The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
I’m not really sure why anyone thought it was okay for me to watch The Dark Crystal as a child—upon many rewatching, it’s not really meant for children as it is fairly scary—and don’t even get me started on the thinly-veiled metaphor of the Skeksis stealing the life essence from the innocent and child-like Podlings. That being said, it didn’t do any lasting damage that I’m aware of and I’m very, very excited to see this very ambitious prequel. This making of/preview trailer showcases the mixture of practical effects and seamlessly mixing it with CGI in a way that makes it feel like very much like a modern-day Jim Henson production. Look for it on Netflix on August 30th.
