Another world, another time, another age. The Crystal of Truth, heart of the planet Thra, is controlled by the cruel and cunning Skeksis who use its power to bend the planet's will and subjugate The Gelfling: the gentle and kind creatures who will start the Age of Resistance and thwart their masters' schemes.Written by
Was so nervous going into this, scared Netflix would change too much and tarnish my childhood. But after the first episode I knew they treated the source material with a ton of respect.
Aside from a few minor, seemingly unnecessary, changes this almost perfectly recreates the magic of the original. Just as creepy...perhaps even more so! Surprisingly mature too, don't think this is suitable for most children but it's perfect for us "kids" who've grown up now.
Please please please make another season!!!
