A teaser trailer for the new Netflix series, Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance
For Jim Henson, creator of the Muppets, the feature film Dark Crystal was a passion project.
It’s the tale of a world divided between good and evil creatures whose war has destroyed the environment and almost driven the humanoid Gelflings to extinction. Now Netflix has just announced a prequel series, Dark Crystal: The Resistance, which tells the backstory of the evil Skeksis’ rise to power and a group of brave Gelflings who challenge their reign.
The team behind the series is promising. The Resistance is executive produced and directed by Louis Leterrier, who started his career working with Luc Besson on the Transporter movies and later helmed The Incredible Hulk and Clash of the Titans. Plus, the writing team includes fan favorite Javi Grillo-Marxuach (Middleman, The 100), which is great news.

Grillo-Marxuach is known for blending humor into dark scenarios, and that will be the perfect touch for the Dark Crystal universe.

Anyone who saw the original film knows it wasn’t afraid to be silly despite its epic sweep.
