As huge fans of Jim Henson's The Dark Crystal
(1982), Weta Workshop is excited to dive into the world of Thra and create premium collectibles for the prequel series on Netflix. The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
tells a new story, set many years before the events of the movie. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth has been corrupted by the evil Skeksis and sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, the fires of rebellion are kindled and an epic battle for survival begins.
Among the peoples of Thra, Podlings might be thought of as least, given their humbleness and short stature. Living uncomplicated lives and delighting in simple pleasures, Podlings are usually peripheral to acts of boldness and heroism… but Hup is no ordinary Podling. What he might lack in physical presence, Hup more than makes up for in heart. Brave, with a deep sense of justice and loyalty, his dream is to be a paladin, an exclusively Gelfling role thus far. But the Podling must set aside his hopes of recruitment when he meets the Gelfling Deet, instead becoming companion and protector to the Grottan on the perilous quest that has brought her above ground. No better friend will Deet find than in Hup, and she comes to need the brave Podling's help, for the burden of knowledge she bears and the dangerous path she must walk cannot be managed alone.
