From Narcos to the recently released Leila, Netflix has been constantly offering a variety of orginal content for serial binge watchers. The latest in the line up of releases includes the TV series adaptation of Jim Henson’s 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal.

Featuring the voice cast of Game of Thrones stars Lena Headey (as Maudra Fara), Nathalie Emmanuel (as Deet) and Natalie Dormer (as Onica), the anticipated series will arrive on August 30.

The official synopsis of the show reads: "At the heart of Thra lies The Crystal of Truth - a source of untold power. But with the Crystal falling in the hands of the evil Skeksis, a sickness spreads all across the land. Adventure ensues when three Gelfling set on a journey to uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis - and an epic battle for the planet begins."

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance also features Taron Egerton (Kingsman and Rocketman) as Rian, Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as Brea, voicing pivotal roles in helping unravel the mysterious adventure that will unfold on the dying world of Thra.
