The Golden Compass Remake Now HBO’s His Darkest Material

The Golden Compass Remake Now HBO's His Darkest Material

You might remember the movie The Golden Compass from 2007, the movie that left us all hanging and awaiting a sequel, but since it failed in the box office, the sequel was scrapped.

Now, The Golden Compass is returning, but as a series on HBO called His Darkest Material. Continue on… has your first look at the new The Golden Compass remake which is now HBO’s His Darkest Material trailer.

Yes, we will all have to go back to the beginning and start over from the same source material from when watching His Darkest Material trailer. It will be the same storytelling to catch up to where the film left off as Lyra Belacqua is trying to save children from the Majesterium.

Golden Compass Synopsis:

Lyra Belacqua (Dakota Blue Richards) lives in a parallel world in which human souls take the form of lifelong animal companions called daemons. Dark forces are at work in the girl’s world, and many children have been kidnapped by beings known as Gobblers. Lyra vows to save her best friend, Roger after he disappears too. She sets out with her daemon, a tribe of seafarers, a witch, an ice bear, and a Texas airman on an epic quest to rescue Roger and save her world.

HBO’s synopsis may sound familiar to The Golden Compass synopsis:

Here is the show’s official description:

His Dark Materials stars Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson, and Lin-Manuel Miranda. 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.

His Dark Materials premieres on HBO this fall.

You can still watch The Golden Compass if you want a quick notes version of HBO’s upcoming series. Maybe this is what the movie always should have been, but they should have picked up where the film left off instead.

It’s like Divergent, we NEVER got the final installment. We sure hope they don’t intend to make it a series on a premium network and start from the beginning, that would just suck.
