Netflix attempts to take on Game of Thrones & Lord of the Rings

Game of Thrones was the most popular television series to come out so far. It was produced by HBO and only available for streaming on HBO GO and Hulu. This leaves Netflix subscribers at a significant disadvantage. Now that the show has ended, fans of GOT is looking for the next big fantasy drama.

Netflix might have the answer to that. They have been busy working on a series called The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. It is the prequel to 1982 movie, The Dark Crystal. It follows three Gelflings as they discover the secret behind the Skeksis’ power, and go on a quest to start a rebellion and save the world. The series borrows elements from Game of Thrones, Lords of The Rings and even the MMORPG game League of Legends. The series will have ten episodes and set to release on August 30th, 2019. After watching the trailer, I can assume that the visuals will be impressive.
