‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ Premiere Announced on Netflix!

According to EW the premiere of the much anticipated The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has been announced. The ten episode series will be a prequel to the Jim Henson original puppet fantasy film, The Dark Crystalwhich was originally released in 1982. Although it flop on release, both critically and commercially, the film has since found a cult audience, who love it for its immersive world building, astounding practical effects, and unusually dark tone for a Henson production. The film was about the fictional world of Thra, dealing with a conflict between two fantasy races: the good hearted, innocent Gelflings and the dark, sinister, conniving Skeksis.

The new series, a Netflix exclusive, will be set before the original film, dealing with three Gelfings who discover the dark secrets of the Skeksis and ignite a rebellion against the evil creatures. The series will be directed by Louis Leterrier, who has previous helmed Now You See Me, Clash of the Titansand The Incredible HulkThe filmmaker has reported he is determined to make the new series as close to looking like the old film as possible, including using old school puppetry for the characters. The director had to reportedly fight for puppets rather than CGI but is glad that he managed to get the project to use them, as it was very important to him.

Equally impressive is the voice cast for the cast of puppets. These include: Taron Egerton, Ana Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, Eddie Izzard, Mark Strong, Simon Pegg, Jason Isaacs, Natalie Dormer, Alicia Vikander, and Helena Bonham Carter. The shows executive producers include Jim Henson’s daughter, Lisa Henson, who will make sure the vision of the series stays true to her father’s original film.

Below are a series of images released by Netflix as a preview for the upcoming series, all of which look utterly beautiful.

Everything We Know About the ‘Little Fires Everywhere’ Adaptation

The Little Fires Everywhere adaptation is shaping up nicely! The novel is a 2017 release by Celeste Ng and takes place in fictional suburb Shaker Heights, a sleepy neighborhood where everyone plays by the rules and nothing really exciting happens—especially not to Elena Richardson, a more affluent resident. That is, nothing really exciting happens until artist and single mother called Mia Warren bursts into the community with her teenage daughter and rents a house from the Richardsons. She disregards the rules of the community entirely, and drama soon explodes between the two families as the Richardsons clash with the Warrens. It’s a drama full of secrets and fascinating thematic representations of motherhood, masterfully explored through different angles of life.
