The first official images from the long-awaited Uncharted movie have arrived. Tom Holland, who plays Nathan Drake in the movie, and Nolan North, who voices Drake in the video game series, posted the images on social media this morning. One of the new images is a peak behind-the-scenes of Holland and North meeting up, though it’s unclear what they were talking about. The official social media account for the movie also posted the same images, with this quote: “The adventure begins. ‘Meet the shadowy future without fear and conquer the unknown.’ – Ferdinand Magellan.”

While Tom Holland is portraying a younger version of Nathan Drake than what fans are used to seeing in the Uncharted video games, he does look very much like the character. Nolan North says, “Like looking into a mirror! Proud to have Tom Holland continuing the Drake legacy! Absolutely smashing it!” The other two images feature an artifact and an open book with famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan shown. It’s unclear how these two images fit into the main storyline, but we do know there is going to be a lot of exploring going on for the young Nathan Drake.
Uncharted has been in development for a number of years. The video game franchise, which includes, 2007’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, 2009’s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, 2011’s Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, and 2016’s Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, are all cinematic. Fans of the game have been waiting to see Nathan Drake on the big screen ever since the first game hit the shelves, and for a long time, it was going to be Mark Wahlberg making it happen.
