New Halo TV Show Trailer Unveiled
The first full-length trailer for the upcoming Halo TV series aired tonight during The Game Awards. The trailer revealed Pablo Schreiber as the Master Chief and set up some of the story and settings that spectators will get to see in the long-awaited sci-fi show.
The Halo series is coming to Paramount+ in 2022. It’s produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Schreiber said it was a “herculean task” to play Master Chief, in part because of his extreme workout schedule to get shredded to play the Xbox hero.
“It’s a huge job, from setting the tone on set down to the grueling task of waking up at the crack of dawn to work out, then go to shoot and go home to work out some more. Nothing about it is easy, and I wouldn’t want it to be,” he said.
Schreiber said the Halo series will be a “classic hero’s journey” that will “crack the veneer” of Master Chief. “It takes place very much in the universe that the video games created, but it’s a TV show. We get to expand that universe and create stories in it. There’s going to be some new characters that are introduced, there’s going to be a lot of familiar characters that everyone will know from the game,” he said.
