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 premiering on Netflix, August 30. 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.
A young Gelfling warrior in the Castle of the Crystal, Rian aspires someday to be captain of the Guard, like his father Ordon. Brave and kind, he carries a deep love for his friend and fellow guard Mira, but a terrible discovery will turn his life upside down, tear his heart in two and see him flee his once carefree home, forsaking vows of service and family.
Beyond the castle, Rian will be an outlaw, hunted through the riven wilderness to bury the dark truth he knows and preserve the cruel Skeksis’ rule. Vast distances he must travel, a conspiracy he must unmask, and new friends he must enlist if there is to be any hope for him and all who live in the world of Thra.
Rian the Gelfling joins Weta Workshop’s exquisitely detailed line of Dark Crystal collectibles; a line that pays homage to the richly layered, fantastical world of Thra. Add Rian to your collection today!
