A conversation with the producers, director, writers, and designer of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance: Jeff Addiss, Brian Froud, Lisa Henson, Louis Leterrier, Will Matthews, and Halle Stanford

Based on Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, the Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie, when the evil Skeksis lorded over The Land of Thra and three Gelflings spark a rebellion to restore balance to the planet. Realized using live-action puppetry with cutting edge visual effects, Age of Resistance has been warmly embraced by Dark Crystal fans worldwide.
