First Look at BBC & HBO's His Dark Materials

Sir Philip Pullman

The show is based on the bestseller, and is set to premiere this fall.

Animals also play a large role in the series as Lyra searches for a lost friend and uncovers an untoward system involving stolen children.

Speaking at a panel at popular culture convention Comic-Con in San Diego, Jane Tranter, the executive producer of His Dark Materials, said critics who had not read the books had made "assumptions" about their content.

In addition to Keene, His Dark Materials will star Ruth Wilson as Marissa Coulter, Lin-Manuel Miranda as Lee Scoresby, and James McAvoy as Lord Asriel.

Dæmons, for those unfamiliar with the trilogy, are one of the most unique and captivating parts of the His Dark Materials world.

Omar says she won't stop criticizing Trump
About a hundred supporters gathered around Omar when she arrived at the baggage claim at MSP. But according to CNN , Omar didn't mention Trump's name once during her Minnesota Town Hall.

The team behind the upcoming BBC/HBO co-production will no doubt be hoping for a more positive reception this time around and, in what looks to be a promising sign, the latest trailer is hitting all of the right notes with the majority of audiences.

"Reading them I was a massive fan, in adapting them I've increasingly felt in awe of them". "He's attacking a particular type of control ... to keep people in the dark and not allow people to be free. They're in a really special place in my heart". Ian Gelder (Queers) will be portraying Librarian Scholar Charles, Ruth Wilson (The Affair) as the glamorous Mrs. Coulter, Will Keen (Wolf Hall) as Father MacPhail, Ariyon Bakare (Life) as Lord Boreal, and Georgina Campbell (Black Mirror) as journalist Adele Starminster.

"[Pullman] is not attacking belief, he's not attacking faith or religion or the church per se", she said.

Pullman's novel was also adapted into a 2007 feature-length film directed by Chris Weitz that ended up a flop. He agreed with Tranter's comments about the series being important for all ages, adding that it's very timely in 2019.

A specific release date for His Dark Materials is not yet available, but fans can expect it by the end of the year.
