The Face (it’s back!) talks to puppeteer Beccy Henderson about her work on the wonderful The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. It’s weird, the original film has never really appealed to me – the gelflings always felt a little too uncanny valleyish for my liking – but the series has completely swept me away. Watching the first episode, we just sat there grinning, making cooing sounds at every little bit of design. Haven’t felt that swept up by the craft of a production since The Fellowship of the Ring. Hard to believe something so magical exists. Really looking forward to delving into Dan Wallace’s making of book, which will no doubt find a good home next to Brian Froud’s exceptional The Goblins of Labyrinth.
