From the movies...

This series by Netflix is actually inspired by another movie released in 1982, The Dark Crystal.

With the direction of Jim Henson and Frank Oz, The Dark Crystal is a story of an old conflict between the Skeksis and the Mystics on the faraway world of Thra, which has been split by a crack in a magical crystal. One piece of the crystal finds its way to an elf-like "Gelfling", who will later venture into a mission: returning the piece, restoring the crystal, and saving his alien world. The movie featured a narrative in a Tolkien-style, and received mixed reviews from the audience.

The original movie, The Dark Crystal, was released in 1982.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is an upcoming Netflix television series. Following the plot of the original movie, the audience will have a chance to enter the mysterious world of Thra while keeping their eyes on three Gelflings – Rian, Brea and Deet, who spark a revolution against the Skeksis when they learn about a horrifying secret behind their power that can be a threat to the world.
