A new Netflix miniseries that is going to be a sort of prequel to the original film, following a group of Gelflings that discover the secret of the Mystics and Skeksis and set out to try to save the world. If one remembers in The Dark Crystal all the gelflings but Jen and Kira have died. That means this prequel's gonna be rather dark. Pros, it seems like the miniseries will do its best to honor Henson and use practical puppetry effects and only cgi as little as possible. It's also being done in part by the Jim Henson Company themselves. Cons, the director of the show,, Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans remake, first two Transporter films, Now You See Me) is not really known for making groundbreaking films but is known for overindulging on the cgi...so...hmmm Here's a fun little video of Jim Henson talking about The Dark Crystal that Netflix is using as a promo for their miniseries. I also enjoyed this discussion about the miniseries on Screen Junkies News.
