“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” and its Jaw-Dropping Voice Cast

Posted on June 26, 2019

We’re going on the assumption that for those of you who adored the original film, all of this is extremely squee-worthy. We’re happy for you. Yes, it’s true. We never saw the original Dark Crystal. You will all tell us we must immediately rectify that situation – and we will! We promise! But for now, we think you should sit down and focus on this casting news, which is downright jaw-dropping.

Miss Press Release? The floor is yours.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, they set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.

Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.
