First Look at The Last of Us HBO Series’ Two Leads

Neil Druckmann was on hand to share a bunch of news on The Last of Us, including the first look at the two leads in the upcoming HBO adaptation of The Last of Us.

At Summer Game Fest, Naughty Dog co-president Neil Druckmann gave an update on The Last of Us HBO series, which he is co-developing. Druckmann even directed an episode for HBO and provided the first look at Pedro Pascal’s Joel and Bella Ramsey’s Ellie, this time their faces. The scene is from the episode Druckmann directed.

Druckmann also brought to the stage Joel’s voice actor Troy Baker and Ellie’s voice actor Ashley Johnson who will both have roles in the upcoming HBO series, but not as Joel or Ellie. Druckmann promises these roles are not winning cameos, but something substantial.

The Last of Us director also promised the HBO series will be the most faithful video game adaptation to date, which considering his involvement in both the game and show could be more than just a promise.

Alongside an update on the HBO series, Druckmann shared the first look at the “massive” new multiplayer mode and a full reveal of The Last of Us Part 1 remake.
