We have been treated to so many wonderful film adaptations of much loved novels in recent years that although the book will always be better the gulf is definitely lessening.
Everything, Everything is a novel by author Nicola Yoon and it follows the story of Maddy who is allergic to the world; even the simple act of stepping outside the sterile sanctuary of her home could kill her and so she stays indoors. Until Olly moves in next door.
In that one moment Maddy realises that life without risks is not living it’s simply existing and she is not prepared to carry on without experiencing the joys that the outside world, and Olly has to offer her.
We saw the teaser trailer in March and it didn’t give much away, however this latest trailer is VERY exciting. In it we get to see and hear the characters many of us fell in love with from Pullman’s books including the main protagonist Lyra Belacqua who is played by Dafne Keen and the wonderful James McAvoy who will play Lord Asriel. Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins) is set to play the Texan aeronaut Lee Scoresby, while James Cosmo and Lucian Msamati play as Farder Coram and John Faa respectively.
Any fan of the book series will be pleased to see far more detail from the book included in the television series, as opposed to the movie The Golden Compass, which left out chunks of the story and never managed to make enough at the box office to carry on the movie franchise.
8 intense episodes will run over 2 seasons, and a date has yet to be announced for its release. We do know, however, that it will premiere in the USA by the end of 2019.
We will let you know more details as we have them- meanwhile check out the trailer below!

Since then Molly has published a book of her poetry, influenced by vulnerable and touching moments working in the NHS, and more recently written her memoir, How To Treat People.
Molly’s empathy and passion for nursing is beautifully displayed in rich and lyrical language in both her poetry and prose. Her writing is a much needed honest and fascinating insight into the underappreciated and underrepresented backbone of the UK’s Nation Health Service.
Find her recital at the 2013 Royal College of Nursing congress below along with links to her books.
