In case you missed it, last week it was announced that The Jim Henson Company and Netflix would be continuing their partnership with a 10 episode Dark Crystal prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
Here is the official press release:
It's obvious the Henson Company wants to do right by fans and stay true to the tone of the original. Below is a special message series director Louis Leterrier released to fans: (via The Dark Crystal's official website)
With this announcement, and all the recent comic releases you may be wondering when exactly Age of Resistance takes place.
As you can see, according to the official Dark Crystal site, Age of Resistance takes place between J.M. Lee's novel Shadows of the Dark Crystal and the Legends of the Dark Crystal manga series.
Though no release date has yet been given, the series is in production now and starts shooting this fall.
With the 35th anniversary of original movie this year, the prequel series in production, monthly installments of the sequel comic, and The Ultimate Visual History coming out this fall, it'll be hard to resist the land of Thra this year!
