When I was a child, the viewing of THE DARK CRYSTAL movie was so amazing, it broke my brain. Before CGI and control shifting face apps, movie makers used animatronics and puppetry for the best fantasy characters. Nobody did it better than Jim Henson and Frank Oz, the forces behind all things MUPPETS. Unlike the kind faces found on SESAME STREET, the characters and storyline of THE DARK CRYSTAL was much darker than most kids and some kids were ready for in 1982, but a cult following was born, which has been clamoring for more and it’s NETFLIX to the rescue.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance the series will premiere on August 30, 2019, and there will be 10 episodes.
