Netflix Is Making a Prequel Series to The Dark Crystal

Netflix is developing a prequel series to Jim Henson’s 1982 fantasy film, The Dark Crystal.

Titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, this 10-episode prequel series takes place many years before the film and follows the story of three Gelfling who, after discovering the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, set out on a journey to save the world of Thra. The show will feature creatures created by Brian Froud, the original film’s creature designer, and Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.
