Plot Synopsis

THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE, a prequel to the Jim Henson's 1982 film THE DARK CRYSTAL, returns to the world of Thra with an all new adventure. When three Gelfling -- Rian, Brea and Deet -- 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. In the land of Thra, a young guard discovers a terrible secret about the Skeksis overlords who control the planet -- and its powerful Crystal of Truth. As Deet sets out on her quest, Aughra awakens from a long journey, Rian flees the castle, and Brea searches for the meaning of the mysterious symbol. Brea struggles with her unsavory new duties, Deet and Hup get a hostile welcome from the Stonewood clan, and Rian begs his Maudra for help. Netflix released the 10-episode first season of THE DARK CRYSTAL: AGE OF RESISTANCE on Friday, August 30, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.
