Ahead of its premiere next year, brand new behind-the-scenes footage from the set of HBO’s upcoming post-apocalyptic horror drama The Last of Us has surfaced online. A new set video for The Last of Us, which you can see below, gives us another look at Pedro Pascal’s Joel and Bella Ramsey’s Ellie as they film near-accurate footage from the game.
The Last of Us: Synopsis
When the two are with Henry and Sam, who were also revealed in a recent batch of set photography, Ellie goes through a small grate and opens a door for Joel in the sewer chapter. It’s not the same scene, although there are some similarities.
The events of the first game will be revisited in The Last of Us series, with the possibility of additional content based on the upcoming video game sequel. Game of Thrones alumni Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey will play Joel and Ellie respectively in the film.
