Netflix releases a blooper reel for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Netflix has released a blooper reel for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance prequel series which features joy, goofiness, and genuine mistakes from the cast, crew, and puppeteers on set. You can watch the reel below…

The hilarious blooper reel includes scenes showcasing the Skeksis screaming at humans walking nearby, Taron Egerton messing up his lines a couple of times, Gelfling’s singing pop songs and dancing, and ears falling off the Gelfling puppets.

‘The Dark Crystal’: See Each ‘Age of Resistance’ Puppet and the Actor That Plays Them Side-By-Side

‘The Dark Crystal’: See Each ‘Age of Resistance’ Puppet and the Actor That Plays Them Side-By-Side
As a prequel series to “The Dark Crystal,” Netflix’s “Age of Resistance” takes place long before the majority of the Gelfling population disappeared and features seven divided Gelfling clans on Thra who are under Skeksis rule. But when the Skeksis’ horrifying secret is discovered and its effects on the planet of Thra, the Gelflings must unite to fight back against the evil overlords.

Although it takes multiple people to bring just one character to life – from the writers and puppet designers to the puppeteers who also do the initial voice performance as a guide – a slew of celebrities were also lured by the song of Thra to lend their voices. Sigourney Weaver, however, is the one big name who was never seen on screen, in puppet form or otherwise, as the voice of the narrating Myth Speaker.

Lisa Henson believes her father would be “really happy” with The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

In 1982, Jim Henson released the puppet animated dark fantasy adventure movie, The Dark Crystal. The film revolved around a group of Gelfling on a journey to restore balance to their world, Thra, by restoring a powerful broken crystal currently under control by the evil Skeksis.

Unfortunately, Henson never had the chance to further explore the world of Thra and expand on the lore as he passed away in 1990. However, Netflix has recently released The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, a prequel series that explores a previous time in Thra’s history – which both critics and fans are praising.

Now, according to Jim Henson’s daughter, Lisa Henson, she believes her father would have approved of the prequel series. In a recent interview with Yahoo, Lisa stated that she feels confident that Jim would have liked what the show has achieved:

Lisa Henson on the possibility of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance season 2

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance was released on Netflix this past Friday to praise from fans and critics alike. Now, according to executive producer Lisa Henson, the showrunners have plenty of ideas for another season – depending if Netflix calls for a second season.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, Henson, the daughter of Jim Henson, claimed the original pitch for Age of Resistance went beyond the first season of the series, but only time will tell if they can expand the story further.

“When [showrunners] Jeffrey Addiss and Will Matthews pitched us their version of the series, it actually did continue on past this and then we realized it was moving too quickly and we cut it back,” Henson said. “So even though we made 10 episodes, we only have produced six of their original episodes. We definitely have ideas about where it goes from here, but time will tell if

This week finally marks the release of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the eagerly anticipated prequel series to the cult-favourite 1982 film. It’s also an exciting collaboration between the Jim Henson Company and Netflix – resulting in a ten part series we cannot wait for. In the meantime, to really get us in the mood, we sat down with three of the talented vocal stars – Nathalie Emmanuel, Hannah John-Kamen and Shazad Latif.

We discuss the artistry that goes into making a show like this, and whether any of them were lucky enough to see the set. They talk about the experience of being a voice actor, their own relationship with the Dark Crystal property, and whether they enjoy being involved in something they have to keep so quiet about, or if they find it all rather difficult.

‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance': Skeksis Scheme and Gelflings Unite in Gorgeous New Trailer (Video)

  • The Wrap
As if the wait wasn’t already too long, Netflix has released the first full trailer for “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance,” and unsurprising for fans of Jim Henson’s 1982 cult classic, it’s filled with some incredible scenes — and equally incredible puppetry.

Watch the trailer above.

Set many years before the events of the original film, “Age of Resistance” tells the story of how the damaged world of Thra came to be. You can see plenty of that in the trailer, which shows how the Skeksis, previously seen as the benign leaders of Thra, are now pushing the planet into “the darkening” due to their overuse of the energy contained in The Crystal of Truth — that’s the one that goes dark. We also see how the Gelflings unite to oppose them, with plenty of gorgeous scenery and thrills galore in the meantime.

‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ – Look Behind the Gelfling Apocalypse in Comic-Con Clip (Video)

  • The Wrap
Netflix brought “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” to Hall H on Friday at Comic-Con 2019, treating fans to a full screening of the show’s first episode. Unfortunately, the rest of you will have to wait until the show premieres next month to see it yourself, but you can tide yourself over with a new behind-the-scenes clip made especially for Sdcc.

Watch it above.

The clip mainly focuses on the creation and design of the puppetry and animatronics deployed for the series — they look incredible, in our opinion. But, toward the end, there’s a glimpse of the plot and it looks pretty epic — something about a tribe of Gelflings trying to stop something the Skeksis are doing. Sounds great, even if we know this is a prequel to the movie where we learn the Skeksis hunted Gelflings to extinction.
