    Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, 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.

    This looks like it will do the source material justice. I went and saw The Golden Compass in the theater. I'm surprised I didn't get my ass beat by some dad, due to the stream of curse words that came out of my mouth. It is such a great series of books, but you can't ignore the anti religious element.

    This is the Torchwood crowd with HBO money so I have high hopes for the right tone: like a grown up Doctor Who, with the humanistic and revolutionary message safe, and the the cruelty intact.

    I thought both Mrs. Colter and Lyra were blond or blondish. Although I like the casting for Lyra, feels like the right character.

      @Liloh Loves Subtitles yeah, you are right, just checked in my old books and the book of dust. Weird. Although I guess she could dye her hair over the years. Also her monkey's golden fur is mentioned so many times I guess the image blurred into one for me.)

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles Day ago +1

      Originally, Mrs. Coulter had very dark hair! in my copies of the books which were published 2 decades ago, her hair is dark. But apparently during the production of The Golden Compass movie, Pullman decided he liked Kidman's blonde hair so much that he wanted to change Coulter's hair colour :o I think I read that in some later publications of the books, her hair was made blonde, and I think it's blonde in The Book of Dust (which I haven't read yet). Lyra's was always blonde, however as they have both a dark-haired Asriel and a dark-haired Coulter in this tv series, they may have thought dark hair would be more suitable for Lyra too? :)

    Looks like something that could be good if they just got rid of the children.

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 22 hours ago

      @Andreas Sjöström -haha well I'm not sure how much you're joking about the kids and if you'd be legitimately interested if it wasn't for them, but I made a little video on my channel about the trailer with a basic rundown of the story etc if you'd be interested in knowing more about it to see if you'd want to see it or not? :) The books themselves are very dark (kids getting tortured etc) and some of the things that happen in the third book (depicting the main girl) were even censored in the US for being too 'extreme'. If the TV series sticks to the source material and keeps the story dark and cruel, it could be a legitimately good TV show!! (it could also be utter trash, totally depends on how they adapt the story!!) :) Oh and I'm not saying I condone cruelty to kids or anything, haha, just trying to emphasize that the books themselves aren't too 'kiddie' despite having a lot of young main characters!

      Caio Teixeira Day ago

      @Liloh Loves Subtitles yeah i was about to comment this on my answer before but chose to spare you of my rambling =)
      Unfortunately most adaptions now a days suffer from it. Be it because they want to have a diversity check box when it doenst fit, or because they wanna take a material that appeals to a certain niche and dumb it down in order to try to make it appealing to a wider audience. Or because they need more proffit and so they need to cut stuff out because it is too costly for them to make it and so on and so forth. Theres always an excuse to ruin the source material instead of build up on it. Thats why altough i do watch some shows and movies here and there i tend to spend most of my time with books. But as you said, fingers crossed! =)

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles Day ago +1

      @Caio Teixeira - Honestly if they just STICK TO THE SOURCE MATERIAL this could legitimately be amazing, but for some reason directors so often seem to feel the need to take away vital parts of the original story and add in long drawn out romantic plots and the like, and lots of sex of course, believing this will appeal to a wider audience Y_Y While yes, it ensures a certain demographic will watch their show, so many people just want a good story. All they have to do here to deliver us a good story is follow the source material because the source material is one of the best stories I've ever read (been up there with my faves for two decades now), I really hope they don't let us down on this one. Fingers crossed :D

    • Caio Teixeira
      Caio Teixeira Day ago +1

      ​@Liloh Loves Subtitles i saw that a while after posting this here. Thanks for the info anyway. Lets hope they do something good, but my expectation is really low. As a lot of ppl stated already, at least the source material is done so they will have to work harder to make it a mess. ;)

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles

  • Ross Egan

    Its about time..his dark materials is some of the best if not the best fiction ever written and we got no sequel to the golden compass because of religious nuts sticking their noses in..cant stop it now fuckers.. the whole plot of this is to kill god because he is evil.

