Full Trailer of HBO’s HIS DARK MATERIALS Released at SDCC

Philip Pullman’s words come to life in the visually-stunning trailer for HIS DARK MATERIALS

On Thursday at SDCC, His Dark Materials stars James McAvoy (Lord Asriel), Dafne Keen (Lyra), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Lee Scoresby), and Ruth Wilson (Mrs. Coulter) gifted fans a sneak peek at their upcoming HBO project. Their talent plus the stunning animation makes the series a must-see.

His Dark Materials is based off a trilogy of novels–The Golden CompassThe Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass–by Philip Pullman. The books follow two children’s journey as they explore parallel universes.

Over a decade ago, a movie adaptation of The Golden Compass was released, but not well-received enough for the studio to continue the series. In Fall 2019, HBO hopes to find more success.

Watch the trailer at the top of the post.
