Looks a very mixed bag, I’d probably see some of it, but a lot doesn’tinterest me at all.

I’m currently watching the BBC’s His Dark Materials, it’s very good.

It’s based on the books by Philip Pullman, but it’s not the first attempt. The film The Golden Compass was a bit of a flop, I’ve not seen it, but the events of the first book, Northern Lights, take seven fifty minute episodes to complete so I can see that a feature film must have left significant amounts out.

I was more surprised by the amount of Star Wars shows that are in production. It seems the success of the Mandalorian pushed Disney in a different direction.

I have seen the Golden Compass film and read the book years ago. If I recall, the film ended on a more happier note than the book. Apparently, the original book ending with the major character death was filmed, but test audiences didn't like the dark ending, so the film essentially stopped with the main characters on the airship. There were plans to use the ending as the opening scene for the sequel, but that never happened.

I don’t ‘get’ Star Wars, never did.

The loved character in Northern Lights dies at the end of season 1 and it’s quite shocking. I’ve not read the books, my son has, and he tells me there’s some crossover with the other books. The character of Will apparently only turns up in the second book, but he’s in the first season.

It’s a very good series, I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I have conflicting feelings about The Lion King prequel. I don't really care to see a prequel, but Barry Jenkins (If Beale Street Could Talk, Moonlight) is directing it, so it likely won't be terrible.
