The countdown to the premiere of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is officially on!

Netflix released a new trailer for the highly-anticipated series, giving fans a closer look at the world of Thra.

In the trailer, the Gelflings unite to take down the Skeksis and fight to protect their world.

“I don’t think anything will be like it was again,” Brea says.

“No, it will be better,” Rain assures her.

Based on the 1982 film from Jim Henson, the series returns to the world of Thra as three Gelflings discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power and set out on an adventure to save their world. The 10-episode series takes place “many years” before the events of the cult classic film.
