The prequel will use the same style of practical effects as the original movie.
Netflix posted a surprise teaser for the series, featuring concept art and puppets in the style of the Jim Henson classic. The new series will use similar live-action filmmaking, working with the Jim Henson Company and Brian Froud, the fantasy artist who worked on the original movie.
