Thra is brimming with beautifully crafted puppets in the first trailer for Netflix’s original series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
Generation X adults who grew up having been enthralled or terrified by Jim Henson’s ambitious 1982 film are in for a treat. The AoR trailer sets a prequel story with many recognizable characters, locations, and of course surprises.
One of the biggest reveals aren’t a Skesis vehicle shuttling Gelflings somewhere. Or the return of Chamberlain and his infamous “Mmmm”.
A close look at the slightly altered logo when the trailer concludes reveals a “I” built into the “C”. That likely signifies this is the first chapter or season and additional episodes are forthcoming.
Noticeably absent from the AoR trailer, but confirmed per the cast list, are the Mystics. Netflix has chosen to keep the lumbering creatures’ appearance tightly under wraps.
All 10 one-hour episodes of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will arrive August 30th exclusively on Netflix.
