Lately, many streaming services have started adapting various popular games into exclusive series for their shows, one of which is Paramount+ which is working on a sci-fi series called Halo . The Halo game franchise itself is a First Person Shooter game that was first published by Microsoft Studios in 2001 to be played on Microsoft Windows and Xbox. Lots of fans can’t wait to see how Paramount brings the live-action Halo series to life .
The Halo series will tell the story of a war in the 26th century between humanity and the dangerous aliens known as the Covenant. The series, directed by Kyle Killen and Steven Kane, will star Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, Jen Taylor as Dr. Catherine Halsey/AI Cortana, Yerin Ha as Kwan Ha, Charlie Murphy as Makee, Shabana Azmi as Admiral Margaret Parangosky, Bokeem Woodbine as Soren-066, Olive Gray as Miranda Keyes, and many more. Recently, Paramount released the first trailer for Halo which shows many epic scenes.
There’s a lot shown in the trailer, from big cities and locations in the bowels of a planet, then many spaceships that are very much like in the game, and the most obvious is the clearer appearance of Master Chief Petty Officer John-117. . In the trailer footage, it is clear how iconic the armor worn by the Master Chief is, the army code 117 is clearly visible on his left chest, as well as the helmet with a gold visor that has managed to make fans nostalgic.
Although much of the material is taken directly from the game, such as property and character designs, it is possible that the Halo series will take a slightly different direction from the game. Previously, there had been rumors that the daughter of the iconic character Captain Keyes was told to grow up as an orphan who was raised by the Covenant aliens, so there might be humans on the Covenant’s side, even though all the antagonists in the game are purely evil aliens.
Because this first trailer doesn’t explain what Halo’s plot will be like, there are still many mysteries that remain unanswered. Who is Master Chief’s main enemy, then on which planet will he fight? Hopefully the next promotion can answer it all. At this time, there is still no official date when Halo will be released on Paramaount+, while the series is only confirmed to be released in 2022.
