SDCC 2019: ‘His Dark Materials’ Trailer Released
HBO has much to do to keep their subscribers happy. Most were subscribed for Game of Thrones, and there will be at least another year before we see the prequel series’ pilot air. Because of that, HBO is kicking it into high gear with other original content.
Enter His Dark Materials.
During the show’s panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego on Thursday, HBO and BBC debuted a new trailer for their upcoming television adaptation.
Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, His Dark Materials is set in an alternate reality in which humans go through life alongside a daemon, a physical manifestation of the human soul. The series follows a young orphan named Lyra who discovers a secret that leads her down a dangerous road.
His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen (Logan) as Lyra Belacqua, Ruth Wilson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) as Marisa Coulter, James McAvoy (Split, Dark Phoenix) as Lord Asriel, Clarke Peters (The Wire) as Dr. Carne, and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) as Lee Scoresby.

His Dark Materials is set to start airing on HBO late this year.
