The voice cast of the highly anticipated new Netflix series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance has officially been announced — and it’s a star-studded affair.

Based on the iconic 1982 film from Jim Henson, the series returns to the world of Thra as three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis’ power and set out on an adventure to save their world. The 10-episode series takes place “many years” before the events of the cult classic film.

Starring as the three Gelfling heroes, Taron Egerton takes on the role of Rain, while Anya Taylor Joy voices as Brea and Game of Thrones alum Nathalie Emmanuel stars as Deet.
