First-look pictures of Dark Crystal released

The '80s classic is back in series form in 2019.

Netflix has offered the first look at the upcoming Dark Crystal spin-off series.

Titled Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, the series serves as a prequel for the 1982 fantasy movie, which included ground-breaking puppetry and visuals from Jim Henson. 

New images of the Gelflings - the mystical creatures that inhabit the world of Dark Crystal, have been released, showing that they match up to the original film. 

A teaser trailer was previously released in May, offering a short look at the character designs in pre-production.

Alongside the first look, Netflix has announced the cast that will lend their voices to the series. 

Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel will play the three lead Gelflings Rian, Brea and Deet.

They’ll be joined by big names like Helena Bonham-Carter, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Toby Jones, Mark Strong and Alicia Vikander.

Mark Hamill, Ralph Ineson, Jason Isaacs, Keenan Michael-Key and Simon Pegg will also lend their voices to the series. 

Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will air at some point in 2019 on Netflix.
