We are lucky to be able to attend this year’s San Diego Comic-Con as press, and we attended the panel for HBO’s His Dark Materials. The cast, which includes Lin-Manuel Miranda, James McAvoy, and Ruth Wilson, packed SDCC’s famous Hall H, where they answered questions including what their daemon be, and talked about the show.
The show is based on the bestseller, and is set to premiere this fall. Here’s more about the show:
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.
