Labyrinth gets all the press thanks to David Bowie‘s package, but the true Jim Henson fantasy jam has always been The Dark Crystal, a film that many consider his masterpiece and that stars a grand total of 0 human characters. Incredibly, it’s getting a prequel series on Netflix, and it would appear from its new teaser that The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will follow in the film’s belated footsteps with real puppets and practical effects.
That’s great news for fans of The Dark Crystal, but it’s also good news for anyone who misses the glorious golden age of 1980s practical effects. The teaser for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance focuses on Henson himself, though, talking about the original film, before giving viewers a brief glimpse of an actual shot from the prequel.
There’s no premiere date yet for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, but you can see the teaser for the show below, and it’s supposed to hit Netflix sometime before the year is out.
