Mrs Coulter looks a bit off to me, but I'm sure it'll all be fine Looking forward to it!

I've never read the books.

Or watched the one film they made.

I'm think I might start on the books tonight as I'm at a bit of a loose end.

I read the first two books many years ago, been meaning to finish off the trilogy. I actually have them on Audible as full cast audiobooks which sound like a fun listen.
This does look interesting, mostly because of the casting of Dafne Keen who was excellent back in Logan.

The books are fantastic. The movie had a great cast (Nicole Kidman *is* Mrs Coulter) but they sanatised the religious control aspects because some Christian fundamentalists in the US got annoyed. Plus loads of other things were wrong with it that I won't spoil here, but the film was a massive missed opportunity.

The film was a bit rubbish. Enjoyed the books, although they are hard going at a couple of points
