The Last of Us is a franchise all too well known to PlayStation users, able to sell several million copies and becoming one of the must-haves for Sony consoles.
After the success of the second installment of the series, available on PS4 console, Naughty Dog has decided to turn Joel and Ellie’s adventures into a TV series.
While waiting to see Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey in action as the two protagonists, someone has well thought of making a short film based on the truly exceptional saga.
As also reported by GameSpot, director Tommy Jackson has now brought to the attention of fans The Last of Us: Ellie’s Revenge, an incredible fan film based on the franchise.
Attention, spoilers on the main plot of the second chapter follow.
The plot of the amateur film sees the young Ellie seeking revenge for the death of her “adoptive father” Joel, thus drawing inspiration in all respects from the second chapter of the series.
Despite being a video created by fans and for fans, the short film was produced on a total budget of well 10 thousand dollars and a cast of about 20 people.
Just below, the complete video lasting about fifteen minutes:
The final result, net of the limits imposed by the “homemade” origin of the project, is in any case definitely stunning and in line with the style of the game.
Neil Druckmann has recently confirmed that the real film dedicated to The Last of Us was canceled out of fear of making a product too focused on action.
Jasmila Žbanić (COM)Quo vadis, Aida) and Ali Abbasi (Border) have in any case been chosen to give life to the adaptation of the HBO series, which promises to be more faithful to the original spirit of the game.
