.
But this isn’t just an exciting, nostalgic take on a childhood classic. In addition to Emmanuel, Egerton, and Dinnean, the cast of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is quite the all-star one.
As Deet, Rian, and Brea light the fires of resistance around Thra, they will come in contact with a wide range of characters like The Collector, All-Maudra, The Myth-Speaker, Maudra Fara, and more, voiced by actors like Awkwakfina, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sigourney Weaver, Lena Headey, Caitriona Balfe, Keegan-Michael Key, Andy Samberg, Jason Isaacs, Simon Pegg, Benedict Wong, and more.
From the looks of this trailer and the mind-blowing cast, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance isn’t just going to be a fun trip down memory lane. It’s going to be an epic, fantasy adventure that will delight longtime Dark Crystal fans and newcomers to the franchise.
You can catch the exciting new series when it premieres only on Netflix on August 30.
