Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new epic 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.
Our heroes hail from 3 of the 7 Gelfling clans. Brea, from the noble Vapra who live in the Gelfling capital city, Rian, a Crystal Castle guard from the fierce Stonewood clan, and, Deet of the cave-dwelling Grottans who never set foot above ground. https://t.co/M6akVGH9On
