‘The Dark Crystal’ was a muppet-inspired fantasy film that came out in 1982. And it’s getting a prequel series 35+ years later, whether you think it needs one or not, so deal with it. The full title is, ‘THE DARK CRYSTAL: THE AGE OF RESISTANCE’. And while The Jim Henson Company has been working hard to breath new life into this old brand, the main characters still look muppet-like and spooky, with big dead eyes. But the special effects are good.
