Youngest daughter of All-Maudra Mayrin, Princess Brea was spared the duties of an heir in training: those responsibilities falling upon eldest sister Seladon. Where her middle sister Tavra took up the sword to become a warrior, Brea’s insatiable curiosity propelled her into more academic pursuits.
Brea’s freedom often set her at odds with duty-bound Seladon, who begrudged their mother’s indulgence and was frustrated by what she deemed Brea’s childlike naivety. When Brea’s thirst for knowledge lead her to a profound discovery, Seladon’s heart was hardened by jealousy and hurt. For beneath the very throne of the All-Maudra lay a secret that would shatter the Gelfling subservience to their Skeksis lords.
In the tumult that followed, Brea would find herself pitted against the wrathful Lords of the Crystal, forced to flee her home and be labelled a traitor in the wake of unimaginable tragedy. Despite pain and loss, she would rebuild bonds of love and rise to fight for Thra.
"These collectibles were a dream to art direct. I feel like a Skeksis sitting at the banquet table, ready to feast on the amazing opportunities before me. There is so much to choose from!" - Daniel Falconer - Art Director & Senior Concept Designer
OUR DARK CRYSTAL COLLECTIBLES
So rich and visionary was Jim Henson’s 1982 passion project that it inspired dreamers across the creative arts, including a whole generation of film effects artists now working at Weta Workshop. Released at a time when many of our crew were young and beginning to explore their own creative energies, The Dark Crystal was an eye-opener: it was possible to bring imaginary worlds to life, and it could be a career! For years, those of us who had fallen in love with this world hoped that someday Thra might return to our screens. Thanks to Netflix, it has, and now we have the chance to express our fandom by creating super faithful, exquisitely detailed collectible figures and prop replicas from The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.
