Based on the novel series of the same name by Philip Pullman, the shows follows the life of a young girl and orphan named Lyra who is destined to save her world from the grasp of the Magisterium which represses people’s ties to magic and their daemons or, in other words, animal spirits.

“It’s very surreal to be inside of this world that you’ve devoted a lot of time to,” said Lin-Manuel Miranda, adding that him and his wife Vanessa read these books together while developing their relationship.

“His Dark Materials” first season just wrapped in December and the second season is expected to premiere later this year. It will be based on the second book in Pullman’s series, “The Subtle Knife.” You can catch the trailer below.
