Netflix has released its first teaser trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, and we only thought we were excited about this series before.

Set for release on August 30, 2019, the new series is a prequel to Jim Henson’s 1982 film The Dark Crystal, and tells the story of three adventurous Gelfling who discover a dark plan by the Skeksis to corrupt the mysterious crystal and spread darkness throughout the world of Thra.

Rian (Taron Egerton), Brea (Anya Taylor-Joy), and Deet (Nathalie Emmanuel) will lead a rebellion against the Skeksis plan and fight to save the home they love.

The new trailer takes us directly into that world, and it is simply stunning. The sets are gorgeous, and the puppetry, designed by The Jim Henson Company, is perfectly reminiscent of the movie we loved almost four decades ago!

It also gives us our first glimpse at several of the characters including Aughra, voiced by Donna Kimball (The Happytime Murders), who many will remember from the film.

It seems that everything is in place for an epic series! Check out that trailer below and mark your calendars for August 30, 2019 to join The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance!
