The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a prequel to Jim Henson's classic 1982 film The Dark Crystal, and it will honor the original by using all puppetry instead of computer animation. From everything we've seen so far, including the new photos below, that throwback approach is paying off, because it seems to be capturing everything that made the film such a lasting aesthetic delight.
The series returns to the world of Thra for a new adventures, as three Gelfling discover the disturbing truth of the Skeksis' power and embark on a journey of world-changing rebellion. The voice cast list for the series is absolutely stacked with A-listers, too.

Also portraying Gelfling characters in the series are Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham-Carter, Harris Dickinson, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Toby Jones, Shazad Latif, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, and Alicia Vikander.
