'The Golden Compass' to Return as Miniseries

'The Golden Compass' to Return as Miniseries

His Dark Materials, a young adult fantasy trilogy by Phillip Pullman, has seen many incarnations through radio, the stage, graphic novel format, major motion picture—and most recently, a BBC miniseries, reports Polygon.

More widely identified by the title of its first installment, The Golden Compass, Pullman’s series creates an imaginative and vivid universe for its readers. Unfortunately the big screen adaptation didn’t capture those elements accurately, and the original 2007 film release was met by lackluster ratings.

Now New Line Cinema, Bad Wolf, and the BBC hope to revive His Dark Materials for the small screen in an eight-part miniseries based on all three books. Pullman is set to produce the show alongside executives from Bad Wolf, New Line, and the book’s publisher Scholastic.

Let’s hope this version will do the trilogy justice!
