For Halo’s 20th anniversary, the first teaser trailer for the upcoming Halo series has finally been released. In it you can see Master Chief in his legendary suit.
First teaser for the TV series in the Halo universe
The series for the popular Xbox brand Halo shared the same fate as many other video game adaptations for a long time. Because these are often announced in order to then disappear into the production hell. Work on a Halo series was first reported in 2013 – originally with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair, now as a producer. Today the first teaser trailer sees the light of day.
The first moving material takes less than 30 seconds and accordingly does not show much. Still you can take a quick look at Master Chief and his legendary suit.
In the teaser you will also hear a familiar voice say: “Hello, Master Chief.” Fans of the games will surely immediately recognize that this is it the iconic AI Cortana acts.
More information about the Halo series
The first season of the Halo series should have a total of nine episodes; how long the individual episodes last is still unknown. Master Chief should also be the protagonist in the real series. He is played by the Canadian actor Pablo Schreiber.
Schreiber has appeared in a number of well-known series, including American Gods and Orange Is The New Black. The role of the creator of the Spartan soldiers Dr. Catherine Halsey takes over Natascha McElhone. Especially interesting for fans of the games: Cortana is voiced by Jen Taylor, who also voices the AI in the games.
The Halo series appears in the USA on the streaming service Paramount +. In Germany, Paramount + will be available via the pay TV service Sky in 2022. But there is one catch to the whole thing: It is currently not known when the streaming service will actually be available. The Halo series is supposed to appear in the first quarter of 2022. It is possible that in this country, similar to Star Trek: Discovery, it will initially be offered via another streaming service such as Netflix.
