‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ Character Guide: Meet the Cast of the New Prequel Series
Ahead of its late summer premiere, Netflix has revealed even more voice actors for their highly anticipated prequel series based on Jim Henson’s cult classic film The Dark Crystal. They also shared 32 new images of the (puppet) cast, so you can start to familiarize yourself with a whole new batch of Gelfling and Skeksis ahead of time.
The new voices include Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Awkwafina, Sigourney Weaver, Hannah John-Kamen, and Dave Goelz. Here’s the series official synopsis:
Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance runs ten one-hour episodes and premieres on Netflix on Friday, August 30, 2019. Here is the full main cast of the show. (I love Andy Samberg’s character for some reason.)
