I don't know much about the series, but I've always said that a Halo movie should be in the style of a Mad Max movie where it focuses constantly moving through the planet.

As usual, some controversy (or more like sorta racist nerd rage) has followed the casting news. Captain Keyes and daughter Miranda Keyes are being played by black actors.

I don't mind the casting on the race subject one bit. But this kind of change does make the story tough to reconcile. By which I mean this is clearly a different take on the character. There's a decent chance I'll even like them better in the roles. But I won't quite be able to see it as "halo," and more as "tv's version of halo."

It's just my own complicated nerd s***. Happens constantly with star wars, between the many books and games that stomped all over each other before the EU reset.

But oh well. Supposing it ends up a good show, I'll get to watching (sometime in the next decade hopefully?) and forget I even thought about this.

We’ve already chiefs face, so that mystery is out the window.

I coulda swore I posted this before...



Speaking on a panel today at Reboot Develop, 343 executive producer Kiki Wolfkill briefly touched on how the company is approaching the adaptation. Respecting canon is one of 343’s priorities, according to Wolfkill, but not at the expense of doing what makes sense.

For example, the Halo games never let us see Master Chief’s face, adding to the character’s mystique (if people called John can have mystique)... “there are some details that we may shift, but we want to respect the fans and what they love about the IP.”

The producer went on to say that 343 understand it will never please everyone. There will always be some people who are upset, but it will do what’s right for the nine episode series. “We may shift dates, locations, or ethnicity of characters,” Wolfkill said.
