The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Recommended Posts

I have no idea if there is any CGI involved in this series, but man that teaser is bringing the wonder of the all puppet feel of the movie. Can't believe I have to wait 3 months for it.

Yes. It looks like the backgrounds are mostly CG, and same with the flying creatures early on. However, I think the muppets are 100% muppet. For a lot of people, that's a large part of the appeal.

The producers have said that they used greenscreen to remove the puppeteers, but the characters (and a lot of the sets) look completely practical.

This looks really good and it was nice to see the use of real puppets over CGI characters. I loved The Dark Crystal as a kid and I watched it a few years back it held up well enough.

I look forward to watching this series.
