‘His Dark Materials’ Comes To Life In First Teaser Trailer

The TV adaptation of Philip Pullman’s fantasy series His Dark Materials has been in development for years. While no release date is set, the BBC has revealed a teaser of what to expect when it finally premiers.

The first thing that stands out is the talented cast. Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Clarke Peters, and Lin-Manuel Miranda all get their names in the spotlight. His Dark Materials is an eight episode series co-produced by the BBC and HBO. Already picked up for a second season before airing, His Dark Materials is a big budget production for the BBC.  Check out a synopsis below.

“The first season of His Dark Materials follows Lyra (Dafne Keen), a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Lyra’s search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets a determined and courageous boy called Will. Together they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living—and the dead— in their hands.”

I can’t say I have read the source material or even watched the film The Golden Compass, which is based on the first novel in the series. I know the books are highly acclaimed and the cast alone has me intrigued. Dafne Keen really impressed me with her work in Logan and I look forward to seeing her in another project. Check out the teaser below.
