Don't know anything about the books, but I think it's interesting Lin Manual Miranda is being pulled into a purely dramatic role, with no music or dancing to be seen.

Then it gets complicated...

I read the books, a long time ago. I liked them well enough, but take umbrage with some of Pullman's philosophical views as expressed in the themes of that series.
"'But whereas we have drunk with thee, who seemest to be a man of lineage, and thou hast been blithe with us, we will tell thee that we have seen one riding south along the Greenway, clad in a coat as green as the way, with the leafless tree done on his breast. So nigh to him we were that we heard his cry as he sped along, as ye may hear the lapwing whining, for he said: "POINT AND EDGE, POINT AND EDGE! THE RED WATER AMIDST OF THE HILLS!" In my lifetime such a man hath, to my knowledge, been seen thrice before; and after each sight of him followed evil days and the death of men.'"
