Fans of The Last of Us have known that production on the series has been underway for several months. And if photos and videos taken at filming locations have already been found online, nothing truly official has been found on the web until now. Naughty Dog took advantage of a very special occasion to put forward his project in a more official way.
Naughty Dog has just released the first official image of the TV series adaptation of The Last of Us. Unsurprisingly, this photo was uploaded as part of The Last of Us Day. The latter is the annual virtual event in honor of the saga created by the Californian studio.
As logic dictates, this first photo shows the two heroes of the series. It is therefore possible to see, from behind, Joel and Ellie, observing from a distance the site of a plane crash. As a reminder, Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey respectively play Joel and Ellie in this adaptation. The full photo is available in our gallery below.
Following the posting of this photo, Neil Druckmann went there with his little comment. The co-president of Naughty Dog, and incidentally one of the creators of The Last of Us, said on Twitter :
“When I first saw them on set in their costumes, I was like, ‘Holy shit! It’s Joel and Ellie!’
The HBO adaptation of The Last of Us from Naughty Dog is advancing at full speed!
I can’t wait to show you more (of all our projects)! Happy The Last of Us Day! “
Neil Druckmann has been closely involved in the creation of the games since the first The Last of Us. But he is also actively involved in the production of the series in live action. In addition to being a co-producer of the latter, he will also go behind the camera for at least one episode.
The Last of Us, but not only
His remark regarding Naughty Dog’s multiple projects is also worth noting. The Sony studio has a priori several projects on the go on PS5. Including a multiplayer offering according to various job offers.
Finally, it should be remembered that The Last of Us series does not yet have an announced release date. In addition to the two actors mentioned above, she will also star Gabriel Luna and Merle Dandridge in the roles of Tommy and Marlene respectively.
