The 10-episode fantasy adventure series is a prequel to the 1982 film, The Dark Crystal, and takes place many years before the events of the movie. The series was shot in the U.K., and stars an ensemble of state-of-the-art creatures created by Jim Henson's Creature Shop and Brian Froud, the original film's conceptual designer. Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) serves as the show's executive producer and director.
"The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will combine the art of puppetry perfected by The Jim Henson Company, with Louis' vision, powerful storytelling and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects," said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix. "I can’t wait for families around the world to see how we bring these unique characters to life."
