One of the more interesting projects Netflix is funding is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the prequel series to the classic 1982 film The Dark Crystal. Utilizing puppetry along with cutting edge visual effects, the story looks to be just as intense as the original dark fantasy film was.
The world of Thra is dying. At the heart of it, the Crystal of Truth, a source of untold power, is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. Three Gelflings uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis and an adventure will unfold as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.
Today, new photos have been released for the show giving a look at the three main Gelfling characters and, in the process, revealed that the voice actors for them are surprisingly well-known enough. Kingsman star Taron Egerton is voicing Rian, Split star Anya Taylor-Joy is voicing Brea, Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel is voicing Deet – the trio of Gelflings. Check them out below:
In addition, actors Helena Bonham-Carter, Eddie Izzard, Andy Samberg, and Alicia Vikander have been confirmed to lend their voices to characters as well. No premiere date has been given for the ten-episode first season yet. Stay tuned!
