After a few short teasers unveiled at the start of the week, the “Halo” series finally shows more with a first full trailer. The latter remains quite evasive concerning the plot of the show but allows to provide a superb visual overview.
Halo : an incredible video-fun saga
Exclusive and primary license for the XBox console, Halo is an absolutely iconic video game. A grandiose and impacting saga that has made millions of gamers worldwide. Created by Bungie in 2001, the saga Halo was quickly distributed by Microsoft through its ranges of XBox consoles. In all, 8 video games have emerged since 2001. The last, Halo: Infinite, was released on November 15th.
As a reminder, Halo tells of the interplanetary clash between humanity and an alien race called the Covenant. The player embodies, in most games, Major Spartan John-117, a supersoldier genetically modified to face aliens. Aided by Cortana, a ubiquitous artificial intelligence, this shadow hero, always masked, physically confronts these overpowered aliens. After many attempts to adapt to the cinema, Halo therefore arrives through a live-action series that will be broadcast on Paramount + in 2022.
An intriguing first trailer
If the universe Halo has already been derived through novels, comics, and TV movies in live version as in animation, no large-scale production had yet been offered before. Paramount + has therefore decided to launch and bring fans around the world the very first video game spinoff series worthy of the name. Casting side, it’s the actor Pablo Schreiber who will wear the armor and helmet of the Master Chief. The rest of the cast is made up of Natascha McElhone, Charlie Murphy and even Bentley Kalu. This first season, which will be consisting of 10 episodes, is directed by Kyle Killen and Steven Kane.
Paramount + just unveiled the first trailer for the series Halo. This one, quite short (1 minute) does not focus on the plot of the story, but more on the aesthetic aspect of the show. A first trailer which therefore does not teach us much, but which allows us to see what the series will look like. And phew, it still looks damn beautiful!
