A thousand years ago, this land was green and good — until the Crystal cracked. So began the story of The Dark Crystal, the masterpiece fairy tale by Jim Henson. 37 years later, the events that led to the original film are being shown in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, created with live-action puppetry and computer-generated visual effects. The effect is stunning, and perfectly captures the world created in the first film. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance premieres August 30, 2019 on Netflix.
