Naughty Dog Releases First Look At Joel And Ellie From The Last Of Us Series
Naughty Dog has just revealed the very first image of Joel and Ellie from HBO’s The Last of Us TV series in celebration of The Last of Us Day.
First look at Joel and Ellie from The Last of Us TV series
Revealed on Naughty Dog’s official Twitter account, the image shared shows us Joel and Ellie, played by The Mandalorian himself, Pedro Pascal and young actress Bella Ramsey overlooking an empty field with what looks to be the remains of a crashed aeroplane out in the distance. The look of Joel and Ellie in the image looks like it was ripped straight out of the game with the clothes and backpacks looking very on point.
We don’t really know much about the series apart from some of the main cast and the fact that the show’s first season will adapt the first game with some “deviations“. Some of the other cast members who will appear in The Last of Us show is Gabriel Luna who will be playing Joel’s brother Tommy, Nico Parker play Sarah, Joel’s dead daughter and Merle Dandridge, who reprises her role as Marlene, the leader of the Fireflies. Merle Dandridge was the original voice and motion actress of Marlene in the original game.
Other actors joining the show include Jeffrey Pierce (the original voice actor for Tommy) who will play an original character, Perry, Con O’Neil who will play Bill, an associate of Joel, Murray Bartlett who will play Frank, Bill’s partner and Anna Torv who will play Joel’s partner, Tess.
Here’s the official synopsis of the show provided by HBO:
The story takes place 20 years after modern civilization has been destroyed. Joel, a hardened survivor, is hired to smuggle Ellie, a 14-year-old girl, out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What starts as a small job soon becomes a brutal, heartbreaking journey, as they both must traverse across the U.S. and depend on each other for survival.
There’s no confirmation on when The Last of Us show will air but there are rumours that it might be releasing sometime in 2022 and will be airing on HBO.
Pokdepinion: I’m pretty excited about this show. The Last of Us is one of my favourite games on the PS3 so here’s hoping the show would do the game justice.
