The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance has wrapped filming after a ten-month shoot in the UK. The series is a collaboration between Netflix and The Jim Henson Company, which will serve as a prequel to the puppet-stuffed fantasy film The Dark Crystal from 1982.
The Knowledge Online, a trusted industry website, shared the news that filming has finished on the show. Post-production work will follow, and you can expect Netflix to start promoting the show in due course.
Directing the show has been Louis Leterrier, who previously brought us The Transporter, Now You See Me, Grimsby, The Incredible Hulk and nine episodes of Tycoon. Jeffrey Addiss, Javier Grillo-Marxuach and Will Matthews have all contributed scripts.
The Jim Henson Creature Shop has led the charge on the puppetry side, with Brian Froud – who conceptually designed the original film – also working on the series. Rita Peruggi is the show’s producer.
We don’t have a release date, a trailer or any real imagery to share from The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance as of yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we start to see promotional materials surfacing.
We’re intrigued to see how this show comes together, and we’ll keep you updated as we hear more about it.
