Brace yourselves. 343 Industries just came out with a teaser trailer for a new live-action Halo web series: Forward Unto Dawn. LIVE-ACTION. As in, Prometheus + Avatar + District 9. Humans + costumes + killer CGI.
According to ComingSoon.net, the series follows the Master Chief and UNSC soldiers, one of whom saw Chief kick ass as a youngster and grew up inspired. Eventually he would become the Captain of the UNSC Infinity (the same ship that crash lands in the Halo 4 Trailer).
This all sounds like one of those interweaving, simultaneous storylines like the movies Crash/Traffic/Snatch, except with far cooler characters.
Forward Unto Dawn brings us one step closer to the Halo movie. Eventually it will be made. I just hope that the Halo Universe isn’t butchered like so many horrible Hollywood movies. It’s Halo. It’s too important.
And if you have been following my spot-on theory that the movie Prometheus is Halo and Halo is Prometheus, then you’ll love this: one of the confirmed enemies in Halo 4 is called the “Promethean crawler.” You can’t make this stuff up.
