The first season of the series The Last of Us on HBO to be based on the first game, although it will “deviate a lot” in some situations, according to Naughty Dog CEO and Co-Chairman Neil Druckmann. In an interview, Druckmann and Craig Mazin –showrunner series – reveal that the team doesn’t want to stray from the original story about Joel and Ellie’s journey, but there will be aspects that will change due to differences in the environment and to be fresh to those who know every detail of the 2013 original that last year received a sequel, The Last of Us Parte 2.
“We have talked at length that season 1 of the series deal with the first game,” they say on IGN, as well as “the philosophical foundations of history. As for superficial things, you should [un personaje] wear the same plaid shirt or the same red shirt as in the game? They may or may not appear, that’s less important to us than knowing the core of who these people are and their journey. “
“The situations are sometimes very similar. It’s funny to see my dialogue from the games in the HBO script. And sometimes they deviate a lot to give a better effect because we are trying different media. “One example is that in the game there is much more action for the user to know the shooting and stealth mechanics, but this is not necessary in a game. Serie. “[En el juego] you use more violence and showmanship than on a television series because you don’t need to teach people to use a gun. That’s something to be different, and at HBO they’ve been good at making that we move away from the action to focus on the drama of the character. Some of my favorite episodes have changed a lot from the story and I can’t wait for people to see them. “
“I just saw the first prostate test for him clicker -the infected of the saga- and it’s amazing. It’s great to see it come to physical life, “says Druckmann.
