​Helena Bonham-Carter, Eddie Izzard, Andy Samberg Join Cast of Netflix's 'Dark Crystal' Prequel
Last year, we learned that Jim Henson and Frank Oz's The Dark Crystal would be getting a prequel series on Netflix, and now the cast of voice actors for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has been announced.
 
The three lead Gelflings — Rian, Brea and Deet — will be voiced by Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel, respectively.
 
Other characters will be brought to life by the likes of Helena Bonham-Carter, Eddie Izzard, Andy Samberg and Alicia Vikander.
 
As previously reported, the upcoming series is set years before the original 1982 film, and it follows the aforementioned Gelfling trio as  they "discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis' power [and] set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world."
 
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is directed by Louis Leterrier, and the creatures featured in the series were created by Brian Froud and the Jim Henson Company.
 
A release date has not yet been announced.
