Hi everyone, Spartan here with Site Poll 106, and it's not good news.

 

 

Looking back at the last poll, 105, there was quite a bit of hope left for this community. It's always great to see you guys and the passion that remains for this site. But speaking of hope, we're gonna need a lot of it for what's to come in this poll post...

Will 343 correct the canon-breaking?

 

 

First off, please read these if you haven't yet: https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/halo-series-showtime-cast-1203398567/ 
 
There's a lot wrong here, and it's disappointing because I had strong hopes for this series after hearing about how they'd stick to canon and appreciate it. Lets get into it briefly:
 
1. Jacob and Miranda Keyes have changed ethnicity. No, this has nothing to do with the actors/actresses. I don't know who they are or how good they are, nor do I care, as it's irrelevant. Canon is being broken in a huge way here. Jacob would have been around for two decades if this show airs in 2021, you really shouldn't disrespect the origin of two pivotal individuals like that. Cast them for another role, or (if possible) remove them from the casting. You cannot expect anyone to believe such a drastic change in appearance is natural, this is truly offending especially after being told the canon would be stuck to, yet the most basic of things is apparently not being appreciated here.
 
2. The roles of Jacob and his daughter. Unless this was set right before Reach, Jacob Keyes was not a Captain, get the rank right. And what, is Miranda a scientist now? Get real. Also, no, Catherine and Jacob were never married, she is not his ex-wife.
 
3. The Covenant wouldn't even be able to grasp the concept of raising a human, Makee would have been slaughtered like the rest. The Covenant didn't even take prisoners, unless for torture or interrogation, no one would raise a human child.
 
These are the main points, though I'm sure there may have been one or two other things, this is just what stands out the most. Lets leave Halo untouched by Hollywood diversity, keep it real, the way it has always been.
 
 I personally wouldn't mind if this series is delayed indefinitely, just get it right. Infinite is looking to come out 5 years after H5, and we're mostly ok with that, because as long as it gets done right then please, take all the time needed. Some people have already given up on the show, but there's still potential for corrections to be made. Halo has one strong theme: hope.

 

 

 

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Spartan out.

Let's just declare it as non-canon and not watch it. If they're going to mess up established lore that badly, it's not worth our time.

People have commented that, and it would certainly have to be non-canon if they release it like this, lets hope that's not the case.

i hope they just explode the old canon and make the tv series canon. Erase the old canon like an etch a sketch, it never happened. /s

 

but seriously I'll watch the first episode and make my judgment then, but as of now i'm not looking forward to it.

It seems to be a kind of twist to get people who arent very familiar with the games to watch the episodes. Its really disappointing to see that they've decided that cutting out parts and adding others in is acceptable, but whatever I suppose. They did the same thing to the How to Train your Dragon series, if you've read any of the books you'd know that the two have very little in common. But as Pwn said, ill watch the first episode but im not as excited for it as I was before I read the post


@brownE7 Also Canon and non-canon is like whats established game lore and what isnt. Like the Halo rings are canon, but the Halo rings fried in batter and served with ketchup to Halsey's kids the Arbiter and Noble 6 is not


Enjoy it while it lasts!
