Yes alright, so the Hollywood film version of The Golden Compass might have been a complete bloody disaster (oh the eternal horror of your fave book being turned into a film), but this latest news about the books is seriously exciting.
The creators of Skins and Dr Who – probably the best telly shows ever - are getting ready to transform Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy into a TV series, and we're guessing it's going to be pretty amazing.
According to Deadline, acclaimed writer Jack Thorne (who's worked on stuff like Skins and This Is England) has been hired to adapt Philip Pullman's novels for the BBC, along with some help from producers who helped make Dr Who a mega success.
If you haven't grown up with Philip Pullman's books, His Dark Materials is the name of his most famous trilogy made up of The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass, which follow the story of a young girl at the center of a fantasy mystery across other worlds.
Even Philip himself is mega excited about the adaptation, saying in a press release: "Jack is a writer of formidable energy and range, and I've greatly enjoyed talking to him and learning about his plans for bringing His Dark Materials to the screen.
"I'm certain he'll do a superb job, and I look forward to seeing the whole project develop as he shapes the story."
Oh PLEASE BE GOOD.
Got your fingers crossed that this one's gonna be better than the film? Let us know with a tweet to @Sugarscape.
