Netflix did more than show off what they’ve been working on with the new Dark Crystal TV series that premieres next month, they gave audiences the entire first episode.

The star-studded cast and crew also came on stage to share their thoughts on bringing the cult classic to the small screen for a new generation.

“The amount of craft that goes into the making of the puppets, the artistry that goes into those creatures, and then the guys who operate them.  We arrive and it’s there. It’s inspiring in itself, the work that everyone else has done kind of feeds your performance,” said Taron Egerton.

In this stunning new prequel, three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power, and set out on an epic journey to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.
