Teaser Trailer: The BBC’s “His Dark Materials”
The BBC has released the first footage from its upcoming series “His Dark Materials,” a new TV adaptation of Philip Pullman’s fantasy novel trilogy and one that hopes to go further than the previous film adaptation “The Golden Compass” which was a famous flop.
The stories are about the coming of age of two children, Lyra and Will, who move through parallel universes. “Logan” star Dafne Keen will be playing the main character Lyra with Lin Manuel-Miranda as Lee Scoresby, James McAvoy as Lyra’s uncle Lord Asriel, Ruth Wilson as the glamorous Mrs. Coulter, Clarke Peters as The Master who trains Lyra, Ian Gelder as Librarian Scholar Charles, Will Keen as Father MacPhail, Ariyon Bakare as Lord Boreal, and Georgina Campbell as journalist Adele Starminster.
Jack Thorne penned and Tom Hooper is directed some of the eight-episode first season with Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner producing. The show is slated to premiere sometime later this year.
