Premiering at San Diego Comic-Con today, Netflix and the Jim Henson Company’s new Dark Crystal series just gave us a really neat look at what it takes to create this puppet-filled show.


In case you missed it, the cast for this one is phenomenal. Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nathalie Emmanuel lead the cast with Sigourney Weaver, Mark Hamill, Andy Samberg, Natalie Dormer, Jason Isaacs, Eddie Izzard, Game of Thrones Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Hannah John-Kamen, Awkwafina, Dave Goelz all lending their voices.

Folks lucky enough to be in attendance at the panel today got to watch an episode but for now, us outsiders get a cool behind-the-scenes video.

As previously mentioned, in addition to CG technology, the company’s classic puppetry is a huge piece of the show. And it looks like the hard work paid off.


Besides the new show, we’ll also be getting a prequel comic and a video game to keep us busy. We’ll have more on the series out of Comic-Cnn coming up later so stay tuned The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance hits Netflix on August 30.

There’s something quite delightful about seeing Dave Goelz included among the superstar voices in this series. Is he the last of the original Muppeteers?
