#SDCC2019 | The making of 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance'
Netflix surprised in-room fans with the never before seen first episode of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance on Friday in Hall H at 2019 San Diego International Comic-Con.
TV Guide’s Damian Holbrook moderated the panel graced by the voice actors Taron Egerton and Mark Hamill, executive producer Lisa Henson and director Louis Leterrier.
"Every shot was the most complicated shot of my career," Leterrier said. "But the true heroes are the puppeteers.”
Egerton agreed, “The amount of craft that goes into the making of the puppets, the artistry that goes into those creatures, and then the guys who operate them. We arrive and it’s there. It’s inspiring in itself, the work that everyone else has done kind of feeds your performance.”
The highly anticipated fantasy series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is based on Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal. “I never thought it would come back, when I saw the original. Funny that would never dream of going back to something that you were known for, so long before," Hamill shared.
In this stunning new prequel, three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, and set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world. Realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects, the cast and creators discuss all of your burning questions about bringing Thra to life.
