But to answer your question, probably yes.

Of course, The Codex doesn't really have THAT much to do with the Halo universe anyway. Sure, the Spartans are called Spartans and the Covenant are called the Covenant, but when you start to think about all the differences, we've already veered pretty far from the world of Halo. For example, the Covenant only has one species, the Elites, and they fill military, religious, and engineering roles onscreen. The Spartans are considerably less professional than the Master Chief and there are many more of them, organized in a structure unlike that in the games. Our major Forerunner structure is never mentioned in the games, and we never really mention the Halos. The Codex responds to the Seraph Captain, while the Halos only respond to Humans, and it gave him powers unlike anything seen in the games. And perhaps most importantly, our series never even mentions the Flood, which is a huge element of the games.

So when you see The Reclaimer, will you be able to visualize what the story would have been in the Halo Universe? Probably. But if you were watching The Codex in live-action for the first time and the Spartans and Covenant had different names and design aesthetics, would you make the connection?

So is that a yes to being invited to the premier (or is it premiere?)?

But if you were watching The Codex in live-action for the first time and the Spartans and Covenant had different names and design aesthetics, would you make the connection?-I am sure most could, I could at least. An example, if you made The Reclaimer as a live action then you probably wouldn't have any really confused fans since why watch the last movie when there are two others before it? If you watched Pirates 3, then would you understand it? No. Thats why before people go and see a sequel they watch the prequel. (rhyming) So to answer your question Nerrolken I am sure people can make the connection between covenant and (insert alien name here). I am certain that we, the fans, could visualize the story as if it was in Halo.

From what I could tell, you just reinforced my point. What I meant was that, while The Codex works as a Halo machinima series, it doesn't necessarily have to be related to Halo. With only a few changes, a live-action version of The Codex could be separated enough from the Halo franchise that a person who'd never heard of the current machinima series would never know there was anything more.

Here's an example: the massively popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show was actually based on a movie made a couple of years earlier. For those who saw the movie, the connection was obvious. But for those who started with the TV show, they wouldn't necessarily guess that there was any source material that came before.

That's how I feel about a live-action Codex franchise: for fans of the machinima series, the connections will be obvious, but to those new to the story, it won't be similar enough to make the connection back to Halo.

Same thing happened with Stargate SG-1. Good TV show made from an awesome movie.

Buffy. And Stargate. And awesome should never be used in the same sentence together. Ever.

I think that's kind of too far away to say...
But in any case, I'm not so sure about what movie Nerrolken was referring to with Buffy since there was a Buffy movie... and I can't remember the exact plot of the movie but was the tv series a spin off or a continuation of the same story?
I'm fairly sure that the stargate movie and tv show are all cannon in the same story, with the exception of different actors but I can't say the same for Buffy which might've been Nerrolken's point. If the movie and subsequent tv series follow the exact same plot then it's not really a valid point here is it? I may not be understanding this correctly at all but that's what I'm pulling from this at the moment.

It was half-way between a reboot and a sequel. They vaguely reference that things from the movie have happened, but they end up covering the same ground again to re-establish the franchise. The point was to give an example of a franchise shifting its primary medium and restarting the story, but still offering new material to interest repeat viewers.

The original question that started us on this little quest was basically "will we be able to visualize what The Reclaimer would have been like in Halo, when we watch it in live-action?" And my answer, using the example of the Buffy movie/tv show shift, was that fans of our machinima series would indeed be able to piece together how a machinima version of The Reclaimer would have played out, but that people who had never heard of machinima would not need to educate themselves in order to appreciate the movie.

Sticking with the Joss Whedon theme, think of the film Serenity: it is most deeply appreciated if you've seen Firefly, but you can still enjoy Serenity even if you never knew there was a TV show that came before.

Ugh...Serenity. It was an awesome movie, but it was too much of a film for people to watch the series, not a film for those who had seen it. No, and I more or less mean no, questions from the series were answered, aside from confirming River's mind reading and such.

It is odd to observe that these sapiens still wish for something they cannot have, even after so long interesting.
Still I believe the corperation ave already been thwarted by the sapien known as Martin O Donnel with the release of his IP. Still I am glad you all still wish to have this project reinstated, as after archiving and observing the past series I have come to the conclusion that the sapiens involved are highly skilled, and should be allowed to finish their work.
