SDCC 2019: ‘His Dark Materials’ Trailer: HBO’s Latest May Fill Fantasy Void

His Dark Materials Cast Creators Talk About the BBC HBO Show at San Diego Comic Con 2019

And while matching the most popular TV show in history is a tall order for any new show, the good news is that His Dark Materials actually looks like it has such a richly-drawn fantasy world - and a big enough budget - that it might actually be able to hold its own. Check out the latest trailer for the show here below.

Dafne Keen is sharing her spirit animal - literally!

Honestly, this trailer included everything that sells His Dark Materials as a must-watch fantasy event, at least for the first episode. She embarks on a search for her missing friends that leads to a conspiracy of missing children that are being taken to the North, an area where no child belongs, filled with a mysterious substance called Dust. She lives at the stuffy Jordan College in Oxford, where she is infrequently visited by her only family member, her intimidating uncle Asriel, played by James McAvoy. Of course, this is just a trailer.

The new trailer sets up Lyra's journey into a risky magical world, introducing the major players in her life, like McAvoy's Lord Asriel, Ruth Wilson's antagonist Marisa Coulter, and Lee Scoresby, the charismatic explorer played by Lin Manuel Miranda. Together they encounter extraordinary beings like armoured polar bear Iorek Byrnison and risky secrets, with the fate of both the living - and the dead - in their hands. We'll be on-site with live coverage of the first look at BBC & HBO's His Dark Materials., starting today at 4:45PM PDT, 7:45 EDT.
