Behold. The age of resistance is nearly upon us. It’s been decades since audiences have been graced with the original Dark Crystal film. While a bit unsettling in terms of its creature work, the film has remained a staple of fantasy filmmaking — if nothing else, because there weren’t very many great instances of high fantasy movies at the time.

It’s been many years since then, and over the past year or so, fans of the original have waited patiently as the Jim Henson Company and Netflix crafted together a whole new limited series adventure for the streaming service.

Below is the new trailer for the series:

Below is the official synopsis for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance:

“Light the fires of resistance! Join Deet, Rian and Brea on an epic quest to find hope in darkness, save Thra, and reveal their destiny. Nothing will ever be the same.”

On the whole, the trailer does a lot to get someone like me excited for the film. I don’t 100% understand what’s going on, but I understand the basic idea of the stakes, as well as the adventure that will occur as a result.

But what do you think of the new trailer? Let us know your thoughts down below!

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance drops on Netflix on August 30, 2019.
