MANILA, Philippines – The teaser trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is out, and by the looks of it, the upcoming series is going to be stunning.
The high fantasy series is a prequel to Jim Henson’s iconic puppet-animated 1982 film, The Dark Crystal. Like the film, it uses classic puppetry and merges it with cutting-edge visual effects to bring the story to life.
Set years before the events of the movie, the series is set in the dying world of Thra, which is lorded over by an evil species called the Skeksis.
The story follows Rian, Brea, and Deet – 3 members of the elf-like race of Gelflings – who uncover the Skeksis’ secrets and go on an adventure to fight for their planet.
The series features the voice talents of Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nathalie Emmanuel as the 3 Gelflings, along with a star-studded supporting cast including the likes of Catriona Balfe, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Dormer, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Alicia Vikander, Mark Hamill, Jason Isaacs, and Andy Samberg.
