The BBC has revealed the first teaser for their upcoming adaptation of Philip Pullman’s fantastic Trilogy, His Dark Materials.
While Pullman’s novels have been brought to life on the big screen before, The BBC is deciding to take their own stab at the iconic novel trilogy which is set to feature some big names including, Dafne Keen, Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Lee Scoresby, and Clarke Peters.
The adaptation began as an eight-episode order which was then given a second season not too long into production.
As per the book trilogy, His Dark Materials tells the tale of Lyra Belacqua who travels to the Arctic to find someone who’s missing only to stumble across a church who have been studying something called Dust or Rusakov Particles, a particle which is associated with human consciousness.
Having read the books years ago, the plot is quite fuzzy, but I’m excited to see how The BBC adapts this series into a show.
