A beauty with a fully realized world which seems to know where it's going and how to get there.

One of the all-time great fantasy epics, as well as the masterwork of puppetry most closely aligned with Jim Henson's humanistic philosophy.

There are real pleasures to be had watching beautiful puppets running, kissing and poking each others' eyes out. But the Dark Crystal is in such a hurry to create a splash it plunges off the deep end too soon.

Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Understand: The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is never anything less than impressive... But in entrusting so much of the story to puppets incapable of adequately executing its emotional demands, the series winds up feeling strangely empty.

My high hopes were met and then some after viewing all ten episodes of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

This feels like watching the Jim Henson Company at the height of its powers, a heartwarming return to the tactile, the practical, the immediate.

Prequel saga is tense, violent, and a visual masterpiece.

Sep 16, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

This isn't just a faithful return to Henson's original vision but greatly expands on his world with a remarkable story that stands well enough on its own with a gorgeously fantastic design.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The use of CGI... generates a magical aesthetic that brings the universe of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to modernity without losing it's traditional look. [Full review in Spanish]

Sep 9, 2019 | Full Review…

Crosses multiple genres, has high fantasy, real human moments, along with political intrigue and modern social commentary embedded throughout. A must watch for fans of humanistic fantasy. The Dark Crystal is also, um...DARK

Dives deep into the world of Thra, giving us a story that expands the world and fantasy in a way that can be enjoyed by adults, families and children of all ages.

    An incredibly well made series which fits perfectly into the brilliant Dark Crystal universe. Starts off slow, but picks up around the end of the third episode. Amazing cast, amazing puppets.

    So beautiful and unique, this series really stands out from the rest. You can see the effort they put in this and it just feels like you're watching some kind of magic, 100% recommended. I'm waiting for season 2!

    Loved the 80s movie (always one of my favourite films ever) and now I love the prequel. Brilliant to be able to introduce my own children (aged 9 and 10) to the fantasy universe though it certainly is brutal and very dark in places. Can't wait for another season.

    Visually stunning. Good story. Very violent and to many snot jokes. Gory as well. Not for young kids or toddlers. Many of the lifeforms from the movie. Chamberlain is the scene stealer in the shows. Voices and puppetry are well done.

    Loved it! Characters, story/plot, and the acting was superb! Only thing I'd like was if it was a touch more CG for the characters' facial expressions, but outside of that I loved every second!
  • Nov 03, 2019
    Absolutely loved it can't wait to find out about season 2
  • Nov 02, 2019
    Amazing artistry and story! A worthy prequel to The Dark Crystal. Can't wait for a second season!

    Finally more Dark Crystal! Has the feel of the movie.
