    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.

    This looks like it will do the source material justice. I went and saw The Golden Compass in the theater. I'm surprised I didn't get my ass beat by some dad, due to the stream of curse words that came out of my mouth. It is such a great series of books, but you can't ignore the anti religious element.

    This is the Torchwood crowd with HBO money so I have high hopes for the right tone: like a grown up Doctor Who, with the humanistic and revolutionary message safe, and the the cruelty intact.

    I thought both Mrs. Colter and Lyra were blond or blondish. Although I like the casting for Lyra, feels like the right character.

    They better not screw this up, especially after the movie "The Golden Compass" ended up being a disaster.

    Please dont butcher this like you guys did with A Song of Ice and Fire!
    I mean PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD dont ruin THIS! Also please dont ruin watchmen as well.

    Its about time..his dark materials is some of the best if not the best fiction ever written and we got no sequel to the golden compass because of religious nuts sticking their noses in..cant stop it now fuckers.. the whole plot of this is to kill god because he is evil.

    A year ago I read the first book from the series. I liked it really much, but for some reason forgot about it and didn't read the rest. Recently I decided to read the two other books. And right now I discovered this!!!! Omg, you just can't imagine how exited I am. I'm gonna read the books and wait :D

  • Kurt Hamel - Online Marketing

    The original book series was deep with a religious allegory and how blind faith impedes and causes problem - completely expect HBO to just turn it into an action series!

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 2 days ago

      It was made by the BBC so I hope they will stick to the original story and keep the religious elements (the books are actually an adaptation of Paradise Lost so the religious elements are the core of the story in a way!). However I share your concern, there's a chance that to pandy to all the people who haven't read the books they'll just make this an action series in the hopes of drawing in a wider crowd Y_Y but if they would just read the comments under their teasers they'll see every single fan of the books who has commented has said "please stick to the original story!!" ... We just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope they don't butcher this!!! :)

      This is still just a teaser, usually a lot of the CGI etc isn't finished when they release these! Might look cleaner when the actual trailer comes out (though it actually looks pretty good to me even though this is just a teaser!) :)

      @The badass terminator The badass terminator - did you like Age of Ultron? I never saw the trailer as I only became a Marvel fan over the past year or so, but I loved Age of Ultron when I finally got to see it 💚 I agree though, you often can't judge any show or movie based off the trailer - sometimes the trailer is really good but the show or movie itself is crap, or it works the other way around just as often as well! :)

    • The badass terminator The badass terminator
      The badass terminator The badass terminator 8 days ago +1

      @Zachary McSleuthburger I personally don't trust trailers I wait until I see the movie or the show I stopped trusting trailers before judging the movie or a tv series especially after trailers like age of ultron and suicide squad

    Omg I seriously hope they keep the source material ... that scene where the children have to cross the lake and leave their daemons behind always kills me in the books, it's so poignant! I always wanted to see that on screen. And the war is going to be absolutely badass. Please, please, PLEASE don't fuck this up HBO! (Or BBC, or whoever)

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 8 days ago +1

      I agree Tielle, it could be so incredibly good if they only stick to the damn source material!! Please don't force in relationship subplots that never exist in the books and take away important aspects of the originals to fit all the romance and sex in (which is what they did with GoT, among other things), we literally ALL pretty much want a direct adaptation of the books!!! :)

    HBO, if you watch the comments, have you seen how many thousands of 'like's the comments that ask that you stick to the material are getting? I hope you realise how important this is to SO MANY of us.

  • K Therese
    K Therese 14 days ago +1

    I am a bit hopeful, but this trailer makes it look as though it still might be dumbed-down for dodos ... it could just be a poorly-cut trailer, so as I said, still hopeful. Crossing fingers and toes etc. VERY dubious about the casting for Miss Coulter. Am sure this actress is a brilliant actress, but she is literally 100% unlike Miss Coulter from the novels. Oh please be good!

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 11 days ago +1

      @K Therese - only time will tell! I know she's brilliant at being evil based on her character in Luther BUT she comes across as a little dull in this trailer so it will also come down to the directing and writing I suppose. Lyra also looks a little dull (un-energetic, if that makes sense?) in the trailer, but in the movie 'Logan' the same actress was a viscous, wild, untamed little girl just like Lyra is in the books, so I'm wondering if the trailer itself (being a teaser) maybe just isn't giving us enough of a view of these actors for us to make up our minds about them? I'm so excited for this series, but I'm trying not to get my hopes too high just in case they miss the mark :P I did make a video about it if you'd be interested in checking it out? It's cool if not, I'd just like to connect with other people who have genuine opinions about the TV series/books/cast etc, so figured if I made a video I might be able to connect with more people! Anyway cheers for the chat, let's just keep our fingers crossed that Ruth Wilson will be a good (scary, evil) Marisa Coulter for the TV series! ^_^

    • K Therese
      K Therese 11 days ago +1

      @Liloh Loves Subtitles Thank you for that! You have given me a bit more hope. I did wonder to myself, 'have they cast her cos she's good at being terrifying'? So you've answered my question

    • Liloh Loves Subtitles
      Liloh Loves Subtitles 11 days ago +1

      Hi there. I'm not actually much of a fan of Ruth Wilson myself, HOWEVER, did you see her in Luther? She is actually pretty good at acting evil so she MAY be able to fill the shoes of Marisa Coulter adequately, I really hope so :)

    Let’s hope they get it right this time! The golden compass wasn’t terrible in terms of design but it didn’t stay true to the book which made it disappointing. I’ll be so excited to see an adaptation of The Subtle Knife and Amber Spyglass as long as they get it right and do the story justice!

      @Anna Kasarova The movie adaptation had the church protesting against the movie and that's why things were toned down in terms of showing the church in a bad light. HBO doesn't care about things like that so they can be more accurate and show the things that were in the book.
