HBO and BBC have worked together to bring Sir Philip Pullman's young adult novels, His Dark Materials trilogy, to life in a new television series and debuted the first extended trailer on Thursday.
Today at the San Diego ComicCon, the nights held a panel where they showed off the new recording. It has been a teaser trailer, but this is our first look at some of the plot points from the first book The Golden Compass, along with character interactions and locations.
Contributing Dafne Keen (Logan), James McAvoy (Days of Futures Past), and Lin Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), the trailer is a fast paced glimpse of what comes from the show.
If there is something like the book, you can expect cool-looking animals ̵
His Dark Materials series has been customized before. The Golden Compass movie, which came out in 2007, was a miss by critics and fans. There is a lot of riding on this series, not just because of how popular the books are (though important), but because of how disappointing the latest adaptation was.
His dark materials come to HBO in the US and BBC iPlayer in the United States of America this fall. Hopefully we will see more details and more followers in the coming months.
How do you feel about this new adaptation? I'm a little nervous, it can suck, but I'm interested in what you all think. Please let me know in the comments!
