Per HBO, the first season follows Lyra (Daphne Keen), a seemingly ordinary but fearless young woman from another world. Lyra's search for her loved one uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and a much needed ally in Will, a determined young boy with whom she encounters extraordinary beings, risky secrets, and worlds not of our own.
His Dark Materials is expected to premiere in 2019 on HBO.
The clip also provides a very quick glimpse of Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns) as balloonist Lee Scoresby. Last fall, the BBC announced that it had renewed the series for a second season and that it was bringing on HBO as a co-producer.
You might recall The Golden Compass, a 2007 film based on the same source material, in which an immensely badass polar bear is featured prominently.
Adaptation of Sir Philip Pullman's acclaimed series of novels. Lyra's journey takes her on a considerable adventure across worlds and lands her in the midst of a massive war being waged across existence. Little do they know that the fate of the living and the dead are in their hands. The first season will cover the events of The Golden Compass, while the next seasons will adapt The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass.
HBO has released its official His Dark Materials tease, previewing the series coming to both the BBC and HBO.
When the glamorous and mesmeric Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson) enters Lyra's life, she embarks upon a unsafe journey of discovery from Oxford to London. After she's adopted by a wealthy woman (Ruth Wilson), she learns that there are many evil operations in her universe.
