If you enjoyed the original 1982 The Dark Crystal film, you will probably enjoy this series.I remember being only 7 years old when I watched this loving it. Jim Henson ruled the roost in children’s entertainment and this was very dark in its tone. The big difference from the original film and this 10 part series, the quality of the puppeteering will be more advanced.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will launch globally on Netflix in 2019.
