The BBC has released its teaser trailer for the upcoming series His Dark Materials, an adaptation from the British novel series of the same name by Sir Philip Pullman.

Pullman’s trilogy—consisting of Northern Lights (renamed The Golden Compass in North America), The Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass—chronicles the coming of age of Lyra and Will Parry as they wander through a series of parallel universes as a sort of re-telling of Paradise Lost.

Miranda’s character, Scoresby, is a balloonist in the novel; he guides Lyra in her journey to reach Lord Asriel’s residence in the North.

A premiere date for the series has not yet been announced, but it is expected (as is indicated in the teaser) to arrive 2019.
