The Cast of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance


Jarrod Fairclough – Way back in 2017 we were treated to news that Netflix was putting together a brand new prequel of The Dark Crystal entitled Age of Resistance.  Today, on the film’s 36th anniversary, Netflix has dropped a tonne of information including photos, character descriptions, and the show’s voice cast!  And boy, did they get some big names.

The cast includes:

Gelfling Characters

  • Caitriona Balfe
  • Helena Bonham-Carter
  • Harris Dinkinson
  • Natalie Dormer
  • Eddie Izzard
  • Theo James
  • Toby Jones
  • Shazad Latif
  • Gugu Mbatha-Raw
  • Mark Strong
  • Alicia Vikander

The Skeksis & Mystics

  • Harvey Fierstein
  • Mark Hamill
  • Ralph Ineson
  • Jason Isaacs
  • Keegan-Michael Key
  • Ólafur Darri Ólafsson
  • Simon Pegg
  • Andy Samberg

Aughra will be voiced by:

  • Donna Kimball

Additional characters will be voiced by puppeteers:

  • Alice Dinnean
  • Louise Gold
  • Neil Sterenberg
  • Victor Yerrid

That’s a heck of a cast.  There’s multiple Academy Award nominated actors there, and it seems like Mark Hamill is going to be a big draw for a lot of people.  With the addition of people like Andy Samberg and Keegan-Michael Key, it appears Age of Resistance might have a few laughs in it as well.


This is Brea, from the noble Vapra who live in the Gelfling capital city.  She’s being voiced by Anya-Taylor Joy.


This is Deet, of the cave-dwelling Grottans who never set foot above ground.  She’s voiced by Game of Thrones star Nathalie Emmanuel.


This is Rian, a Crystal Castle guard from the fierce Stonewood clan.  He’s voiced by Kingsman star Taron Egerton.

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is expected to be released in 2019.
