  1. Halo is either going to be a massive hit for Paramount+ (which it badly needs) or a disappointment with Halo gamer fans who will know what they are looking for, they wont take any creative or political reimagining of characters and familiar story arcs lightly. The shows comparison with Disney+’s Mandalorian and Boba Fett is already being made.
