Jim Henson fans have been waiting a long time for this, but after nearly 40 years, his 1982 fantasy epic The Dark Crystal is finally about to make its triumphant return to the screen. This isn’t the long-rumoured sequel but rather a brand new 10-episode prequel series set many years before the events of the movie. Directed by Louis Leterrier (The Transporter, The Incredible Hulk), the show mixes puppetry with digital effects, resulting in a visual style that looks a little cleaner and less tactile but still gorgeous. With a voice cast that includes Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helena Bonham Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Toby Jones, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Alicia Vikander, Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, Jason Isaacs, Keegan-Michael Key, Simon Pegg and Andy Samberg, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance arrives on Aug. 30th. Check out the first trailer after the jump and see what you think.
