Additional Voices and Character Images Released for Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance Lena Headey

We’re only about two months away from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, my most highly-anticipated streaming series of the summer, and today Netflix released additional cast voices (including Lena Headey and Benedict Wong, among others) and character images for all 32 main characters.

Today Netflix announced additional voices for the epic prequel series to the iconic 1982 Jim Henson film, The Dark Crystal. Joining the previously announced cast members are Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Awkwafina, Sigourney Weaver, Hannah John-Kamen, and Dave Goelz.

We also have character images for all 32 main characters (except Sigourney Weaver, whose character, The Myth-Speaker, is voice only, presumably the narrator). Check the galleries below!

Dinnean, Gold, Sterenberg, and Yerrid are the puppeteers for the characters they voice.

“I am so grateful to this dedicated and gifted ensemble who has so beautifully voiced the characters performed by our puppeteers. Gathering such highly skilled performers was only possible because of their love and respect for Jim Henson’s work and his ongoing legacy,” said Louis Leterrier, Director and Executive Producer for the series.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance premieres August 30 on Netflix. The series will consist of ten one-hour episodes.
