Jason mentioned at the end of the Q and A (for Look Away http://www.theqandapodcast.com/2018/10/ ... saacs.html) that he would be recording this for Netflix next week: More info and teaser here:

After what I gather it's a puppet movie. It looks really good.

He also mentioned that he has other plans that he can't talk about yet... :woot

And he confirmed the "Dr. Bird's Advice For Sad Poets" :wheee

It sounded like he was afraid of jinxing it... :D

I loved the original film The Dark Crystal (even though the first rented video of it I saw might have been a pirate copy because its quality was so bad). It's great to think of Jason involved in a Henson puppet film.

Aw man that's brilliant!!!!
I LOVED "The Dark Crystal"--as did my daughter. I'm thrilled to read that this prequel will employ the same "handwork" as the original!
(and JI too of course!)

Netflix’s highly anticipated and all star The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has set a release date for August 30, according to a report from Deadline.

That's not so far off!

This may be a longer teaser trailer. I listened but couldn't hear Jason's voice. Maybe one of you has better hearing.
