The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance series is coming to Netflix this month and a new trailer reveals more details on the Gelflings’ plans to unite and save Thra from power-hungry overlords.
Netflix released the new Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance trailer on Tuesday, where fans had a sneak peek of the show’s main characters: Deet, Rian and Brea, and why they’re leading a rebellion against the wicked Skeksis, vulture-like creatures that want to destroy all they know. The 10-episode series is based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s 1982 feature film, and tells a story set many years before the events of this movie with classic puppetry and visual effects.
The Crystal of Truth is the source of all life in the world of Thra and unfortunately, the Skeksis have corrupted it. Now, the Gelflings and other inhabitants of Thra could die from the Darkening. It is up to the trio to bring everyone together to protect their universe and reverse the damage from the Skeksis’ evil scheme.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which stars Alice Dinnean, Taron Egerton, and Nathalie Emmanuel, will premiere on Netflix on Aug. 30.
