Just a few weeks from its release, Netflix's The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance arrives with a deeper look at the world of Thra. The fans are treated with a plot-focused and action-packed trailer which gives justice to Jim Henson's 1982 classic.
While previous teasers showed off the planet of Thra and the new characters (Taron Egerton's Rian, Anya Taylor-Joy's Brea, and Nathalie Emmanuel's Deet), The new footage dives right into the plot, including the Gelfling and Skeksis forces arming themselves and preparing for battle.
The show takes place before the events of Henson's 1982 film. The Gelflings, Deet, Rian and Brea find out that the Skeksis have been lying about what happened to the Crystal of Truth, thus starting a rebellion against the Skeksis.
As evidenced by the trailer, the new series stays faithful to the tone of Henson's adult-themed streak - blending high stakes adventure with emotional depth and an undercurrent of violence and darkness.
