10 episodes is probably enough for you but for the Marvel episodes 10 is not enough, I'm glad they're at least a minimum of 12 episodes I wish they were a little more.
ten episodes each of them running about 60 min is good for me.
more time to tell the story.
and yes there are people in it. in the long shots. two children playing jen and kira. god do these people do their research???? guess not!
Yes! Yes! Yes! Totally excited! I even have some of the comic books, the prequel novel, the kids book that came with a record and a Chamberlain action figure!
Knowing nothing as of yet regarding the upcoming series plot I can't wait for a screen junkies movie or tv fight for the voice cast. I REALLY want the Farscape cast. They absolutely must have Claudia Black, her voice is unmistakable and she just keeps doing awesome characters. And OMG can you imagine Wayne Pygram as a Skeksis? If you don't know these actors for their work the power of you tube is before you. Look up Scorpius Farscape, THAT is your villain.
So a real series! I thought it was just a making of.
people were in the original. landstriders
I've been waiting for this for literally decades. Now all they have to do is something with the Labyrinth and all my Henson dreams will be fulfilled
Feck'n droooling for it... gives it to me...NOW!... and yes... the pressure is on NETFLIX to deliver and not destroy the hopes and dreams of millions of fans out there! Or there will be a Haakskeekah!!!
Hey blondie , do ya really need to talk so loud?
One of my favorite movies since i was 4 for 31 years and one of the movies that made me a Sci-fi/fantasy geek! plus came out in the year i was born which was a great year for geek culture movies, the movie has one of the best scores ever as i own the 2-disc CD soundtrack and it's Henson's masterpiece (I like Labyrinth don't get me wrong but i think TDC is a better movie).
This prequel show should be interesting like the graphic novels and books telling the history of Thra, gelfling society, how the crystal cracked, how Skeksis declaired war and all that. Should be nice with practical effects returning with little CGI.
I'm excited, but I'm also worried. That teaser, at the end of it, the Skeksi was wearing very sci-fi looking armor, but this is supposed to be high fantasy! Even Augra, with her planetarium, was the most scientific person there, really, and she was still very esoteric and magical - as part of, rather than in spite of. It was an age of WONDER, not an age of SCIENCE. The Skeksis wore elaborate robes, and if they had wore anything armor-like at all, then it was always very organic. Carapace from giant bugs like the Gartham. Bones. They had spines along their backs - which you can see when they stripped the Chamberlain. (That was horrifying to see, btw.) I have concerns that the modern aesthetic is going to be imposed upon this classic and... I really don't want this potentially wonderful thing to be completely ruined by, effectively, bad costume decisions. That's what I'm worried about.
The shear enormity of this is mind blowing. Taking my favorite movie from my childhood and attempting to make a series? And a prequel at that...I don't know. But with the talent they have behind this I am holding onto hope. I hope they don't screw this up!

love the dark crystal saw this in my recommended list....watched maybe 2minutes of this vid an had to stop omg the chick in the middle pulling all kinds of faces whilst talking fml >_<
Yes!!! I am excited!
The first Ang Lee 'The Hulk" was spectacular and I loved it but that Marvel remake "The Incredible Hulk" was absolute garbage and I cant say enough bad things about it. And, like she said, the original Clash of the titans is still one of my favorites and the new ones are fun to watch, I suppose, but really terrible remakes so I have to say that I am disappointed deep down in my soul to know that the Jerk who ruined those movies is going to ruin the Dark Crystal too. What a damn waist!~
