Oh, my giddy aunt. I’ve been waiting for years and years for His Dark Materials to get a decent adaptation. I know director Chris Weitz had the best intentions with 2007’s The Golden Compass, but I know I’m not alone in that perspective. There were a lot of religious subjects the film was unwilling to touch on, but with this new HBO and BBC series, I may very well get the adaptation I want.

We’ve had a short teaser for several months, but I’ve honestly been waiting to see how Lin-Manuel Miranda performed as Lee Scoresby. In this new trailer, we get a few glimpses of him doing his best Texas accent.

All I can say is that its eventual release can’t get here quickly enough. The VFX look almost on par with the film, and the story more faithful in virtually every way. 

But what do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
