The Dark Crystal is a Netflix Original sci-fi/fantasy series that sees a group of brave Gelfling unite on a quest to save their world from power-hungry overlords hell-bent on draining life from the planet Thra. So yep, definitely sci-fi/fantasy.
A collaboration between Netflix and The Jim Henson Company, the show is a prequel to the 1982 Jim Henson film The Dark Crystal. The world of Thra explored by the series was created for the original film.
Post Production Supervisor Karen Payne (Star Wars: Rogue One;X-Men: First Class) brought the show’s production team to Frith Street, where they set up shop in our first floor cutting rooms for a number of weeks. Originally scheduled to complete in March, the team extended their stay until the end of July, thanks to highly complex Visual Effects work. The team also hired further Avid Pro Tools equipment to provide additional dialogue record.
Available to watch on Netflix, the series debuted on 30 August to universal acclaim from fans and critics alike, securing an 8.8 score on IMDB.
