If you haven’t already seen this amazing prequel to the classic Dark Crystal film featuring the incredible art of the legendary Brian Froud, what are you waiting for?
Not only is ‘Dark Crystal – Age of Resistance’ an amazing leap up from the original Dark Crystal film in every respect it is also a series that is ten hours long giving so much more Brian Froud to enjoy! In a time of overdone CGI and trendy teen heroes ticking all the marketing boxes it is refreshing to see some real creativity at work in this Dark Crystal prequel. Brian Froud may be a lot older than the young artist who collaborated with Alan Lee on the classic “Fairies” book and made his name in the original Dark Crystal film (and also Labyrinth) but Brian Froud shows no signs of slowing down as he gets older. The work he has put into the look of this series is staggeringly creative and he is just going from strength to strength. This Dark Crystal series isn’t just an enjoyable fantasy story but with Brian Froud’s art it is a feast for the eyes for anyone aged 5 to 500! The characters are great fun and the detail is just wonderful. The lies and treachery of the Skeksis also reflect the world politics of our own world where we could easily feel that those in power are far more interested in their own agendas than serving their people.
