Watch the TEASER——-HERE
His Dark Materials is one of the supreme works of imaginative fiction for both children and adults published in the 20th century. Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology, and magic are entwined. Lyra’s search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children and turns into a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

I thought this was related to The Golden Compass

Siks 6 points 4 months ago *

It is. The Golden Compass was book one of a trilogy, His Dark Materials. The movie kind of flopped because the story is brilliant and touches on almost every aspect of life, love, war, religion and truth, and two hours just isn’t enough time to do it justice. I’m glad they’re making a series so they can tell the story right

Thanks for clarifying that Siks…i rather enjoyed the Golden Compass even though it did feel rushed and that there was a LOT missing…even for someone who never read the books it was based on, i got the feeling that a lot was left out…i echo the sentiment that making it into a series is a brilliant idea to allow them to fully explore the source material, providing BBC doesn’t stick their fingers too deep and change any of the source material to make it more “PC” since we all know the BBC is at the forefront of being “Progressive”…they completely ruined the last season of Dr.Who for me..not because the doctor was female, but because they were so blatantly pushing an anti-west agenda where alll things “American” are BAD…surely i wasn’t the only who saw that…anyways, after a few episodes i just couldn’t do it any more…it made me really sad because Dr.Who was one of my absolute FAVORITE shows and the BBC fukking ruined it. ugh. anyways, sorry about the rant lol..i hold out hope for this series since i have only heard all good things!

Golden Compass was just the first part of three. They never made it to the second book of the series, so it was left unfinished.

episode 2 and still BORED !!! They expect the audience to understand to much without any explanation as if this is only for those who have read the book . On top of that there isnt a single likeable character in it so far

fishingmad 1 points 23 days ago *

Yes Scottish and completely intolerant of arse bubbles like him who think they can bump their gums and act all billybigbaws just because theyre on the internet , added to which for some infathomable reason he thinks his opinions trump all others?????

octoberswill -2 points 23 days ago

as a woman in america I can relate.

fattytheklown -5 points 23 days ago

it has nothing to do with the internet i would talk this way to you if i was in front you you

fishingmad 2 points 18 days ago

Typical response from a typical keyboard warrior , as you know there is very little chance indeed we will ever meet face to face 1. you would never want that to happen 2. your carer wont let you out on your own 3 I suspect the only time you raise your voice is to shout to your mum to bring you more dessert , you will continue to talk shite from the safety of your bedroom

fattytheklown -7 points 24 days ago *

its about a way on god its not for children its full of death and heartache and its the internet i can say whatever i like just like in the real world anyone can say anything and theres nothing you can do about it

Hooray! They’ve condensed a two-hour movie into eight hours of a tv show and we get to watch it over a span of a month-an-a-half… After waiting over a decade for an on-screen adaptation of the two books following the Golden Compass, how dare anyone complain that this show has a George RR Martin-style of milking a story
