The final Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance trailer showcases epic fight ahead for good

The latest trailer for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is promising the series will have an epic edge.

The prequel series to the beloved 1982 Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal is due to premiere on August 30 only on Netflix.

It's set years before the movie, and follows three Gelfling as they uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis as a sickness spreads across the land.

​The series promises adventure "as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins."
