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.
