A look at Pascal Ramsey and Bella Ramsey playing the iconic Joel and Ellie have emerged as the cast of The Last Of US HBO Series, believed to be sharing an image from the game “Outbreak Day” — an important day for fandom, and all it took was seeing Ramsey’s hair to realize it was Pascal Ramsey. Fans got the first glimpse of their upcoming adaptation of the critically acclaimed video game series in one photo in a reveal on HBO’s official Twitter page from Neil Druckmann, series director and creative director of Naughty Dog. The photo was part of Sunday’s Last of Us Day of Celebration, which was also Joel’s birthday and the unveiling of the game.
We haven’t seen Pedro Pascal’s Joel or Bella Ramsey’s Ellie yet, but the first image from The Last of Us, HBO series, has given fans of the video game series and newcomers an idea of how the characters were adapted for the show. Fans of the game series will notice that Ellie and Joel are wearing the same clothes as in the game in this image. Then came another image from HBO showing Pascal and Ramsey being taken straight out of the game, thanks to the attention to detail by the costume and makeup crews.
The teaser image showed both the characters standing in an open field and looking at a crashed airplane. The first image from the HBO series The Last of Us is more than that, even if you notice that Pedro Pascal’s Joel and Bella Ramsey’s Ellie are equipped with backpacks and authentic game show care from the team behind the series, including The Last Of Us director Neil Druckmann, who put together the series. The image is still from the episode, but this is the first official look at the couple and although the proof of concept did not make it to the series, the two are looking over a large open space with the wreckage of an airplane perched atop a hill.
We finally get a glimpse of Joel and Ellie in The Last Of Us HBO Series. The image from the HBO series shows the couple looking at a plane crash in the distance. The new image gives us a first look at the couple, but we’ll have to wait a while to see the other confirmed cast members.
The actors will debut as the main characters in The Last Of Us HBO Series, the popular video game series adaptation for the Sony PlayStation franchise by creators Neil Druckmann and Craig Mazin. Fans of the popular video game franchise The Last of Us celebrated on Sunday The Last Of Us Day which ends with a surprising look at the upcoming HBO series.
Neil Druckmann, the author of the video game The Last of Us, who is also developing the TV series, expressed his excitement about the photo in a tweet and recalled how he reacted when he first saw the costumes of the two protagonists. Along with Neil Druzmann and Craig Mazin: “Pascal, this look at Pascal and Ramsey is iconic, Joel and Ellie give us two of the most iconic characters we’ve ever seen, and it’s emotional. Twenty years after civilization has fallen victim to a deadly fungus, Joel is tasked with taking Ellie (Bella Ramsey) to Boston, a designated quarantine zone, where the two characters Joel, Pedro Pascal, and Ellie embark on a heartbreaking journey as they struggle for survival in a zombie-infested, lonely world.
With this image, fans finally get to see Joel and Ellie transition from the game to the series, a process the video game had no problems with. For all the excitement surrounding The Last of Us, it seems like the perfect video game franchise to fit into a TV series, especially because it’s as cinematic as it is.
The last of us television series of HBO includes Gabriel Luna as Tommy, Joel’s brother Nico Parker, Sarah as Joel’s daughter, and Merle Dandridge as Marlene, her character and leader of the Fireworms. On September 26th, the day of the first outbreak, The Last Of Us sees the loss of Joel’s little daughter plunge the world into an apocalypse, through which players have navigated in the two games. The problem of adapting a video game that puts the viewer in an active role in storytelling is mitigated in HBO’s upcoming series The Last of Us, which is more based on the cinematic influence of video games. We’ll get to know more about the TV adaptation as we get closer to its release.
