After two years away, HBO’s adaptation of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials collection returns for its third and remaining season. This one will adapt the third and remaining guide within the trilogy, The Amber Spyglass, which can be the largest and strangest. “Season 3 is wild. It’s 100 percent the weirdest thing I’ve ever shot in my entire life,” star Dafne Keen (Lyra) advised Entertainment Weekly. “We’ve done so many weird locations and just surreal scenes where you’re talking about angels and God and the most random things ever. It was wild to film it and all the set dressing and everything was insane. If the other two [seasons] were already very fantastic, this one was a whole other level of that.”
Season 3 will meet up with Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) as he gathers an inter-dimensional military to battle the Authority, who’s principally God. Asriel thinks the Authority and his faith have subjugated humanity, and he’s out to place a cease to it, even when which means ignoring and even hurting his daughter Lyra. “He’s such a dick and he’s such a bad father,” McAvoy stated. “He’s doing it for the right reasons, but he’s doing it all the wrong way. The destination is more important than the journey for him. The ends totally justify the means for him. He’s a leader and a world-changer and a thinker and a doer before he is a father.”
Meanwhile, Lyra will reunite along with her speaking polar bear buddy Iorek Byrnison, journey to the Land of the Dead with Will (Amir Wilson), and meet up with some angels who’re rebelling in opposition to the dominion of heaven. Meanwhile, Dr. Mary Malone (Simone Kirby), whom we met in season 2, will journey to an alternate dimension and encounter Mulefa, alien beings with diamond-shaped skeletons who get round utilizing large seed pods as wheels.
