Like anyone who spent their formative years in the ‘70s and ‘80s, I have been familiar with Jim Henson and his muppets. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that in a way my generation was raised by Jim Henson and his lovable, multi-colored friends because of “Sesame Street,” a daily staple for a growing, creative mind and possibly the best children’s show to ever grace international airwaves.

Lisa Henson, Jim Henson’s daughter and the show’s executive producer, says, “The way it’s developed, even the effects that are CG effects, we’ve now complimented those by realizing them in a dual capacity. Where we have the puppet version of it and the CG version of it. So there’s almost nothing in the whole series that exists only as a CG effect.”

Brian Froud, the original conceptual designer of “Dark Crystal” once again returns to the fantastical world of Thra, bringing his unique, fantastical vision to bear. This time around, however, is extra special, for him as well as fans of the world of Jim Henson. His son, Toby Froud, who played the little baby brother in another Henson hit, Labyrinth, is now all grown up and a skilled puppeteer and creature fabricator in his own right. He now lends his talents at the Jim Henson workshop, bringing his father’s creations to life.

“The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance” begins streaming on Aug. 30. (All photos from Netflix)
