    One of my all time favorite movies from my childhood is getting a series! Well I knew it was coming eventually just didn't know when. Before Jim Henson died he was thinking of doing another Dark Crystal but obviously never got around to it. Approximately four years ago the Jim Henson company held a contest to write another series or companion story of sorts to go with the movie and I believe someone wrote a comic. I am curious to see what is will be like. It's a prequel and to see the young(er) Aughra, Mystics and the Skesis is really exciting.

    Jen: Wings? I don't have wings!

    Kira: Of course not. You're a boy.

    Magic.

    Hopefully it'll be good ole escapism as opposed to making it relevant to adults who grew up with it. The last Muppets series was cynical as hell. And I swear if this has an 80's synth soundtrack then help me........

    Also, probably still awesome for scaring unruly toddlers.

    My older sister used to walk around the house whimpering like Chamberlain.

    Have you guys seen this?

    The trailer looks absolutely amazing. Not sure what I was expecting, but I'm definitely impressed and can't wait to see it.

    The release date is August 30th 2019 and the final title for the series is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

    Yeah, that's what I love about this. They could have gone full on CGI with it, but they didn't. When it was first announced, I was a little skeptical. Now seeing the trailer and the fact that they've kept much of the original look and feel, I'm very happy.

    Man that's shaping up to look awesome.

    Netflix has a few pretty awesome shows in the lineup. This the Witcher series. A live action avatar that goes more in depth with he original creators behind. And that's no the 200+ originals they put out every month.
