Hey 80’s kids, it’s time to return to the world of Thra. Netlix has released the trailer for the new series Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
The trailer looks great! Fans of the original, will definitely want to check it out, but it’s not just banking on nostalgia. The trailer for the series brings a dark story of tyranny, bravery, and hope that will resound with newer audiences.
