More than 20 years after the first aureola game released at Xbox and changed videogames forever, the property finally arrived on television. Paramount + debuted the first episode of aureola on Thursday and the fans have loved the opportunity to see Master Chief come alive. However, for the surprise of him, the character known for the helmet of him does not really keep it placed throughout the first episode.
In one of the final scenes of the aureola at the premiere, the master chief takes off the helmet to win Quan’s confidence, a young woman whose home was destroyed by the covenant. It is possible that the fans did not expect to see Paul Schreiber’s face so early in the series, but there is a good reason for it.
“I think that when we set out to make the program, our approach was that we wanted to tell the story of a character and we wanted to tell a character story with the master chief,” said Executive Producer Kiki Wolfkill to comicbook.com. “And, ultimately, that meant telling a story about John, the man inside the armor, which is not someone who experiences as much as a player in the games. We have described it in an extended fiction and exists in that way, but this is really an opportunity for us to spend nine hours taking John in this arch of characters. And thus understand that, and once we entered the story, it was very clear that we needed to see who that person was, and we needed to be able to observe the journey of him and watch him on the journey of him while lying with the role of him as boss Teacher and as a person ».
The elimination of Master Chief’s helmet at the premiere had to be a significant moment, both for the characters and for the audience, or would not have fallen well among the fans. Removing the helmet is a big problem, so there had to be a good reason for John to do it.
“Then, with this, making it the way we did at this moment with Quan, in the same way that there was a reason in history so that he took off his helmet, we also wanted him to feel significant for the audience,” Wolfkill. continued. “We wanted him to take him away for an important reason. And as you pointed out, that moment with Kwan, it is a moment in which he is trying to gain the confidence of him. And trust is not something he, as a master chief necessarily needs. It is not a critical tool in the toolbox of him because he is the master chief, and he receives orders and does what he has to do. And this is a moment in which you begin to see him responding in a very human way. And so, having that moment tied at the hull exit, he felt like a good complement. “
