The Golden Compass (R2) in April
Entertainment in Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Golden Compass on 28th April 2008. Based on the first novel in the His Dark Materials series, this family fantasy follows a curious young heroine, Lyra Belacqua, and her quest to protect the coveted Golden Compass – the last of a mystical, powerful device that can unveil the truth, reveal what others wish to hide and even see the future.
