TechnoRetro Dads: From The Dark Crystal to Age of Resistance

by TechnoRetro Dads

Another world…
Another time…
In the age of youthful wonder…

Thirty-seven years ago, we were young and naïve, until The Dark Crystal cracked open our imaginations to the mystical world of Thra. Since then, we have longed to see more of that world on the screen — until now, as The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance waits around the corner…

From the second episode of TechnoRetro Dads until just a couple weeks ago, shazbazzar and JediShua have been covering news and rumors about The Dark Crystal from movies, books, toys, and games.  For 82 minutes this Monday morning, relive the past through six seasons of TechnoRetro Dads and take another look at the only official appearance of Thra onscreen before The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance emerges on Netflix this Friday.

In the NEWS…

At the Movies: The Dark Crystal

JediShua and shazbazzar watch The Dark Crystal again this week and focus on the “hero’s journey” and the characters from the world of Thra.

Family Circle: The Dark Crystal FLASHBACK

Two families in two different cities across the country watched The Dark Crystal “together” on Skype.  Then the TechnoRetro Dads talked about their experiences with the movie as kids and as fathers.  The initial discussion from April 2013 has been remastered (from available recordings) for this exciting episode.
