Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey Recreated Into The Last of Us Cutscenes

Joel and Ellie get the Pedro and Bella treatment in an impressive deepfake video.

If you have ever thought to yourself while playing or thinking about The Last of Us “I wonder what Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey would look like in this game?”, then we have a nice little treat for you. Stryder HD has provided fans with an incredibly done ‘deepfake’ video of Joel and Ellie by replacing our treasured due with the faces of Pedro and Bella who have recently been cast as the main actors in HBO’s The Last of Us TV show.

As you can see from the video, Stryder, who does conceptual fan art videos using some deepfake technology, plus other CGI techniques, has taken the cutscenes from Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us and merged in the faces of Pascal and Ramsey. It’s certainly a bit of a shock to those who are so used to seeing the original faces of Joel and Ellie but I really can’t be mad at this, it works pretty well and it also allows us to imagine how they could possibly look when we finally get to see HBO’s The Last of Us.

We have seen plenty of fan art showing Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Ellie but now that we (sort of) see them in action, I think I can see why they were chosen by HBO for the roles. Check it out for yourself below and let us know what you think in the comments if it works for you or not.

As of now, no release date for HBO’s The Last of Us has been set. We could, however, see the long-awaited HBO show crop up at the end of this year or early next year. Either way, it will certainly be one to watch out for and I personally can’t wait.
