Netflix’s ‘The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance’ already had quite an impressive cast but in rounding out the series we’ve seen an influx of big names. Lending their voices to the show we’ll now hear Lena Headey (‘Game of Thrones’), Benedict Wong (‘Avengers: Endgame’), Awkwafina (‘Crazy Rich Asians’), Sigourney Weaver (‘Alien’), Hannah John-Kamen (‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’), and Dave Goelz (‘The Dark Crystal’) as characters as well. While we’ve learned the names of their characters, their roles are still a mystery.
The inclusion of Goelz is an actor tie-in to the original 1982 film where he was a performer for General, Garthim Master and Fizzgig, a Friendly Monster. He won’t be reprising either of these parts and will instead voice a new character named Baffi who we currently have no knowledge of past a name. Also in ‘The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance’ we’ll hear Awkwafina as a character called The Collector, Headey as Maudra Fara, Hannah John-Kamen as Naia, Benedict Wong as The General, and Sigourney Weaver as The Myth-Speaker.
The cast already consists of such names as Mark Hamill, Anya Taylor-Joy, Natalie Dormer, and Taron Egerton which just scratches the surface of the star power involved in this project.

Based on The Dark Crystal, Jim Henson’s groundbreaking 1982 feature film, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance tells a new epic story, set many years before the events of the movie, and realized using classic puppetry with cutting edge visual effects. The world of Thra is dying. The Crystal of Truth is at the heart of Thra, a source of untold power. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land. When three Gelfling uncover the horrific truth behind the power of the Skeksis, an adventure unfolds as the fires of rebellion are lit, and an epic battle for the planet begins.
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance premieres August 30.
