September 4 question - If you could pick one place in the world to sit and write your next story, where would it be and why?
That is where I would love to write and play my guitar for a week or month or more!
Here is September’s IWSG Instagram:
The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance
This NetFlix series takes place many years before the events in the 1982 movie, The Dark Crystal.
Returns to the world of Thra, where three Gelfling discover the horrifying secret behind the Skeksis' power, and set out to ignite the fires of rebellion and save their world.
The series also stays true to the original film in tone, style, and concept. With more time to explore, they fill out a complex world, giving it depth and detail. It also sets up the events leading up to the destruction of the Gelflings as well as explaining how the Skeksis gained power over the Crystal.
The voice cast is stunning – Simon Pegg (as the Chamberlain), Eddie Izzard, Helena Bonham Carter, Lena Headey, Benedict Wong, Mark Hamill, Sigourney Weaver – and the list goes on and on and on…
The series dropped August 30 on NetFlix and I’ve been spacing out the episodes so I can enjoy it for at least a week. (So I haven’t reached the end yet.) But if you enjoyed the movie, dig fantasy and adventure, or just want something different in your Muppets, then definitely check it out.
