The Golden Compass Movie

Swiped this from the very cool one-sheet for The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials Part 1), which debuts on December 7.

The hot bear is Iorek Byrnison, one of the panserbjorne, or armored bears. They have opposable thumbs, but no daemons. Don't ask.

Suffice it to say, if they do this right (and what are the chances of that?), this trilogy will blow Lord of the Rings, Narnia and its ilk out of the water. (Harry who?)

Personally I'm just hoping the film version turn out good.
Since they decided to "nix" the whole Vatican and religious angle; who knows how faithful the films will be.

I'm rereading The Golden Compass at the moment, and that's been much on my mind in doing so, but I've been surprised how easy it is to just have the General Oblation Board be its own thing.

That gets tricker in the second and third books, but not so much in this one. If this one hits, maybe they'll have the cache to do go forward faithfully.
