Sometimes things are just of a time yet at the same time, timeless. They've just got a look, you know? It's the sort of thing that if revisited and they get it in any way wrong in the look or feel it's going to be incredibly jarring because there's always that single and incredibly distinct reference point from the past that's going to be there.

Some news! Three main Gelfing heroes Rian, Brea, and Deet, being voiced by Taron Egerton, Anya-Taylor Joy and Nathalie Emmanuel. Other cast include some people you may have heard of, like Helena Bonham-Carter, Toby Jones, Alicia Vikander, Simon Pegg, Andy Samberg, Caitriona Balfe, Harris Dickinson, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Shazad Latif, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, Ralph Ineson, Jason Isaacs, Keegan-Michael Key and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson.



The series tells a new epic story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting-edge visual effects. We find that the world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit and an epic battle for the planet begins.

Looks boss.  Going to give the film a rewatch, not seen it since I was a kid.


I've just ordered the 4K BR in anticipation. I watched it almost exactly 7 years ago (BR release) but before that I saw it once, at the cinema, aged 6, in glorious Terrify-o-Vision.
