Halo TV Show Photos Surface, Teasing The Covenant And Cortana
As television and film productions begin to return under new COVID-19 safe protocols, many of the planned video game adaptations for television and film are among the biggest in production. The Witcher season 2 has resumed filming in eastern Europe, and the Mortal Kombat movie reboot is on its way to being released next April. One other project confirmed to have resumed filming is the Halo TV show for Showtime. Fans have been excited to finally see the full-fledged Halo TV series, especially given that original Cortana voice actress Jen Taylor is back to reprise her role. Now, new production photos show promising progress and Taylor herself on set.
343 Industries producer Kiki Wolfkill recently shared photos taken at the Halo TV show production facilities in Budapest on the official Halo Waypoint website. The first photo shows what appears to be the hand of a Covenant soldier, based on the proportional sizes and number of fingers on the prosthetic’s hand. The second photo also shows original Cortana voice actress Jen Taylor on set in a chair fittingly labeled “Cortana”. Taylor seems to be holding a script, and not wearing any sort of costume or motion capture outfit, so it is likely she is on set to read her character’s lines for the benefit of the actors as they film scenes.
The third Halo TV show photo shows an ammo box labeled “UNSC Military Cartridges”, referencing the United Nations Space Command from the games. The fourth photo shows a counter full of familiar battle rifles that fans may also recognize from the long-running series. Currently, the Halo TV show is set to premiere some time in 2021. Although no specific month is given, it will likely be later in the year, given the amount of post-production work is likely needed to be completed. So far, the production team seems to be translating many elements from the games well into the real world. Hopefully though, we don’t see a bunch of UNSC soldiers in armor teabagging for minutes on end.
