    Netflix series: Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (prequel to the Dark Crystal) - August 30, 2019

    I was just browsing around and all I can say is HOLY CRAP!

    I grew up with Disney and the Muppets, and this is making me want to squeal and check on the shelves for our copy of the original. Preview is looking good; Anyone here want to relive a few childhood memories?

    The dark crystal muppets always creeped me the fuck out and they still do. They're uncomfortable to look at.

    Love The Dark Crystal

    I re-watched it about a year ago and I have no idea how I sat through that as a kid.

    Director has me a bit worried though, it's the guy from The Incredible Hulk, Now You See Me (just the first one), and the Clash of the Titans remake....

    Release the Skeksis!

    Also a mention of it being "a mix of puppetry and cgi". Guess it depends what those percentages end up being.

    Also it's the same problem Star Wars prequels have, you know they're all going to die.

    I agree completely. I loved Labyrinth but the Dark Crystal was just uncomfortable for me - and I didn't even see it until I was in my teens.

    This preview doesn't seem so bad though, maybe because of changes in lighting and the way they film things.

    I always thought Emilia Clarke looks like a Gelfling.

    I’ve only watched 3 episodes, but so far this show has exceeded all expectations I could have possibly hoped and more a work of art to such a high degree of quality that I am being constantly amazed at every turn.

    Just watched the first episode and it's seriously gorgeous. The puppets, the sets, the practical effects, they're just fantastic. The voice acting is an awesome 80s throwback and the story seems appropriately dark.

    So I've literally just finished all of The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance and Spent the whole time dumbstruck at the caliber of the production. Can't imagine how much work went into crafting all these puppets, sets and practical effects and then melding it all pretty flawlessly with CG. Truly inspiring work! 10/10 I hope we get a season 2.

    https://www.netflix.com/title/80238013 Netflix have released the making of first season. It’s a long documentary. My favorite segment was the test footage they used to green-light the series and how they hated CGI characters mixed with puppets.
