Children of the ’80s and ’90s, prepare to start weeping with joy because Netflix just announced that a prequel series to the late Jim Henson’s iconic film The Dark Crystal is in the works. The streaming platform has teamed up with The Jim Henson Company to create the 10-episode prequel series, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which will go into production later this summer in the U.K.

Age of Resistance will take place on planet Thra, years before the events from The Dark Crystal take place. According to Netflix, the story centers around three Gelfling (elf-like creatures), who discover the horrible secret behind the Skeksis’ power and set on an adventure to start a rebellion (and hopefully save the world).

To show fans *just* how amazing The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is going to be, Netflix released a teaser.
