After a first tantalizing teaser, the live action Halo series, adapted from the video game franchise, is revealed a little more in an impressive trailer.
In production for many years and long postponed, the live-action Halo series is finally revealed in a promising trailer revealed during the Game Awards 2021 ceremony. These impressive images, which should please fans of the video game franchise, put especially on stage Master Chief, played by Pablo Schreiber.
Although the latter is the main protagonist of Halo, this series shot in live action, produced among others by Microsoft and Amblin Entertainment, will not be linked to the video game Halo Infinite, released on December 8.
Thus, the pitch of the series of nine episodes directed by Otto Bathurst (Peaky Blinders) has been unveiled: Showcasing an epic 26th century conflict between humanity and an alien menace known as the Covenant, the Halo series will tell deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure, and a richly imagined vision of the future.”
Among the characters expected in the series are Catherine Halsey (Natascha McElhone), Jacob Keyes (Danny Sapani), Miranda Keyes (Olive Gray), Margaret Parangosky (Shabana Azmi), Soren-066 (Bokeem Woodbine), Cortana (Jen Taylor) ) and Kwan Ha (Yerin Ha).
If these images gave us a first glimpse of the colossal means implemented to create a universe and a quality aesthetic for this series, they did not give us a precise date of release. Halo is expected in early 2022 on Paramount +, a platform that is not available in France.
