‘The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance’ Documentary Clip Reveals Netflix’s Puppet Mastery

After screening the first episode of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance for the gathered fans at San Diego Comic-Con, the Netflix show also revealed a clip from their upcoming behind-the-scenes special The Making of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Little is known about the documentary at the moment except for the fact that it will highlight the accomplished creative production team behind the scenes of the ambitious prequel series.

Syfy had a chance to attend an earlier press conference where producer Lisa Henson, star Taron Egerton, and director Louis Leterrier announced the documentary and talked a bit about the production process. From Henson talking about the inspiration of Ancient Roman conquerors for the prequel’s villains, to the reveal that all voice recording took place well after the puppet performances were locked in, there are some interesting tidbits from this piece. Unfortunately, we don’t know when the documentary will arrive. But in the meantime, we have this lovely behind-the-scenes look to hold us over.

Here’s the clip in question. Please enjoy it while I go sign up for an amateur puppetry class:
