His Dark Materials Trailer: HBO Gears Up For Its Next Grand Epic
The trailer for BBC and HBO’s joint take on Philip Pullman’s epic trilogy, His Dark Materials, is finally out. With James McAvoy, Lin Manuel Miranda, Dafne Keen, and Ruth Wilson toplining the project, HBO is betting on the magnum opus fantasy to fill in the void The Game Of Thrones will leave behind. The networks had been waiting for the Game of Thrones to end before they could voice an announcement about the release date for His Dark Materials. And with the trailer dropping only a few days before the conclusion of HBO’s buoyant epic, a premiere date announcement seems inevitable.
His Dark Materials Trailer
In its first full-length trailer, His Dark Materials almost immediately grips with its theatrical appeal. The trailer is a bit longer than the teaser we saw February, showing a bit more of stars James McAvoy, Dafne Keen, Lin Manuel Miranda, and Ruth Wilson as they swing into action to deliver some power-packed performances. And of course, there are various animals (daemons) including a polar bear, a snow leopard, and even a crazy golden monkey to lookout for.
His Dark Materials Season 1 Plot
As the trailer suggests, His Dark Materials’ first eight-part season will revolve around the trilogy’s first book, The Golden Compass. In an alternate world, where the soul manifests itself as various exotic shape-shifting animals called daemons, the protagonist Lyra Belacqua (Keen) sets off to the Arctic to find her friend Roger. In the same sphere, The Church is kidnapping multiple children from an Oxford-esque school. The evil organization intends to conduct scientific experiments on its detainees. And that only determines the particulate nature of a new element, ‘The Dust’. The Church is fearful that the new element will subject people to their consciousness. So before something like that even occurs, they must eliminate all in the name of blasphemy. Lyra’s adventure, which has its roots well anchored in this basic premise, soon paves its way to become a part of a much bigger, global affair.
His Dark Materials Release Date Speculations And Trailer Analysis
His Dark Materials’ trailer has delivered the show’s ambitions well with its larger than life visuals. There are blimps, underground hideouts, extensive evil bases, colourful villages, arctic settlements and much more. Each frame carries careful details, promising a fantastic adventure as the story unfolds.
HBO has officially commissioned the marketing of its upcoming show with this trailer. In fact, HBO will soon let the cat out of the bag with respect to His Dark Materials’ release date. We’ll have to wait for The Game Of Thrones to end before new information arrives.
