In this trailer, we see familiar faces from the game being brought to life. What would uncharted be without Nathan Drake and Sully? The movie seems to be about Nathan Drake when he was younger with a Sully that has not had gray hairs yet.
From what I can gather from the trailer, it seems to be an original story that has not yet been explored in the games. However, there are easter eggs that are definitely a callback to the games.
One of the scenes shown are that of a pirate ship hidden in a cave. This is a callback to the pirate ship that was discovered in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. We also see Nathan falling out of a plane and navigated his way through cargo which is reminiscent of an epic scene from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. They even included Nathan’s iconic signature line “Oh crap!”
Also, at the end of the Uncharted movie trailer it reveals that the The Legacy of Thieves Collection, which is a bundle that includes Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, is set to release for the PlayStation 5 and PC in early 2022.
I really hope there will be more moments like this that will reference moments from the game because that would really be so cool. The movie is set to show in cinemas on February 18, 2022.
