The original film told the story of two pixie-like Gelflings, the last of their species, who needed to reunite the Crystal, the source of all power in their world of Thra, with a sliver that had splintered off from it.

It was the only way to defeat the evil, bird-like Skeksis. The Skeksis were killers who stole ‘the essence’ – life force – of the Gelflings and another race of creatures, the diminutive and peaceful Podlings, in order to stay alive. 

The new series, which like the original was filmed in the UK, goes back in time by several generations.

The new Netflix film boasts an all-star voice cast including Awkwafina, Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham Carter, Eddie Izzard, Simon Pegg, Mark Hamill and Taron Egerton. 

It’s the height of the Gelfling civilisation, when they still think of the Skeksis and their leader skekSo (voiced by Jason Isaacs) as rulers they can appease.

But the power of the Crystal has begun to wane and the Skeksis can no longer get the life force they need from it, so are seeking a new way to stave off old age. Suddenly the creatures they rule over begin to look like prey.

The series focuses on a small band of rebels who realise something evil is happening. 

Rian is the Gelfling son of the Head Guard for the Skeksis. He’s loyal to his masters until a chance encounter means he sees the depths of depravity the Skeksis will go to to prolong their own lives.      

The ten-part series will debut on Netflix on August 30.
