  • [WATCH] 'His Dark Materials' Trailer HBO/BBC Series Based On Books

HBO has released a new trailer for its upcoming adaptation of His Dark Materials, an adaptation of Sir Philip Pullman's well-loved trilogy of fantasy novels.

Philip Pullman's series of novels - which consists of Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass - follows Lyra, an orphan who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined. That question of good and evil becomes a central theme in the His Dark Materials series, which begins as a standard fantasy child-adventure and transforms into an all-out Biblical epic. Things are even worse than Lyra could ever have imagined, however, as during her search she stumbles upon a sinister organization responsible for the disappearance of children.

The Golden Compass was previously adapted for the big screen in 2007 to poor critical reception.

The King's Speech director Tom Hooper will direct the eight-part series. But I'm starting to warm to the dark settings, because the first book is loaded with intrigue and twisty mysteries that lend to dim hallways and hushed conversations.

Keen will be playing the main character Lyra with Lin Manuel-Miranda (Hamilton, Mary Poppins Returns) as Lee Scoresby, McAvoy as Lyra's uncle, Lord Asriel and Clarke Peters (The Wire) playing The Master who trains Lyra.

As Vinnie Mancuso wrote regarding the last trailer, "His Dark Materials takes place in a Victorian-inspired alternate reality in which humans live side by side with the living embodiments of their souls, known as daemons".
