Netflix is bringing back some nostalgia in a very big way. During their San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel, they showed off the newest trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
The new television series promises to honor the Jim Henson‘s film while also utilizing VFX technology. Now the streaming service has released a behind-the-scenes look plus a trailer. Check it out below.
We first found out about a prequel to Jim Henson‘s 1982 classic The Dark Crystal coming to Netflix two years ago. Now the first trailer for the series, titled The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, has been released online.
The prequel alone was already exciting, but the series also features an insane voice cast led by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nathalie Emmanuel, who play three Gelfling heroes named Rian, Brea, and Deet.
You can find more info on the show, see the rest of the crazy cast, and of course check out the first trailer below.

Thursday night, 11.5 million people tuned in to NBC’s 3rd live show, The Wiz Live!, making it the most sucessful one yet.
And I know why.
The story of a young lost girl who journeys through a magical land, just trying to find her way back home, is timeless. Set to the same funky music of the original 1975 Broadway musical, but also keeping one of the songs from the 1978 movie starring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, this rendition was a delight from start to finish. It also trended during the entire broadcast, thanks to some serious live tweeting.
