The Amber Spyglass was a planned film adaptation of the book of the same name. It was to be a sequel to The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife, serving as the third and final installment of a planned film series adaptation of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy.


Lyra is kidnapped by her mother, Mrs. Coulter, an agent of the Magisterium who has learned of the prophecy identifying Lyra as the next Eve.
