Jarrod Fairclough – We’re just a few weeks away from the Dark Crystal prequel series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance premiering on Netflix, and we couldn’t be more excited to see what The Jim Henson Company has in store for us. Already announced is a documentary on the series, but we’ll also get a behind the scenes look in November when ‘Inside The Epic Return To Thra’ comes to book stores.
Authored by Daniel Wallace and published by Inside Editions, the 156 page book promises to lift the lid on the making of the show. The following excerpt is from their official press release;
Set many years before the events of The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s classic 1982 movie, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance returns to the world of Thra with an all-new adventure. When three Gelfling 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. Revealing the incredible creative process behind the new series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance – Inside the Epic Return to Thra is an all-access look at the show’s journey to the screen that details how prolific producer Lisa Henson and visionary director Louis Letterier, along with legendary character and costume designer Brian Froud, and the world-renowned Jim Henson’s Creature Shop brought Thra and its characters to life with a team of artists and puppeteers who are continuing the legacy of the original film.
The team at Inside Editions were also on hand at San Diego Comic Con last month to chat to Lisa Henson about the series.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance – Inside The Epic Return To Thra will be released in November 2019, and will retail for $50.
