TV - His Dark Materials


With all the SDCC fuss around huge franchises like MCU and Star Trek over the weekend, this one may have escaped your notice. Watch the trailer for Season 1 of the TV adaptation of  His Dark Materials...

His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her 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 Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.

With a second season already confirmed and a third very likely, Season 1 of His Dark Materials comes to BBC One and BBC iPlayer later this year.
