The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance starring Taron Egerton premieres on Netflix at midnight PT tonight! Watch all 10 episodes on Friday, Aug. 30!

The wait is almost over to watch The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix! The Netflix original prequel to Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal, which premiered in 1982, hits the streaming service around the world at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, Aug. 30.

If you stay up late Thursday night (in the US), you can start watching the new series as soon as it’s available to stream on Netflix. For all you in the UK, you can start watching just after 8 a.m. GMT on Friday.

According to Lisa Henson, the executive producer of the series, at San Diego Comic-Con, Age of Resistance has been in the works at Netflix for about five years. Some have been waiting a lot longer than that to watch more content set in the world of Thra after watching Henson’s film in the 1980s. The Dark Crystal is one of the most well-known fantasy movies of all time, and it’s available to stream on Netflix right now. Check it out before the prequel series hits Netflix!

The main characters in Age of Resistance are voiced by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helena Bonham Carter, Alicia Vikander, Keegan-Michael Key, Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Simon Pegg, Jason Isaacs, Benedict Wong, Andy Samberg, and more. It’s an outstanding voice cast! Louis Leterrier directed the series.

The series follows three Gelflings who discover a dark, dark secret in Thra. They set out on a quest to start a rebellion and defeat the evil Skeksis. It’s set many years before the events of the film.

Even if you haven’t seen The Dark Crystal, this series is worth watching for a few reasons. First of all, we don’t see fantasy like this on Netflix often. If you’re a fan of the genre, you need to watch to give Netflix the signal to make more fantasy.

Along with that, the series is an achievement in animation and puppets. That’s right, all those characters are puppets! The show looks beautiful, so from a technical perspective, this show is a must-watch!

We highly recommend you check out The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Netflix. It’s going to be a great series!
