The last we heard, plans for Netflix’s Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance were moving along at a nice Strider’s pace.
Back during NYCC, Lisa Henson offered some updates on the series, and a teaser trailer was released, focusing on some familiar creatures from the world of the original The Dark Crystal film.
Just today though, the Next on Netflix (NX) Twitter account shared an interesting factoid that could possibly mean some news about Age of Resistance is coming tomorrow-
Anyone else notice tomorrow is the 36th anniversary of The Dark Crystal? Seems…fortuitous. pic.twitter.com/iKuqbgJJcu

Indeed, tomorrow is the 36th anniversary of The Dark Crystal, and it would be the PERFECT time to share a full-length trailer (and maybe release date?) for the upcoming Netflix series. In this prequel to the fantasy classic, three young Gelflings inspire a rebellion against the cruel emperor when they discover a horrifying secret.
There are hopes that if this new partnership with the streaming service/studio goes well, other possible Henson properties could find a home at Netflix, as well as some new creations as well.
We’ll of course let you know if/when we hear anything new about The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
