Netflix has been sharing beautiful promotional images for the upcoming series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. With the premiere a couple of months away, the newly released first teaser trailer showcases the imagery in motion, and frankly, it is the most stunning look at planet Thra yet.

We have been covering news about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on the website. You can tell we’re excited to watch the 10-episode prequel series when it debuts on Netflix come August 30, 2019.

Here’s the official logline:

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.

Do watch the stunning teaser trailer!

I’m so glad the upcoming series has made use of puppets and animatronics instead of going all CGI. Such a decision has allowed the series to keep the original movie’s look and nostalgia. Also, I think, people who haven’t watched the 1982 film might be interested in checking out this series because of how amazing it looks and the stellar voice cast it boasts.

Taron Egerton is Rian, Anya Taylor-Joy is Brea, and Nathalie Emmanuel is Deet. The cast also features Mark Hamill, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Simon Pegg, Andy Samberg, Mark Strong, Alicia Vikander, Toby Jones, Shazad Latif, Theo James, Caitriona Balfe, Jason Isaacs, and Keegan-Michael Key.
