The Dark Crystal Prequel Series - Age of Resistance

Netflix is reviving a cult favorite for many children of the 1980s in the form of the prequel series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The series serves as a follow-up to Jim Henson’s dark fantasy adventure The Dark Crystal from 1982, which featured some extremely impressive and immersive puppet work and production design. But don’t worry if you’ve never seen the original movie – this series is set long before the events of The Dark Crystal, telling a new epic story.

Netflix has revealed the first photos from the Dark Crystal series, which show a loyal recreation of the Gelfling characters from the first movie. Plus, the voice cast has also been announced, including Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones) in the lead roles, with voices like Mark Hamill, Mark Strong, Simon Pegg, Natalie Dormer, Gugu Mbatha-Raw filling out the cast.

robin hood featurette

If the trailers for the new Robin Hood have done little to convince you to check out the film, this new featurette might change that. This behind-the-scenes video shows star Taron Egerton training like mad to become the best archer he can be. I had assumed the bulk of the archery in the new flick would be CGI-based, since that’s the way things go now. But if this video is to be believed, a lot of the arrow-slinging is the real deal, and it’s mighty impressive. Watch the Robin Hood featurette below.
