The original film is a classic hero’s journey about restoring a once-vibrant world to its former glory. The new series focuses on the dark days before the dawn, in which the surviving Gelflings and the more benevolent Mystics must organize a rebellion against the sinister Skeksis, who are poisoning the planet of Thra with their corrupt magic. According to a press release, it follows a trio of Gelflings named Rian (Kingsman‘s Taron Egerton), Brea (The Witch‘s Anya Taylor Joy), and Deet (Game of Thrones‘s Nathalie Emmanuel), who discover the shady figures threatening Thra and decide to do something about it.
