The Dark Crystal Prequel Series Coming To Netflix

Prepare for a return trip to the world of The Dark Crystal.

Netflix announced that a new 10-episode prequel series called Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is in the works, according to Variety. Check out a preview above.

Based on Jim Henson's 1982 classic, the new series will return to the magical world of Thra where three Gelfling discover the terrifying secret behind the power of the Skeksis. The trio embark upon an epic journey to "ignite the fires of rebellion" and save their world.

Now You See Me director Louis Leterrier will executive produce and direct for The Jim Henson Company. 

"Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of The Dark Crystal and has an incredible creative vision for the series," said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. "He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life. Netflix has a deep respect for my father's original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in The Dark Crystal story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world."

The original movie, which the late Henson co-directed with Frank Oz, grossed more than $40 million on a $16 million budget. It was one of only three feature films that Henson directed, along with The Great Muppet Caper and Labyrinth.
