We’ve heard rumors and murmurings about a Halo television or movie for years, but now things have really begun to ramp up. We have crew attached and even some of the cast for the upcoming Showtime Halo television series that is slated to start filming within this year. However, if you’re looking to get more information about the series and the overall thoughts on going with the television route, you may want to divert your attention to Kiki Wolfkill.
In a recent interview with Shack News, Kiki Wolfkill who is the executive producer for 343 Industries, spoke about the Halo television adaptation. Overall, Kiki went over how making a live-action series is quite different in comparison to a video game. While we don’t have too many details yet, it does appear that 343 Industries is working closely with the creative team behind the television series while also taking notes from the team who brought out Game of Thrones. Being a fan of the novels, Kiki stated that she was surprised when the HBO hit made some changes in comparison to the novels but was pleasantly surprised to see just why the changes were made and how it made for big moments.
As a result, it was clear to 343 Industries that they not only trust their creative decisions but also learn to trust the creative team working on the series. Furthermore, there was a reason behind going with a television route instead of a film. If you look back at the past video game adaptation films, it can be hard to recreate experiences due to the time limitations. Instead of a feature length film, television would allow for a greater time slot in order to build up character stories and lore.
We don’t have a release window for when the television series will air but as of right now, production is going on and the creative teams have been really diving into the story viewers will be digesting when it finally does release.
