Jim Henson was by no means glad with the general public notion of puppetry as a children’ medium, and he spent his life making an attempt to push it in as far a path from Sesame Avenue as personal funding would permit. (Yeah, I noticed the identical Defunctland video too). 1982’s The Darkish Crystal is a main instance of Jim’s ambition — on the time, no person actually knew what to make of it.
Over time, the movie turned a cult basic, and since The Jim Henson Firm must lean on the non-Muppet tasks Disney didn’t purchase to outlive, The Darkish Crystal is coming again — within the type of a 10-episode miniseries to premiere on Netflix this summer season.
Not a single Gelfling or Skeksis has been blasphemously computer-rendered….that is all old-school puppetry, dropped at movement by human fingers! After all it will be a misinform say there’s no CGI work on this miniseries in any respect — plenty of the environments look CG, the place they’d have been matte work again within the early 80s.
The Darkish Crystal: Age Of Resistance stars the voices of Taron Egerton (Rocketman), Anya Taylor-Pleasure (The Witch), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Recreation of Thrones) as its central characters, with supporting roles being stuffed out by Mark Hamill, Helena Bonham Carter and Keegan-Michael Key.
The one draw back to this trailer is how lengthy you need to wait to see any extra of it. It’ll take till August 30 for Netflix to place this present up, however we’ll be ready anxiously.
