Fans of Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 fantasy The Dark Crystal are in for a shocking treat. Not only is Netflix plotting a ten-episode prequel series to explore the Age of Resistance, but the first teaser is already here!
Before there was David Bowie and David Bowie’s extremely tight pants in 1986’s Labyrinth, there were Jen and Kira and the planet Thra in The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s groundbreaking animatronic fantasy film. While the movie was in production, Henson and Oz discussed plans for a sequel that never came to fruition. Decades later, Henson and his wife drafted a script from his recalled conversations with his co-director, and titled it The Power of the Dark Crystal. The movie was never made, but fans will get to see it after all in comic book form from BOOM! Studios.
