At San Diego Comic-Con, HBO debuted a lengthy look at its upcoming fantasy series His Dark Materials. And though it's not exactly the second coming of Game of Thrones, it looks very good in its own way.

Based on the iconic book trilogy The Golden Compass, the series' cast includes Daphne Keene (Logan) as Lyra Belacqua, Ruth Wilson (Luther) as Mrs. Coulter, James McAvoy (X-Men) as Lord Asriel, and Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton) as adventurer Lee Scoresby.

His Dark Materials has no release date yet but will premiere sometime in late 2019.
