The Last of Us Updates account has shared a video showing a scene featuring Joel and Ellie horseback riding through a university. Of course, the video itself doesn’t actually reveal much else, as it’s taken from afar and isn’t the greatest quality, but it does seemingly confirm The University chapter from the game is recreated in the show in some capacity.
The Last of Us is a film about a group of people who The HBO TV series is already filming, and a new video from the set confirms that the programme will take place in the same area as the original game. Obviously, it’s unclear how faithfully the first season of the programme will adapt the game it’s based on, but it appears that the show will utilise recognisable places in addition to famous people.
In terms of consequence, The University chapter isn’t actually that noteable. Not a ton of consequence happens during it, but it’s by far one of the best set pieces of the game, and one many fans will be eager to see revisited. That said, there’s already a difference between the show and the game in regards to this scene. In the game, it happens during the fall. As you can see, late November where the show is filming is more winter than fall.
“Right now, my primary focus is The Last of Us. So excited to complete my work there on season one and then we’re going to have a really fun adventure there,” said Luna. I look forward to everyone having an opportunity to check that out whenever it may come out. I’m not in the scheduling department, but it’d be sooner than later.”
The Last of Us is currently filming. There’s no word of when filming will wrap, when the show will be revealed, or when it will release. All we know is that it’s been filming for several months. That said, Gabriel Luna, who is playing Tommy Miller for the show, did recently tell us that the show is coming sooner rather than later.
