New material from the set of The last of us Fans are circulating online wondering what or how much of the apocalypse the show will depict.
The last of us has been filming for some time, and this week saw producer Craig Mazin and his crew work on one of the more intense action sequences involving a large group of crew members and extras. In one of the leaked clips from the set, we can hear a crowd shouting “Freedom!” and “f—k Fedra!” which could indicate a skirmish between Fireflies and FEDRA or the Federal Disaster Response Agency.
In the games, FEDRA is one of the last branches of government controlling the quarantine zones and what remains of the US military. The Fireflies are another antagonistic faction in the game that Joel and Ellie have numerous encounters with throughout the game The last of us.
As the Fireflies grow in number and rebel against FEDRA in Pittsburgh, they manage to overthrow official authorities and retake the city. However, as Ellie and Joel traverse the urban area, they encounter the descendants of these renegade rebels known as the Hunters.
Judging by this footage, however, it appears that it is The last of us could contain flashback sequences to the conflict between the two factions. Unless this is contemporary, and instead of showing us the aftermath of the conflict, the show instead chooses to depict the two groups at war as Ellie and Joel trek through town.
I guess we’ll find out one way or another when the series comes to HBO next year, but given that this retelling is being produced for an entirely different medium, we should all expect a few changes here and there to accommodate the live-action formula.
