Watch the New Trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Based on the Jim Henson's 1982 cult classic film, The Dark Crystal, Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story.

"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. Children of the '80s will swim in nostalgia with this epic fantasy adventure while a new generation will be introduced to the world of Thra. In this prequel series, the world of Thra is dying.

When three Gelfling heroes - voiced by Rocketman star Taron Egerton, Game of Thrones' Nathalie Emmanuel and Witch actress Anya Taylor-Joy - uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, they form a resistance and prepare for an epic battle for the planet.

If you need to set a reminder, "The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance" releases on Netflix on August 30th. But all that changes once the Skeksis corrupt the Crystal of Truth, bringing about a destructive epochal shift known as The Darkening.

More than anything, this new Age of Resistance trailer really sells the high stakes and even higher adventure, the likes of which we've never seen done with puppets and-TBH!-haven't really seen done on Netflix! "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".

The series also features the voices of Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Awkwafina, Sigourney Weaver, Keegan-Michael Key, Helena Bonham Carter, and Simon Pegg. The show's executive producers are Leterrier, Halle Stanford, and Jim Henson's daughter, Lisa Henson.
