It’s been a long time coming, but we finally get a glimpse of the upcoming Halo Live-Action TV series in the form of a very short teaser during the recently concluded Xbox 20th Anniversary Event.
Very short indeed, as the clip is only less than 30 seconds, but it’s a good look nonetheless at Master Chief (Paolo Schreiber from American Gods) and what could be Cortana (Jen Taylor to reprise her role) with a familiar greeting.
Apart from this, there’s very little news about what it will be about, but we do know at least that the target premiere date will be in 2022 and will be a Paramount Plus exclusive.
According to a Wikipedia entry, the Halo Live-Action cast will be as follows:
- Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, a towering supersoldier known as a “Spartan”
- Jen Taylor as Dr. Catherine Halsey, a scientist for the UNSC and creator of the Spartan-II Project.
- Yerin Ha as Kwan Ha
- Charlie Murphy as Makee
- Shabana Azmi as Admiral Margaret Parangosky, Director of ONI.
- Bokeem Woodbine as Soren-066
- Olive Gray as Miranda Keyes
- Kate Kennedy as Kai-125
- Natasha Culzac as Riz-028
- Bentley Kalu as Vannak-134
- Danny Sapani as Captain Jacob Keyes
In other Halo-related news, the multiplayer beta is live as of today, 3 weeks ahead of the campaign release which is still scheduled for December 8.
