Philip Pullman’s fantasy novel series, His Dark Materials, is being brought to the small screen on the BBC with Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Ruth Wilson among the cast.

The first novel of the series, Northern Lights, served as the basis for the 2007 Oscar-winning box office flop, The Golden Compass.
