Lin-Manuel Miranda & James McAvoy Talk Up 'His Dark Materials' at San Diego Comic-Con 2019

James McAvoy and Lin-Manuel Miranda sit side by side for the His Dark Materials during 2019 Comic-Con at the San Diego Convention Center on Thursday night (July 18) in San Diego, Calif.

The two stars joined Dafne Keen and Ruth Wilson to chat up the new HBO series.

The first season of the new show follows Lyra (Keen), a seemingly ordinary, but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust.

As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.

FYI: Ruth is wearing a Marni dress.
