In just about two months, the prequel series to Jim Henson's beloved 1982 film The Dark Crystal will be arriving on Netflix for all to enjoy. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is going to take the story of the cult classic to an even deeper level, adding to the mythology of Thra and the war between Skeksis and Gelflings. Marketing for Age of Resistance is finally starting to ramp up, as a batch of new photos were released online just last week. In the early hours of Thursday morning, Netflix added even more to the mix, debuting the series' first official poster.
The stunning Age of Resistance poster was released via the show's Instagram account, sharing a look at the three main characters of the prequel. The caption on the post also teased a potential trailer arriving sometime on Thursday.
"The Skeksis have left their mark," reads the post. "But sleep Gelflings. The three suns bring light in 8 hours."
