Netflix has released the full-length (and final) trailer for its upcoming prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. The trailer sees Deet, Rian and Brea embark on their journey to save Thra from the threat of the Skeksis.
Thirty-seven years after Jim Henson and Frank Oz’s The Dark Crystal opened in theaters, the cult fantasy property is getting a new lease on life thanks to Age of Resistance.
