A Dark Crystal prequel series is coming to Netflix.
The streamer has ordered 10 episodes of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, an '80s fantasy adventure show from The Jim Henson Company, set to debut later in 2017. It will take place many years before the events of the 1982 film.

Bet your predictions of HOW Shitflix will fuck with it.

A Dark Crystal prequel series is coming to Netflix.
No. Please no. The movie was perfect as is and the comics and novels were all I needed. Please no. This movie is one of my most beloved treasures and it doesn't need a spinoff revival in this age of hack writers and current year syndrome. Just let its legacy and memory shine brightly. Don't piss all over it.

the movie was awful, didn't explain shit, didn't make sense, and the gelflings were creepier to look at than the skeksis

your nostalgia aside, a remake and prequel could benefit this IP quite a bit

Luis Lee

This user's right. I watched the full movie years ago and didn't understand a goddamn thing happening at all.

Alexander Morris

It's going to be shit, obviously. The only thing worth mentioning is that it looks like they're actually going to be using puppets instead of CGI, which is astounding for CURRENT YEAR.

The Skeksis and The Mystics used to be the same race, but when the crystal was shattered they were split into good and evil. The Gelflings fulfilled the prophecy of unfucking what they did by reuniting the shard of the Dark Crystal and stopping the Skeksis from becoming immortal.

I watched this movie when I was 8 and understood it perfectly fine.

They would look better in CG, the gelfling puppets were uncanny valley as hell, that shit does not work for humanoid characters
yeah, that's an incredibly vague generalized synopsis. when you break it down, the whole story is full of holes

Skeksis will probably be Republicans/Right wingers and Mystics/Gelflings diverse resistance

It's pretty surreal to realize we'll never have anyone as amazing as Jim Henson ever again…

because you made a shit movie, Jim.
accept it.
Labyrinth sucked, too. If not for cute Connelly and cool Bowie, no one- I repeat - no one, would remember that movie fondly.

quotes a stupid scene that made no sense
they couldn't just have had a sword fight between the puppets
Thanks for proving my point, anons

My opinion is correct, and this hypothetical alternate universe scenario is evidence that it is.

Judging by this thread, Dark Crystal was a really polarizing film.

I'd watch the netflix series for the old traditional special effects alone. Looking forward to it.

No one ever said, "hey remember laybrinth? remeber that little jewish goblin that pissed and gassed fairies?"

its all about bowie and connelly, if they went with their original script the movie would have faded into obscurity

Grayson Harris

It wasn't polarizing, everybody liked it. There's one contrarian faggot here, that's all.

Joshua Reyes

user, you're lying to yourself if you think one person feels this way.

Excuse the Youtube autism, but this guy explains his hang-ups with the writing pretty well, even though he enjoys it and went on to read the comics.

It wont be bad. You can shit on netflix's bad all you want but they still put out some really good quality stuff to even it out.

Maybe if you didn't totally focus on the bad all the time.

Give some fucking examples to prove your point then.

Veggie Tales, The OA, Narcos, House of Cards, Stranger Things, Daredevil, Trailer Park Boys, Haters Back Off, Arrested Development, Anne With an E, Peewee's big holiday, and a few others.

There is also a shitton of more mediocre stuff. The actual cancerous shit is far outnumbered by the average to good stuff.

The gelfling puppets were really creepy (Kira was qt tough, but that was more due to the voice).

I feel it would've been a better decision to use kids in make ups. Instead the contant transition between obvious mechanical puppets for close shots and kids in masks for far away shots was kinda uncanny.

Gavin Hernandez
Gavin Hernandez

I should think there are probably rules or regulations or something about decking kids out in that much makeup, I mean how many instances of that can you name? it's why they always use puppets or midgets, or now CGI

William Collins

I'm too tired for this shit. Just watch this asshole's video

Eli Sullivan

I was about to say Nog but then I remembered he was a midget. Maybe you're right.

Levi Gutierrez

besides that, kids have limited time to work due to regulations, right? when you have to take like 5 hours to put em in makeup that would really cripple things

Andrew Ward
Andrew Ward

It depends on when the movie was made. Pre Twilight Zone movie there was hardly any regulations. Post Twilight Zone movie there was so many regulations it was easier to use puppets or midgets in place of real kids 99% of the time.

the puppets freaked anons out
Jim himself said its unhealthy for children to never be afraid.

Brody Turner

apparently, according to concept art, the gelflings were supposed to have creepy black eyes too

Aiden Adams

Theodd1sout? An asshole? He's a lot of things, e.g. the leader of a trend of childish "relatability porn" with minimal animation and therefore YT cancer, but he's no asshole.

Cooper Thomas

It's a show about a shitty self-obsessed bitch in a hugbox facing reality. What's bad about it?

Joseph Reed
Joseph Reed

I think it makes them less creepy and more like bugs.

Tyler Hughes
Tyler Hughes

I think he's just insulting him as a passive aggressive sort of addressing over legitimately thinking he's a asshole.

Jordan Clark

Bugs or pixies. I like it; it's cute in a mythical kind of way.

Bentley Murphy

creepy in a pixie/fantasy way is still different than creepy in a puppet-making-the-character-look-like-a-robot-is-jerking-around-wearing-a-dead-persons-skin way

David James

this is why concept art is always better
kira looks like a monkey btw

Landon Evans

I think it's just that the puppets ultimately didn't do the idea justice. It's sad, because even the comics don't seem to have the whimsical, beautiful feel that the concept art has.
