Doubling down after the (somewhat badly received) Game of Thrones finale, HBO has released a trailer for its new fantasy series His Dark Materials.
Based on the popular book trilogy by Philip Pullman, the series will centre around a young girl named Lyra Belacqua (played by Dafne Keen of Logan fame) as she travels through an alternate world to find her friend Roger, who’s been kidnapped and taken to the Arctic to be experimented on. “Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust,” reads the synopsis. “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.”
Co-stars include James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anne-Marie Duff, Clarke Peters, Ariyon Bakare, Will Keen, Ian Gelder, Georgina Campbell, Lewin Lloyd, Lucian Msamati, James Cosmo, Daniel Frogson, Tyler Howitt, Ruta Gedmintas, and Mat Fraser.
