    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.

    I remember that in 2015 James Macvoy ​​knew in an interview that they would make this adaptation, he said he wanted to play some character, apparently he got it. James Macvoy ​​is simply a brilliant actor and surely will play Lord Asriel very well.

    I'm surprised that the Golden Compass is getting the TV show after what happened with the movie and the Catholic Church

    I wish they would make a HBO series of Chronicles of Ancient Darkness (Wolf Brother)... it should've been adapted years ago into movies or a show but here I am 10 years later still awaiting it. Can't believe it.

    PS. as for Golden Compass I'm happy it was remade, they completely dropped it after the first movie. I'm just sort of tired of remakes when there are untouched original stories out there. Also not fully on board with the cast but we'll see.

      @menckencynic so just because it's girl/female lead then it's political how about you shove your political correctness in your ass in the books the girl is the centre of the story as long it's good then what's the problem gosh you snowflakes are killing entertainment.

      @DIY_Diablo The Golden Compass failed because it was fucking awful pretentious shit that followed the same "Look, it's a girl this time, not some icky boy with glasses" political archetype. I have no idea what the books are like and never will, mainly because the movie successfully inoculated me from ever wanting to try.

      If you think a movie would lose a single viewer because the Vatican disliked it, it's like you were born on Mars and only watch Earth through a telescope. Or maybe you were born in a cave, and one day started getting Wi-Fi access: but it must have been literally today, because no one who has ever seen our world would think getting boycotted by the Vatican would be anything but *coveted* by movie makers, who have a chance to get free publicity and many viewers for their little political side-projects.

      I was making a joke. It's what *all* these projects do now, and why they're boring as tapwater.

      It’s not a new series, it’s based on a book series called “His Dark Materials”. However the movie, The Golden Compass was a big flop because it was boycotted by the Vatican - because of the religious and scientific representation. So the movie lost a lot of the original information, enguiniety and charm that was provided in the books. Now the BBC and HBO have decided to reboot and reshoot it as a series however not avoiding the big topics that the movies skirted around.

    There's alot of big names in this and I'm excited to see it but the movie will forever hold a dear place in my heart. And, I know that it's an unpopular opinion, but I liked how it was different to the book. I much prefer the cast of the movie than this but I'll watch anyway as a diehard HDM fan

  • gnilttbs

    It looks horrific and cheap in many ways (cast, cinematography &c.), but if I have to go into one: why does Mrs Coulter seem like she's been portrayed like the boring old clichéd, one-side psychopathic bitch of a villain? And she's blonde, for fuck's sake-she had been described as having black hair in the first three books, yes, but Pullman himself later said that he was wrong about that; and he even rectified that in 'La Belle Sauvage' by describing her as blonde.
    The film got many things wrong, but the cast simply wasn't one of those things: Kidman (she quite embodied Mrs Coulter), Richards, Craig, Elliott &c were all perfect in their roles. But this series... one casting choice worse than the other. It is like they were actively trying to cast the worst-fitting actor possible for each role. Atrocious.

    As much as I adore James McAvoy as an actor I really can't stop comparing him with Daniel Craig, I think he really had the light of power and ambition in his eyes, typical of Lord Asriel. But I guess I'll have to wait before judging. However it seems a super beautiful adaptation! I'm just kinda worried for the next seasons, the golden compass is the "easiest" of the three books to be put on screen, but I want to see how they will approach all the philosophical and theological things that are more presente in the other two books... For examples the question of the angels and the authority.
