Netflix has dropped a gorgeous new trailer for the prequel series “The Dark Crystal”.
The new look at the series furthers the story of the Gelflings as they begin to question the power of the evil Skeksis regime. “The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance” is set before the events of Jim Henson’s 1982 film, “The Dark Crystal”, which sees the Gelfling Jen use the power of the Mystics to overthrow the corrupt Skeksis. The 10-episode Netflix series will follow three Gelflings (voiced by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel) who discover the horrifying secret to the Skeksis’ power.
“Everything the Skeksis have ever told us was a lie,” Egerton’s Rian says in the trailer.
The series also features the voices of Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Awkwafina, Sigourney Weaver, Keegan-Michael Key, Helena Bonham Carter, and Simon Pegg.
“The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance” arrives on Netflix on August 30.
