This is fantastic news. After the stellar job they made of Jonathan Strange, I can't wait!

I thought the Golden Compass movie was pretty good, but I guess they are going for the entire trilogy. IIRC, there were religious objections to what people felt was the message of the story. Maybe UK will have better luck with that.

The problem with the Golden Compass Movie was they left out all the religious overtones, and most importantly the entire climax of the book!

I'm really looking forward to this and a pretext to reread the entire series.

The Golden Compass was okay for the first book where the underlying message (imho) does not yet play the role which it does play in the later parts. But there was no way to continue in this direction with the other parts to the book.

More news on this! It's a 40 episode 5 season arc with the first 8 episodes focussing on Northern Lights (The Golden Compass). Oh and Dafne Keen, the girl from the Logan move, will be playing Lyra! Also hearing rumours that Lee Scoresby will be Lin Manuel Miranda.
