The Last of Us: The Link Between Joel and Ellie Seen Through the Eyes of a Disney Pixar Artist


Through the pages of her Twitter profile, Disney Pixar’s Story Artist, Nicolle Castro, decides to honour the creative talent of the authors of Naughty Dog and the heroes of The Last of Us with a moving animated image dedicated to Ellie and Joel.

The two protagonists of the first chapter of the iconic post-apocalyptic series of the renowned subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment that gave rise (among other things) to the Uncharted saga are immortalized by the Pixar artist in one of the most representative moments of the adventure originating for PS3 and PS4.

The American designer of the prestigious studios Pixar Animations has in fact decided to reinterpret the scene of the main campaign in which little Ellie is forced, despite the inexperience and fear gave to her by her young age, to treat and care for the suffering Joel to help him recover after a bad fall from a horse.

The symbiotic relationship between Joel and Ellie experienced by TLOU players should take on different narrative and playful forms in The Last of Us Part 2 , or at least that’s what is suggested by the authors of Naughty Dog and Neil Druckmann showing us the image of one of the sessions in motion capture more ambitious than the next blockbuster exclusive on PlayStation 4 which, if you want to listen to the latest leaks, could arrive next May 22nd.
