His Dark Materials has finally debuted, introducing folks to Lyra Belacqua (Dafne Keen) and the weird and wonderful world she inhabits. But there’s still plenty more story to tell in the first season… including that thing you all know we’re here for. That’s right: The bear fight.
After “Lyra’s Jordan,” HBO released a new trailer teasing what to expect from the rest of season one on His Dark Materials. As of the end of the first episode, Lyra is heading to London so she can look for her friend Roger (Lewin Lloyd) with Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson), but things aren’t quite what they seem with her new guardian.
Meanwhile, Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) is promising a war for the “future of humanity,” something that’s bound to excite and terrify fans of Phillip Pullman’s trilogy. We’re in for a wild ride, folks. Keep your daemons close.
His Dark Materials continues on Foxtel with episode two on on Monday.
