Οι σειρές κάνουν θραύση πολλά χρόνια, βασιζόμενες σε μερικές ιδέες που έχουν ενδιαφέρον και μια από τις καλύτερες που θα δούμε είναι το «His Dark Materials», με τα πρώτα σχόλια να είναι αποθεωτικά για την νέα σειρά φαντασίας.

 

Fans of the books will be glad to know that care has been taken to get it right this time. From what I’ve seen so far, nothing of consequence has been left out. — Robert Lloyd, The Los Angeles Times

Despite the rich complexities of the novel’s world of daemons, power-hungry players and warring faiths, HBO’s “His Dark Materials” feels like it could have been plucked from most any other fantasy epic out there. — Caroline Framke, Variety

National Treasure screenwriter (and screenwriting national treasure) Jack Thorne has pulled off the improbable if not quite the impossible, delivering an engaging and sumptuous take on Pullman’s world that cleaves impressively close to the books while still making a few tweaks for the visual medium. — Huw Fullerton, Radio Times

Keen is spellbinding. She is modern enough not to alienate the younger audience members but also possesses a sort of old-fashioned pluck that helps to propel the action. Among the adult cast, James McAvoy is commanding as Asriel, while Ruth Wilson’s Mrs. Coulter is like an irresistibly enigmatic screen siren from a Forties film noir. — Ben Lawrence, Daily Telegraph

Dafne Keen, recognisable from 2017 X-Men film Logan, plays main character Lyra with willfulness and spark. James McAvoy is terrific as her Byronic uncle Lord Asriel, while you’d call Ruth Wilson a revelation as the glamorous and mysterious Mrs Coulter if she weren’t always this watchable. — Louisa Mellor, Den of Geek

Only Lin-Manuel Miranda, as “aeronaut for hire” Lee Scoresby, hits a false note. The actor wears his fedora at a determinedly rakish tilt, but his swagger (and his intermittent Southern drawl) are more playacting than performance. — Kristen Baldwin, EW

While we’re on the subject of the way things look, everything from the tourist-board realism of the canals, via the cobbled streets inhabited by the Gyptians (a group of water travellers whose children are going missing), up to the skyline of Oxford, are sumptuous examples of imagination manifested. — Matt Rodgers, Flickering Myth

All the lavish CGI has other limitations. The more ambitious it gets, the more studio-bound the acting becomes. You can’t help remembering that the stars are performing in front of green screens, talking to imaginary animals and running through unseen buildings. — Christopher Stevens, Daily Mail

This is an ambitious series that tackles some lofty themes about power and faith while still giving us spectacular special effects and thrilling action sequences. In short, this is HBO’s first series that has the scale of Game of Thrones but is accessible for all ages. — Alex Maidy, JoBlo’s Movie Emporium

His Dark Materials is very much a fantasy series made in the aftermath of Game of Thrones, with the story’s more fantastical elements given as much weight as the conspiratorial mysteries and complicated character dynamics. — Hoi-Tran-Bui, SlashFilm

Πρόκειται για την μεταφορά στη μικρή οθόνη της σειράς βιβλίων φαντασίας του Philip Pullman, που ξεκίνησε το 1995 με το «Northern Lights», το 1997 το «The Subtle Knife» ενώ η τριλογία ολοκληρώθηκε το 2000 με το «The Amber Spyglass».

Η σειρά εστιάζει στα δυο παιδιά, την Lyra Belacqua και τον Will Parry, καθώς ταξιδεύουν μέσα απο διάφορα παράλληλα σύμπαντα και συναντούν πλήθος φανταστικών πλασμάτων, αναμέσα τους μάγισσες και πάνοπλες πολικές αρκούδες.

Η σκηνοθεσία είναι από τον Tom Hooper («The King’s Speech»), ενώ θα δούμε μεγάλα ονόματα όπως είναι οι James McAvoy, Clarke Peters, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Richard Cunningham, Dafne Keen και άλλοι. Η πρεμιέρα είναι προγραμματισμένη για τις 3 Νοεμβρίου.
