The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance: Inside the Epic Return to Thra

When you have a love for a show or even just the incredible talent of The Jim Henson Company, there are ways to learn and be inspired. Insight Editions create amazing books that are in-depth, almost like an encyclopedia on the topic. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance; Inside the Epic Return to Thra offers a better understanding of the original story of “The Dark Crystal.”

Did you know that there was a proposed sequel to the film named “The Power of the Dark Crystal?” These are aspects the book touches on as well as character bios, locations within Thra, and more. There are 191 pages of all the content your Dark Crystal brain can handle.

What I love most about this book is the concept art and storyboarding that we get to see. Creating a film or show takes a lot of creative processing. Add in the aspect that the characters are puppets, you have a new level of creative processes. The book shows how Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, legendary character and costume designer Brian Froud, and director Louis Leterrier brought Thra and its characters to life alongside the many artists and puppeteers who are continuing the legacy of the original film.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance [combines] the art of puppetry perfected by The Jim Henson Company, with Louis’ vision, powerful storytelling, and a mix of cutting-edge digital imagery and visual effects,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix.

The book is written by Daniel Wallace, with a foreword by executive producer Lisa Henson.  You’ll get to read exclusive cast and crew interviews, and the concept and set photography that offers a fantastic behind the scenes look at “The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.”
Pick up your copy of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance: Inside the Epic Return to Thra at IndieBound, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon.
MSRP; $50.00; All ages.
