On the planet Thra, three Gelflings – Rian, Brea and Deet – inspire a rebellion against the Skeksis when they discover a horrifying secret behind their power that threatens all of Thra… <insert creepy Skeksis noise>
A prequel to the 1982 beloved Jim Henson film ‘The Dark Crystal’, the much-anticipated 10-part series explores the world of Thra from the original film. The series includes the voices of Taron Egerton, Eddie Izzard, and Alicia Vikander as Gelflings, with Jason Isaacs and Simon Pegg as Skeksis. It also features wonderful performances from veteran puppeteers Louise Gold and Kevin Clash – among many others, since the fantasy realm of Thra – sumptuously depicted with a perfect retro vibe – is brought to life by masterful modern puppeteering – aspirational craftsmanship and no CGI!
Jocelyn created this fabulous barnacled blue character on the 7-week course in 2014. Congratulations to Jocelyn and to all those involved in the new production…check it out!
