After the first filming of the His Dark Materials novel series, The Golden Compass, could not be very successful, HBO and BBC now try together as a series. His Dark Materials will be out in November and a first trailer will whet your appetite for more. His Dark Materials is a novel series by Auto Phillip Pullman. The story takes place in a world where every human being has a demon in animal form at his side. In addition to science, there is also a kind of magic. It's not magical, as in the Harry Potter movies, but Pullman's shamanism was magic-oriented. In addition, there are several other magical creatures besides the demons. The focus is on the girl Lyra secretly sneaking on an Arctic expedition after hearing her uncle talk about how a cosmic power called dust could have a big impact on life on Earth. But the religious group that governs humanity is hunting for it and its demon.
The series is a collaboration between HBO and BBC. 2008 came with the Golden Compass, a first film adaptation of the series in the cinemas, but could not really get a foothold. In addition to a lack of spectators, protest by the Catholic Church also led to the fact that the project, which was actually planned as a trilogy, was stopped. The works of Pullman show a clearly anticlerical attitude, which caused a lot of protest, especially in the USA. Now HBO and BBC want to do better. A first trailer already shows the elaborate CGI effects and the high-caliber cast of the series. So fans can look forward to actors like James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda.
When His Dark Materials starts in Germany is still unclear. In the United States, the starting date is 4 November. According to Sky, who broadcasts HBO series as usual, His Dark Materials will also be released here in the fall.
