Netflix's New 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' Trailer Looks Equal Parts Weird and Incredible

Netflix's New 'The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance' Trailer Looks Equal Parts Weird and Incredible The original series is a 21st century makeover to Jim Henson's '80s cult classic. Who would have thought that after all these years, Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal would get a full on Netflix series? The (objectively terrifying) live-action film from the early '80s is getting a 2019 revamp on Netflix, and if the trailer is any indication, it looks like Netflix invested some serious money in this one. The series is set to pick up in the troubled world of Thra, years before the original film took place.

Netflix isn't leaning solely on Black Mirror to comment on the perils of the digital age. The company has snapped upClickbait, a thriller series that will tackle both the dangers of social networking and the ever-growing gap between our real and online identities. The casting, availability and other key details will have to wait, but there's already some pedigree behind the show.

It's easy to be skeptical about the series when there have been plenty of movies and shows that have used social media more as a plot hook than a tool for commentary. There is some hope, though. Ayres has described Clickbait as a "passion project" that he expects will have "real global reach and impact." That suggests the title could explore the concept more seriously -- though it's likely going to take a while to get a definitive answer.
