"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 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.

The tragedy this show portends may gnaw at knowing viewers, but Age of Resistance rarely feels heavy, and its social consciousness doesn't really cloy.

This is a Jim Henson Company production doing exactly what the Jim Henson Company does so well.

This isn't just a faithful return to Henson's original vision but greatly expands on his world with a remarkable story that stands well enough on its own with a gorgeously fantastic design.

The use of CGI... generates a magical aesthetic that brings the universe of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to modernity without losing it's traditional look. [Full review in Spanish]

Age of Resistance is an entirely unnecessary prequel which makes itself necessary by virtue of being f***ing amazing. Go and watch it. Now.

The new production is missing Henson's sense of elegance, with Leterrier content to remain noisy and needlessly sadistic.

An enchanting magical journey following seven clans of Gelfling. There is a lot of room to discuss how Indigenous people might turn against each other when faced with a patriarchal society.
