First Look of Official Teaser ‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ on Netflix + Voice Cast & Story Description Are Revealed!

Welcome, Netflix fans!

I hope you all are having a magnificent day!

Today, we have got some amazing news for you all. If you are Dark Crystal fans, I am sure you have heard of the franchise a long time ago. It is confirmed that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is getting a prequel series, courtesy of Netflix. If anyone isn’t familiar with Dark Crystal, go and watch it. 

It is a spectacular movie. 

Genuinely, it’s fantastic. 

The movie is very heartfelt and it’s really pleasant to watch with some fantastic puppetry. Now, Netflix is producing a Dark Crystal prequel series and there hasn’t been any attraction for a very long time. There has been some behind the scenes images of Skeksis revealed, not too long ago.

New Images of 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance'

Courtesy of See What's Next on Twitter, where I found this piece of information, we have an incredible list of not only the voice actors, but new gorgeous images. 

All of the new images and voice actors are all official from the Netflix series. 

A Modern-Day Gelfling

Just looking at this puppetry work here looks absolutely incredible. It’s very much in line with the former puppets of the original movie. I will say that they’ve really modernized this image. Although it's a little bit uncanny valley, they look stunning. These new images look quite realistic as well, in terms of how they look and the detail involved. 

This image looks genuinely superb!

Let’s get to the star-studded voice cast!

The Voice Cast

In terms of the voice cast, this list is very big. 

Netflix has essentially hide everyone you can imagine. When it comes to the leading casts, we’ve got Taron Egerton from Kingsley. I’m sure you guys know Anya Taylor Joy from The Witch. We got Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones. She will be playing as one of the three Gelfling heroes. If you guys remember the first movie, you’ll know what a Gelfling is.

Anyways, there is more.

We’ve got more Gelfling characters. 

Caitriona Balfe from the Outlander. We have Helena Bonham-Carter from so many movies, which is completely insane. We also have Harris Dickinson, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Toby Jones, Shazad Latif, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, and Alicia Vikander.

Here is the voice cast of The Skeksis & Mystics!

We have Mark Hamill, Harvey Fierstein, Ralph Ineson, Jason Isaacs, Keegan-Michael Key, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Simon Pegg, and Andy Samberg.

This is crazy!

Netflix's Description of the Three Gelfling Heroes

We also have a statement from Netflix to match the stunning Gelflings of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

The description reads as follows: 

“Our heroes hail from 3 of the 7 Gelfling clans. Brea, from the noble Vapra who live in the Gelfling capital city, Rian, a Crystal Castle guard from the fierce Stonewood clan, and, Deet of the cave-dwelling Grottans who never set foot above ground.”

I am proud to say that this prequel film may be one of the finest casts assembled from the world’s favorite TV shows and movies. I am even more excited for fans to come back and watch the stunning world of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. 

This is the perfect movie for new viewers to discover the world for the very first time.

What’s more?!

Story Synopsis

We have the first official story description, which reveals quite a lot. 

The story description reads as follows: 

“The world of Thra is dying. The crystal of truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power, but it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis and a sickness spreads across the land. When three gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of these Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.”

To top it all off, Aughra will be voiced by Donna Kimball.

There you have it.

You can notice the excitement through my writing. I am really looking forward to this prequel movie. This looks absolutely fantastic!! This movie will be a 10 episodes series. “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” series will be released next year in 2019.

I know, there is a lot of information to absorb all at once.

Stay up to date on all the world of entertainment, pop culture, and movie news!