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles Day ago

      It's interpreted in so many different ways! The former Archbishop of Canterbury actually endorsed His Dark Materials because he said the books are about the death of a false God (a church governed by evil, godless people), and the upholding of core religious values!! But I agree, the whole plot of the books is to wage war on Heaven and kill God, they're actually an adaptation of Paradise Lost (Asriel is Pullman's version of Satan). I can't wait to see how they adapt this show from the books and like you, I hope they keep all the religious (well, anti-religious) stuff ^_^

    A year ago I read the first book from the series. I liked it really much, but for some reason forgot about it and didn't read the rest. Recently I decided to read the two other books. And right now I discovered this!!!! Omg, you just can't imagine how exited I am. I'm gonna read the books and wait :D

  • Kurt Hamel - Online Marketing

    The original book series was deep with a religious allegory and how blind faith impedes and causes problem - completely expect HBO to just turn it into an action series!

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 4 days ago

      It was made by the BBC so I hope they will stick to the original story and keep the religious elements (the books are actually an adaptation of Paradise Lost so the religious elements are the core of the story in a way!). However I share your concern, there's a chance that to pandy to all the people who haven't read the books they'll just make this an action series in the hopes of drawing in a wider crowd Y_Y but if they would just read the comments under their teasers they'll see every single fan of the books who has commented has said "please stick to the original story!!" ... We just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope they don't butcher this!!! :)

      @The badass terminator The badass terminator - did you like Age of Ultron? I never saw the trailer as I only became a Marvel fan over the past year or so, but I loved Age of Ultron when I finally got to see it 💚 I agree though, you often can't judge any show or movie based off the trailer - sometimes the trailer is really good but the show or movie itself is crap, or it works the other way around just as often as well! :)

    Omg I seriously hope they keep the source material ... that scene where the children have to cross the lake and leave their daemons behind always kills me in the books, it's so poignant! I always wanted to see that on screen. And the war is going to be absolutely badass. Please, please, PLEASE don't fuck this up HBO! (Or BBC, or whoever)

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 10 days ago +1

      I agree Tielle, it could be so incredibly good if they only stick to the damn source material!! Please don't force in relationship subplots that never exist in the books and take away important aspects of the originals to fit all the romance and sex in (which is what they did with GoT, among other things), we literally ALL pretty much want a direct adaptation of the books!!! :)

    HBO, if you watch the comments, have you seen how many thousands of 'like's the comments that ask that you stick to the material are getting? I hope you realise how important this is to SO MANY of us.

  • K Therese
    K Therese 15 days ago +1

    I am a bit hopeful, but this trailer makes it look as though it still might be dumbed-down for dodos ... it could just be a poorly-cut trailer, so as I said, still hopeful. Crossing fingers and toes etc. VERY dubious about the casting for Miss Coulter. Am sure this actress is a brilliant actress, but she is literally 100% unlike Miss Coulter from the novels. Oh please be good!

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 12 days ago +1

      @K Therese - only time will tell! I know she's brilliant at being evil based on her character in Luther BUT she comes across as a little dull in this trailer so it will also come down to the directing and writing I suppose. Lyra also looks a little dull (un-energetic, if that makes sense?) in the trailer, but in the movie 'Logan' the same actress was a viscous, wild, untamed little girl just like Lyra is in the books, so I'm wondering if the trailer itself (being a teaser) maybe just isn't giving us enough of a view of these actors for us to make up our minds about them? I'm so excited for this series, but I'm trying not to get my hopes too high just in case they miss the mark :P I did make a video about it if you'd be interested in checking it out? It's cool if not, I'd just like to connect with other people who have genuine opinions about the TV series/books/cast etc, so figured if I made a video I might be able to connect with more people! Anyway cheers for the chat, let's just keep our fingers crossed that Ruth Wilson will be a good (scary, evil) Marisa Coulter for the TV series! ^_^

    • K Therese
      K Therese 12 days ago +1

      @Liloh Loves Subtitles Thank you for that! You have given me a bit more hope. I did wonder to myself, 'have they cast her cos she's good at being terrifying'? So you've answered my question

      Liloh Loves Subtitles 12 days ago +1

      Hi there. I'm not actually much of a fan of Ruth Wilson myself, HOWEVER, did you see her in Luther? She is actually pretty good at acting evil so she MAY be able to fill the shoes of Marisa Coulter adequately, I really hope so :)
