Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s 1982 classic The Dark Crystal didn’t quite get hit by the reboot bug, but rather will now be a series on Netflix called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
This is also following news of a new The Dark Crystal comic called The Power of the Dark Crystal, which was revealed last year. The best part of the return is that the series’s creatures won’t be CGI, but in fact puppets, much like the original.
The ten episode series is, however, essentially a prequel and will feature brand new “state of the art creatures” fresh out of Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Brian Froud, the conceptual designer behind The Dark Crystal. Shooting is set to begin this Fall with Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk) spearheading the project.
