Netflix's puppet animated TV series is debuting on August and it packs a punch with its star-studded voice actor cast. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistence is a prequel to Jim Henson's 1982 high-fantasy film set years before the events of the original movie in the fictional planet of Thra. The synopsis reads, "The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins."
To add to this epic journey, chronicled in 10 episodes, the series features a cast of Hollywood bigwigs led by Taron Egerton (Kingsman the Secret Service, Rocketman), Anya Taylor-Joy (Split), and Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones). Other voice actors include Natalie Dormer (also from Game of Thrones), Helena Bonham Carter, Mark Hamill, Alicia Vikander, Andy Samberg, Theo James, Keegan Michael Key, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Simon Pegg, and Jason Isaacs.
