Netflix just dropped a bomb out of nowhere. They will be bringing the prequel series based of Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal to life. The series is called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance to life and shooting begins this Fall. Helming and executive producing the series is Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me, The Incredible Hulk). The ten episode series will take place many years before the events of the first film.

Deadline was able to get some great quotes on the amazing project below.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will combine the art of puppetry perfected by the Jim Henson Company, with Louis’ vision, powerful storytelling and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects,” said Cindy Holland, VP Original Content at Netflix. “I can’t wait for families around the world to see how we bring these unique characters to life.”

Said Lisa Henson, CEO of the Jim Henson Company: “Louis Leterrier is passionate about the world of The Dark Crystal and has an incredible creative vision for the series. He brings this passion to every facet of the production as he leads the talented team of artists and writers that are bringing this entire universe to life. Netflix has a deep respect for my father’s original work and the many people it inspired. They are the perfect partners to create this next epic chapter in The Dark Crystal story for new fans and the loyal fans who have waited so long for more adventures from this world.”
