The His Dark Materials' SDCC Trailer Is Grand As It Is Gorgeous


A new trailer is here, hot on the heels of HBO's Comic-Con presentation.

A brand-new trailer dropped today for the upcoming HBO series His Dark Materials.

The Hamilton creator will play adventurer Lee Scoresby in the series, which is an adaption of Sir Philip Pullman's trilogy of novels and is a joint production between the BBC and United States cable network HBO. Main character Lyra Belacqua's (Keen) daemon is a snow-white ermine voiced by Archie Barnes.

"His Dark Materials" comes to HBO this autumn.

Also, 171 production platforms, or 26%, have not resumed operating as workers continue to return to offshore platforms, BSEE said. Brent crude futures LCOc1 were up 7 cents, or 0.1%, at $66.55 a barrel by 0426 GMT after dropping earlier in the session.

The Victorian era-inspired background of His Dark Materials sees humans living in concert with their daemons, which are sort of like animal familiars and are physical manifestations of their souls. As she journeys through other worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will (Amir Wilson), a determined and courageous boy. However, with a second season already greenlit, if the emotion is there, the effects are there, and more than anything the armored polar bear is there, people may soon be asking, "what's the next His Dark Materials?".

His Dark Materials executive producer Jane Tranter had a firm statement to make about the religious angle, saying the books have are often misunderstood, particularly by those who haven't read them. "It doesn't equate to any particular church or form or religion in our world and we should be clear on that".

"I just felt it was time", Tranter added. "I think that all of those different adaptations have all been brilliant in their different ways, but the real estate of contemporary television - being able to stretch those books out and really be able to sound every note that Philip Pullman sounded in the novels - I just felt it was time".

A movie adaptation of The Golden Compass, starring Nicole Kidman as Mrs. Coulter, Daniel Craig as Lord Asriel, and Sam Elliott as Lee Scoresby, was released in 2007.
