A prequel to Jim Henson’s beloved 1982 puppet film The Dark Crystal, the new Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will pit the Skeksis against the Gelfling like never before, and ahead of the show's August 30th premiere, a new trailer has been released, featuring the almighty power of The Darkening.

Keep an eye on Netflix for the release of all ten episodes of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on August 30th, and revisit the world of Thra in the new trailer below.

"Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects. 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 the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins."
