Announcement Teaser for a 'Halo' Live-Action Series on Paramount+
"Hello, Master Chief." Finally! After all these years, they're just about to finally debut a live-action Halo series. Not a movie, but a series, which is probably the best fit for this video game anyway. The Halo series will be streaming on Paramount+ in 2022, and is being developed by Amblin Television, Microsoft Studios, and Showtime Networks, and is being showrun by Steven Kane (creator of "The Last Ship", producer on "The Closer" and "American Dad!"). The massive ensemble cast features Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, with Natascha McElhone, Yerin Ha, Bokeem Woodbine, Jen Taylor as Cortana, Shabana Azmi, Olive Gray, Charlie Murphy, Kate Kennedy, Bentley Kalu, Natasha Culzac, Danny Sapani, and Ryan McParland. The very first, original Halo game launched for Xbox in 2001. Years later, after many sequels and spin-offs and other games (don't forget the live-action Halo 4 teaser), they've finally made a real show. This is only an announcement teaser and doesn't have much footage, just a look at Master Chief's back and armor. But it's still exciting nonetheless, right? Right?! Let's just hope this will be worth the wait.
Here's the first announcement teaser for Microsoft's Halo live-action series, direct from YouTube:
