News & Interviews for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance: Season 1
It's the bewitching and immersive experience that high fantasy fans have been waiting for.
Understand: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is never anything less than impressive... But in entrusting so much of the story to puppets incapable of adequately executing its emotional demands, the series winds up feeling strangely empty.
A beauty with a fully realized world which seems to know where it's going and how to get there.
One of the all-time great fantasy epics, as well as the masterwork of puppetry most closely aligned with Jim Henson's humanistic philosophy.
"Age of Resistance" is far more busily and intricately plotted than the original, with many more characters and deeper characterization.
While the franchise could have fallen foul to the series, the company have created a spectacular 10-hour show that has cemented Jim Henson's legacy bringing magic back to our screens and has once again landed puppetry a firm place on the map.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance's impeccable production and endearing characters create a surprising amount of investment in its story about puppets. That full-throated commitment and imagination is a winning combination.
The voice acting is provided by an astounding line-up. Stand-out performances from Nathalie Emmanuel as the sweet and brave Deet, and Simon Pegg as the conniving Chamberlain, are a match for the brilliance of the puppeteers' acting.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is a visual delight and its rapturous, yet accessible, storyline will be satisfying for fans of the film as well as newcomers who don't know a Fizzgig from a Landstrider.
The show inspires hope and moments of pure elation, and yet, for anyone who has seen the film, a sense of dread, foreboding and helplessness that events can only go one way dampen the mood.
Audience Reviews for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance: Season 1
Mar 23, 2021SUCH a good show! The puppetry and set work was beautiful! VERY disappointed Netflix didn't renew. Hopefully it gets brought back by Disney!
Feb 07, 2021I truly enjoyed the series, it was amazing. I will say it hard having so much info coming at you at first; I almost stopped watching. I am so glad I continued on, it was magical. You forgot they were puppets as you were drawled deeper into the story. I'm 70, this series took me into a place of magic and wonder. I had to watch it a second time to caught all the small details; I may do a third... I hope they do a second season on this; I wish to see how it all comes together at the end.
Jan 17, 2021Best what I've seen from Lord of the rings. The world is so beautiful and has so many details. Unbelievable how many work people put in it. Strange that it has not that much hype as Game of thrones or Witcher
Jan 10, 2021It's extremely risky to revisit cult classics as it is very easy to miss the original charm that makes them magical. This series however, not only did the original movie justice but actually may have even surpassed it. Richness in visual and plot details, coupled brilliant voice acting makes for a new possible classic. Can't wait for another season.
Dec 20, 2020Absolutely love it! The magic and the look into the world that I wanted to see more of as a child. This was like a dream come true!
Oct 20, 2020It it amazing! I am so disappointed Netflix canceled the show. The cinematography is 2nd to none. This is a master piece that needs to be revived!
Sep 25, 2020Best show on TV. Now it's canceled. Please don't let it die. We love you Jim Henson.
Sep 23, 2020This series is absolutely amazing, breathtakingly beautiful, it's a must see.
Sep 22, 2020Don't think it can be interesting for adults, a lot of effort being poured into creating the world (and too much is on effects, just like Avatar) but the decision to create the creatures of clay ruined my experience
Sep 22, 2020This was one of the best shows on the Netflix platform and I have been waiting for the 2nd season for a while! Now I have come to find out that Netflix has canceled trying to make up for lost money from Cuties. This is a joke fix this shit Netflix!!!
