Mass Effect TV Show May Finally Happen Thanks To Amazon

Amazon Studios is said to be in talks with Amazon Studios to create a live-action series based on the Mass Effect video game series. Mass Effect has been a long-running fantasy sci-fi/RPG franchise by Electronic Arts and BioWare. The series centers on Commander Shepard, a human-alien team that travels through a fictional galaxy to battle against various alien beings. Shepard was the main character in the first trilogy, but Scott Ryder or Sara Ryder were chosen depending on which player chose.

Amazon has just launched The Wheel of Time. It stars Rosamund Pike, who the streamer reports as a huge success. The streamer reports that they are currently producing a huge Lord of the Rings series. It is due to be released on September 2, 2022. A second season is in the works. Wheel of Time received a green light for a second season in May. Amazon also has Season 3 and Unstoppable season 2 in their pockets for next year.

Deadline reports that the streamer wants to go further into space for their next acquisition, a series adaptation Mass Effect. Other than the fact that it is a series for Amazon, no further information was given about the strategy or concept of adapting. Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, said that the studio is looking more deeply into their fantasy and genre lineups:

“We will continue to invest in fantasy genres of all types, we have a genre focused team on the ground at Studios who work tirelessly alongside our creative partners on those slates. You can look forward to even more.”

 

Salke continues to explain Amazon’s process of building original I.P. He says that Covid presented many challenges but that they were able to overcome them. The Wheel of Time debut was long overdue and marked the beginning of many more rollouts in the coming year. She said it was a small step towards the solid content slate, which had been delayed for many reasons.

Mass Effect could be a strong and extensive property for Amazon that will likely last a long time. Mass Effect has a wealth of material that Amazon can fill in another gap in its ever-growing content library and bring it closer to Netflix. Although it would not be inexpensive, such a show is still within reach of many. Amazon has already demonstrated its willingness to compete with Netflix and HBO Max. Mass Effect could be the next big thing if it is done correctly. It doesn’t matter how it turns out; there is potential for something extraordinary.

Mass Effects is one of the most loved game franchises of recent memory. It introduces players to a unique, vast, and complex world of science fiction over its three games. While fans were disappointed by the Mass Effect, Andromeda spin-off, the series has seen a revival and has re-entered mainstream consciousness since the Mass Effect’s legendary edition launch earlier this year.

Developers and other employees from the original games who worked over a decade ago started to share Mass Effect Easter eggs and fun facts about the game. Fans also started to rediscover old tweets that were previously overlooked.

Jonathan Cooper, a Twitter user, shared one of these interesting facts. He said that the location where the motion capture was used for the first Mass Effect game was the same as the Silver Screen’s most loved classic, Gone with the Wind. Gone with the Wind, a 1939 film, is often regarded as a cinematic masterpiece. It follows Scarlett O’Hara’s life on a Southern plantation during the American Civil War. Gone with the Wind is almost four hours long. However, it’s important to remember that Gone with the Wind has many problematic elements in modern times. These include the stereotypical portrayal of Black Americans with characters such as Hattie McDaniel’s Mammy.

Mass Effect’s Connection to Gone With The Wind

Cooper’s November 2017 tweet confirms that Cooper flew to Giant Studios at the Culver Studios lot in Los Angeles to film the first gameplay actions for Mass Effect. This was the original soundstage used in Gone with the Wind. Cooper jokes that Gone With the in’s influence may have extended to the Mass Effect trilogy. This also inspired the beloved and critically acclaimed romances.

Other movies shot on the Culver Studios lot include the Skull Island scene from 1933’s King Kong, Carrie (1976), and E.T. (1981), RoboCop (1987), Beetlejuice, and Hook, as well as The Matrix and Hook. Culver Studio is a well-known name in the film industry. While it doesn’t say much about Mass Effects gameplay or story quality, it’s fascinating to learn that the game was shot at the same historic locations as some of Hollywood’s most iconic movies.
