We’ve been telling you about The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance since it was first announced. Each new bit of information inspires a thirst to learn more, and so here we are with the latest on this production: recently, Netflix announced the voice cast, and the characters that they’ll be portraying in the prequel series. We’re pleased to bring you that information, as well as photos of the characters that will be seen in the series

It Launches August 30
Series director, Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk) worked tirelessly on this series, beginning his work days at 12:30 AM and finishing at 10:00 PM. His goal was to bring a series that would not disappoint the fans of the 1983 original, directed by the late Jim Henson and Frank Oz. From what we’ve seen from the trailer, and from these photos, we feel very strongly that fans will not be disappointed.
Incidentally, while you are waiting for the series to begin on August 30th, you can watch the original film on Netflix. So, if it has been awhile since you’ve seen the classic, or if you’ve never seen the film, now’s your chance.
