The Gelfings discover the secret behind the Skeksis' power, and set out on an epic adventure to try and start a rebellion and in turn save their world.

Taron Egerton, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Nathalie Emmanuel lead the voice cast, as Rian, Brea and Deet, three Gelfling heroes.

Set on a distant planet long ago, the film follows an orphan Gelfling named Jen as he embarks on a quest to find the missing shard of the Dark Crystal, a power source that once brought balance to the universe, which is now awash with chaos. Also portraying Gelfling characters in the series are Caitriona Balfe, Helena Bonham-Carter, Harris Dickinson, Natalie Dormer, Eddie Izzard, Theo James, Toby Jones, Shazad Latif, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mark Strong, and Alicia Vikander. It's not specifically said who will be voicing those characters, but the Skesis will include the voice talents of Harvey Fierstein, Mark Hamill, Ralph Ineson, Jason Isaacs, Keegan-Michael Key, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Simon Pegg, and Andy Samberg. But it is damaged, corrupted by the evil Skeksis, and a sickness spreads across the land.
