The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, Season One (2019) | Review

I honestly expected to like Netflix’s reboot of The Dark Crystal, but what I didn’t expect was one of the best series of the year.

I’ve always been a fan of puppetry as an art form but typically it’s hard to get beyond that particular aspect (as in you’re always conscious that you’re watching puppets) though with The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance I was surprised at how quickly the puppets became actually individuals and more human that many movies with actual human actors.

Age Of Resistance is a prequel to the original film, so if you’ve seen it you already know how things are going to end.

But what’s most fascinating is how they get there, and it’s been long enough that you probably don’t remember all the finer details, which in a way is a good thing because with nine hours and change there’s much more story than in the original movie.
