The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance is based off the original movie from 1982. This was a movie I adored in my childhood and this series is very nostalgic for me. The series follows the original story with some changes to the plot and characters. The show delves deeper in the lore, extends the storyline and offers a new perspective to this mystic tale. This series like the movie is made of puppets and CGI (i can only assume). The puppets look exactly like the originals with some slight differences. The extended story is a good one and has only been improved in this depiction of the movie by Netflix. I recommend this for the fantasy addict.
Jim Henson's daughter Lisa Henson truly kept the spirt of her father's legacy alive. Age of Resistance series is more of a long origin story. With the beloved 1982 a cult movie The Dark Crystal being the finale. Jim Henson once quoted as saying- "To see a creation come alive is my life's work".
