More like Master Hottie, am I right?
Paramount Plus describes the story of the live-action adaptation as follows:

The series stars Pablo Schreiber (the Master Chief, Spartan John-117), Natascha McElhone (Dr. Halsey), Jen Taylor (Cortana), Bokeem Woodbine (Soren-066), Shabana Azmi (Admiral Margaret Parangosky), Natasha Culzac (Riz-028), Olive Gray (Miranda Keyes), Yerin Ha (Kwan Ha Boo), Bentley Kalu (Vannak-134), Kate Kennedy (Kai-125), Charlie Murphy (Makee) and Danny Sapani (Captain Jacob Keyes).
On December 8, 2021, the newest video game in the franchise, Halo Infinite, was released. As part of the promotion for the game, it included a live-action trailer. That trailer had fans in a tizzy and hoping the Paramount Plus series would have a similar feel. After watching the trailer, we think fans can be pleased. But, what do you think?
Stream the premiere of the new original series Halo on Thursday, Mar. 24, exclusively on Paramount+.
