ANIMATSU ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS
*HALO: THE FALL OF REACH AVAILABLE ON DVD AND BLU-RAY*
After releasing the live action features, “Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn” and “Halo: Nightfall”, Animatsu Entertainment and Platform Entertainment are ready for the next chapter of the epic Halo saga: On December 7th, “Halo: The Fall of Reach” will reveal the beginning of the well-known science fiction universe on DVD and Blu-ray.
Based on the Halo novel of American writer Eric Nylund, the 65-minute feature tells the dramatic tale of the origin and intrigue behind the SPARTAN program that propelled characters like the Master Chief and Dr. Catherine Halsey into the pantheon of Halo lore. The story reveals the events that brought Master Chief and Blue Team together, including their Spartan training and their daring mission to strike back at the Covenant during the first days of the deadly alien invasion.
The animation is produced and directed by SEQUENCE, the award-winning Vancouver-based animation studio responsible for the “Terminals” featured in Halo 4 and Halo 2: Anniversary, and this marks their most ambitious and high-fidelity Halo animation yet.
With more than 65 million copies sold, Halo is an award-winning collection of properties that have transcended video games and grown into a global entertainment phenomenon. “Halo: The Fall of Reach” will be released on DVD with an RRP of £12.99 and on Blu-ray with an RRP of £15.99 on December 7th.
“We’re very excited to be bringing the latest instalment from the Halo universe to the UK” said Andrew Hewson, Marketing Manager at Animatsu Entertainment. “Fans have played the games, read the books, enjoyed the live action releases and now have the chance to immerse themselves in this amazing animated feature, where we discover the origins of Halo’s most iconic character, the Master Chief!”
