It’s now been over two years since we first found out about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a live-action prequel to Jim Henson‘s 1982 puppet feature The Dark Crystal.
We’ve since seen a teaser trailer and a featurette for the prequel series. And now, with just a couple of weeks left before the first season arrives, a final trailer has been released.
You can find more info on The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance and check out the trailer below.
Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new epic story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects.
The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land.
