Since the announcement of a new ten hour prequel series, Netflix and The Jim Henson Company have been scant on details, offering no imagery, or footage despite the project having formally wrapped almost three months ago after nearly a full year of filming. Fandom has been uproarious in their desire to see something from the production.
‘Resistance’ is unlike any other property that Netflix has produced because of its massive cult following and the fanbase that’s developed in the intervening years. The Dark Crystal, released in 1982, directed by Jim Henson and Frank Oz is a film that has stood the test of time and is a religion unto itself, only finding acclaim and success because of fan devotion.
While the leaked image of a Skeksis appears to be a screen test, it’s a welcome sight in what has been complete silence as the wait continues. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is slated for a 2019 release, with no formal release date given.
