The actor who will get into Joel’s skin has given his opinion on the quality of the fiction, which will have Craig Mazin at the controls.
Although there are currently a thousand and one video game adaptations underway for the small screen ( Halo: The Series , The Cuphead Show , Shenmue , etc) the most anticipated of all, and by far, is The Last of Us series that runs to hands of Chernobyl manager Craig Mazin for HBO. For now, what we have been able to see from fiction are brief leaks from the filming set that have allowed viewers to get an idea of which sequences from the Naughty Dog game will be represented in the series, which will expand the original script with more characters and new frames. Following, yes, the main arc of Joel and Ellie.
Pedro Pascal , one of the actors of the moment thanks to his role as Mando in The Mandalorian and The Boba Fett book , has recently conducted an interview for Dualshockers in which he has assured that, in his opinion, the series will live up to the original game that will satisfy both fans of The Last of Us and those who are approaching this curious story full of monsters for the first time.
“I think the movie adaptation can more than live up to the original game. I have no doubt that we won’t let down fans of the game or new viewers.”
You may not be lacking in reason, because the team behind The Last of Us is really good and the most appropriate to deal with the theme that is addressed. Even Druckmann will be in charge of directing in at least one episode. Craig Mazin has already demonstrated his ability with the genre with the aforementioned Chernobyl fiction , and here he has a new opportunity to leave viewers speechless. The first season of the series will cover what was seen in the first game, published back in 2013. For now we do not have a premiere date for the series, which can be seen on HBO.
