Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn  

Synopsis

Based on the globally renowned ‘Halo®’ franchise, the new live-action drama Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn delivers a dramatic and personal story of heroism and sacrifice.

The story is set against the backdrop of the United Nations Space Command (UNSC) military academy, where a group of highborn cadets are training to join the ongoing war with the outer colonial planets. For generations, humans traveled the stars and worked together to settle worlds under the banner of the UNSC. But that peace has been shattered by insurrectionists, causing a galaxy-spanning civil war to break out. 

Among these cadets, Thomas Lasky struggles with doubts about the war and the burden of expectations he may not be able to carry. As he comes to terms with his potential as a military leader, the academy comes under attack from a terrifying and brutal alien assault. Lasky must fight to protect the academy and its students alongside a mysterious ally – an armoured super-soldier known only as the Master Chief – as their fates become entwined for decades to come. 

Written by Todd Helbing and Aaron Helbing (Smallville, Spartacus) and directed by Stewart Hendler (H+, Sorority Row), the series boasts a diverse cast of established and up-and-coming Hollywood talent and a top-tier production team. The drama features specialized costumes and armour designed by Legacy Effects, the company behind Avatar and The Hunger Games, alongside the most advanced digital effects from a design team led by Primetime Emmy® award-winning John Sullivan (The Pacific). 

Featuring groundbreaking live-action drama and strong character-driven storytelling, Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn offers action-packed entertainment that will appeal to both longtime fans and newcomers to the Halo universe.
