Well, it has been 20 years since fans have been waiting for the live-action Halo series. Finally, the time is here and Paramount+ unveiled the first Halo trailer at the 20th anniversary Xbox event by Microsoft on Monday. The Halo trailer is filled with many nostalgic references, a cinematic score, and a lot more!

Though, the Halo trailer is quite short. Yet, it gives viewers a glimpse into the series. First, we see the clip opening with a slow pan. Then we see the Master Chief bare-backed with all the scars that he has endured in the battle.


Then, we see Pablo Schreiber coming in with the iconic Mjonir armour. For now, it is difficult to say whether Schreiber will do justice to the character. However, the Halo series features a lot more for fans to relive the nostalgia.

We will see Natascha McElhone playing the role of Dr. Catherine Halsey. At the same time, we will also see Jen Taylor reprising the role of Cortana. In the original gaming series, Jen Taylor is the original voice playing Cortana.


While the Halo trailer does not take us very deep into the series, reports say that other cast includes Bokeem Woodbine, Charlie Murphy, Kate Kennedy Bentley Kalu, Danny Sapani, Olive Gray, Shabana Azmi, and Natasha Culzac.

Indeed, a live-action series of the original games is something tricky to pull off. After all, the Halo games are among the most beloved ones in the history of Xbox and Microsoft. Hence, long-time Xbox fans hold these titles very dear to them.


When it comes to the big screen, it is a situation that is either a hit or a miss. Previously, the live-action adaptations, including Halo 4: Forward unto Dawn, Halo: Nightfall, and Halo: Landfall, received a good response but did not really live to the expectations of long-time fans.

For now, the Halo trailer gives us good hope for the series. However, based on the Halo trailer alone, it is difficult to say whether the series will do justice to the franchise. Nevertheless, Paramount+ has confirmed that the series will come out in 2022.
