I would really like to take a second to appreciate the similarities to one of Jim Henson's other works. I love how the Gruenaks look like Ludo from the Labyrinth. The Arathim also form faces to talk similar to the helping hands. There were other lines that were repeated from The Labyrinth to the AoR. One that stuck out to me was "Turn back before it's too late". I really enjoyed seeing all of these similarities.
What's on your mind?
In the show they got the whole story wrong so screw you netflix
Does anyone know because he is only in the movie
You know that weird rock creature from age of resistance what is he?
I need to know
How do you think Jen met the Mystics?
Hey, are the books like Shadows of the Dark Crystal by JM Lee canon? I am so confused if it is because it says in the first book that Naia and Gurjin have two younger sisters named Eliona and Pemma. Also, my preview in Shadows of the Dark Crystal says that Rian has a younger sister named Mythra, But they don't have their own pages on the Wiki, so are the characters canon or not?
We all have been wondering, I believe. What's the context between the series and the movie? What happens in the Dark Crystal movie tells us all Gelfling we got to know in the series is dead, which is sad since we all started to love them. In the series (episode 10) when Deet has her vision about the darkening, we see a lady wearing pink carrying a baby. After what we see in the movie (when Kira dreamfasts with Jen) this is Kira's mother. The face of this lady looks a lot like Brea. It could also be Seladon, speaking of the dark make-up she is wearing. This makes me believe maybe Seladon was taken by the Garthims first, and Brea was wearing her makeup to honor her. Which means Brea is probably Kira's mother. But what about the father? Even though they don't have a lot of moments in the series I believe it may be Kylan. He has the same green stripe in his hair as Kira does, and if you look close at the series he always cares a lot about Brea, which makes it easy to believe he may be in love with her. The only other boy Brea has a small moment with is Rey'kir, but that doesn't seem right. So I believe Kira's mother is Brea, and her father is Kylan. (People say Deet is her mother because she can talk to animals, but remember that the Podling learned her how to do that, not her mother)
About Jen, this is harder. If you compare Jen and Rian, they look a lot the same. If you look at Jen's shirt he even has the Stonewood Clan symbol on it's front. But who would the mother be? I'd like to believe it's Deet, but what happens in the last episode of the series, I don't really think she will even survive with all the dark inside of her. This keeps being a mystery.
If there will ever be a season two we may be able to know.
Thank you for reading 💜
Hello, I've been looking for a book on all the mythology of the dark crystal universe, but I don't know which to get, or even where to start. This is for a Christmas gift my sister.
Please help! any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hello! I only recently joined this Wiki, and one thing I'm wondering is, shouldn't we have a page about the online short The Promise (link), which was the winner of a fanfilm competition organized by the Jim Henson Company itself and is hosted on their official YouTube channel? Whether it's canonical is another kettle of fish (although in point of fact I see no reason not to consider it canonial), as is whether we should have pages on the other fanfilms in the competition (which are also hosted on the YouTube channel), but we definitely should have a page about "The Promise", hmmm?
I think we have all figured out that Jen and Kira’s parents would most likely be thee main characters in AoR. But which ones? Well let’s see...
We have seen that Deet has her way with animals even before she was gifted with the Sanctuary Tree’s power. So that is a strong indicator to Kira as we know the she can speak to animals as well. So Deet (possibly) Kira’s mother. Now as everyone has seen in the show Deet and Rian both have a strong relationship between them. So that leads me to Rian. In the show he was always the bravest of the Gelfling. And unlike Jen, Kira didn’t think twice about hopping in a boat to go and save Thra. Also, we see that Rian is always (mostly just trying to) dreamfast(ing). And as we remember in the movie the way Jen and Kira got to know each other was through dreamfasting (which Jen has know clue what it was). So Rian (possibly) Kira’s father.
On to Jen. For Jen’s (possible) mother, Brea. In the movie we see that Jen has been taught to read by his master, Ursu. Now we know that his parent couldn’t have taught him to read because they were dead, but his love for reading could have definitely been passed down through Brea. Now for Jen’s (possible) father... Kylan. Now you may be thinking “why would it be Kylan he doesn’t show the same features as Jen.” Well, he might not show them but sure does have them. You may not know this but Kylan’s father was actually Stonewood and his mother was Spriton. The blue in Jen’s hair is most definitely Stonewood features, which was a recessive gene in Kylan and then past down to Jen. And finally, as we see in episode 6 “By Gelfling Hand” Kylan has the same exact Firca as Jen did in the movie which could have been given to him right before their deaths.
Tell me what you think down below!
Which gelfing clans did Jen and Kira come from?
What characters from any Dark Crystal Lore (canon or not canon) would you like to see in Season 2?
Personally, I'm a big fan of the Crystalline Eminence, but this type of character is usually my favorite in any story. I'm really interested in other people's favorites and the reasoning behind why, so I encourage you to discuss in the comments!

While I’m aware that “Legends of the Dark Crystal” is no longer canon, I’m hoping that they might incorporate some of the its characters into AOR. Otherwise, in my opinion, it would just be a waste of some really awesome characters!
I liked Deet the most from the start and so I am wondering what the powers of the sanctuary tree and/or the darkening she absorbed is doing to her.
Will she be sick or turn evil?
Did the plants around her die when she walked away?
and why did she walk away?
Why did she see a vision of herself in the castle? would she have to go there to get healed?
So I grew up watching the original The Dark Crystal in the 90s and has NO IDEA there was other content out there about the world of Thra?! Watching Age of Resistance reminded me of how much I loved this world growing up and I’m SO EXCITED that it has more depth and lore than I ever could have imagined.
Where do you recommend I start? For comics, is there anywhere (ideally free) to read online? I’ve seen mention of some content being canon and some not—which is which? Tell me everything you know, crystal fam.
I wonder Why was Hup alone with Archer when he woke up and jumped off the cliff? Where was UrGoh and the Heretic, when and why did they disappear?
