‘His Dark Materials’ Trailer: HBO/BBC Adaptation of Philip Pullman’s Book Trilogy

Dark Materials

HBO has released a new trailer for Season 1 of His Dark Materials, the series adaptation of Philip Pullman’s critically praised trilogy, co-produced by HBO, BBC, Bad Wolf and New Line Cinema.

Written by Jack Thorne and directed by Tom Hooper, 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.

Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda star. Cast also includes Anne-Marie Duff, Clarke Peters, Ariyon Bakare, Will Keen, father of young lead Dafne Keen, Ian Gelder, Georgina Campbell, Lucian Msamati, James Cosmo, Ruta Gedmintas, Mat Fraser, Geoff Bell, Simon Manyonda as well as young actors Lewin Lloyd, Daniel Frogson and Tyler Howitt.

HBO came on board last September as co-producer and distributor of the BBC fantasy drama series, based on Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of books, Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction.

Executive Producing the series are Dan McCulloch, Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner for Bad Wolf, Philip Pullman, Jack Thorne, Tom Hooper, Deborah Forte, Toby Emmerich and Carolyn Blackwood for New Line Cinema, and Ben Irving and Piers Wenger – BBC One.
