Bella Ramsey & “The Last of Us” FYC Event in California

Bella, Craig Mazin, and Neil Druckmann attended a For Your Consideration event in California regarding THE LAST OF US. Sadly Pedro (Joel Miller) as he’s likely busy completing some of his other film projects before they all go back to work on THE LAST OF US in early 2024 in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Alberta, Canada.

Bella Ramsey Attends The 2023 Critic’s Choice Celebration of Cinema & Television

With the SAG/AFTRA strke over, the trappings of Hollywood has been ramping back up. Today I have three events for you. The first of those is Bella attending the above event. With her was Keivonn Woodard who played Sam Burell in episodes four and five of THE LAST OF US.

Bella Ramsey Talks “Chicken Run, The Last of Us” and What They Have in Common

Bella Ramsey Talks “Chicken Run, The Last of Us” and What They Have in Common

Bella recently sat down with the people at Collider to talk about her upcoming animated film CHICKEN RUN 2: DAWN OF THE NUGGET where she voices the role of Molly. She also addressed the upcoming season two of THE LAST OF US where she plays the award nominated role of Ellie Williams. She also briefly mentioned her recent BBC series TIME where she plays Kelsey Morgan, a young woman who is serving time in prison while in the later stages of pregnancy. A role Bella has called, “Terrifying.” I have her episodes recorded and will doing screencaps for the episodes soon. Keep an eye out.

What Do Bella Ramsey’s ‘Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget’ & ‘The Last of Us’ Characters Have in Common?

More than you think… Ramsey talks TLOU Season 2, voice acting for Molly the chicken, & why she likes performing “bizarre” efforts.

The chickens are back, baby! Unfortunately, so is Mrs. Tweedy in Aardman Studio’s Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget, the stop-motion sequel hitting Netflix 23 years after its predecessor. Both Rocky and Ginger return, now voiced by Zachary Levi and Thandiwe Newton, but they’re parents now, and their headstrong little chick is voiced by none other than The Last of Us star Bella Ramsey.

In Dawn of the Nugget, Ramsey plays a character named Molly. Molly, being the daughter of the (overly) confident Rocky and the ambitious Ginger, gives her parents a run for their money. While speaking with Collider’s Steve Weintraub, they discuss what it’s like recording for animation, how the experience on Chicken Run was different than working on Hilda, and why they like the “bizarre” task of recording efforts. They also talk about Molly’s “feistiness” and the other traits that this character shares with Ramsey’s role as Ellie in TLOU.

Finally, with the SAG-AFTRA strike ending and Pedro Pascal possibly joining the MCU, Ramsey comments on when fans can expect The Last of Us Season 2 to begin filming, as well as what they’re most looking forward to tackling while filming, and the Dina and Ellie storyline. For all of this and more, check out the full interview in the video at the top of the article, or you can read the transcript below.

COLLIDER: I’ve really enjoyed your work the last few years, but hypothetically, say someone has never seen anything you’ve done before. What is the first thing you’d like them watching and why?

BELLA RAMSEY: What a great question. I’d love people to watch Time, which is a show that’s just come out on BBC, because that’s just so opposite from me, and I think it’s a cool one. I think it’s an interesting watch, as well, but also Chicken Run. It’s also very good.

What surprised you about working on Chicken Run and voicing a character, Molly, in maybe ways you didn’t expect?

RAMSEY: I voiced some animation before. I’d done an animation for several years called Hilda, but this was an entirely new team. And I’d got used to that way of working with the Hilda team. So, it was a learning curve for me to adapt to new ways of doing things. I’m always blown away just by the process of animation, and the sound engineers, just being in a studio and watching them fiddle around with the buttons and the sliders. I was remote recording most of it when I was in Canada, or wherever I’ve been, so just the fact that it can be done from literally anywhere is remarkable, I think.

Same thing with interviewing people who are in London, and someone else is in LA.

RAMSEY: Well, exactly!

‘Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget’ vs. ‘The Last of Us’

Do you see any similarities between Molly and Ellie or do you think they’re polar opposites?

RAMSEY: No, there are definitely similarities. I think they both have a similar feistiness. I think they’re similar in that Molly is just this curious, intelligent little chicken — which obviously Ellie isn’t a chicken — but this curious, intelligent little chicken who wants to explore the world and thinks that she’s brave and can do anything. But then you see moments of her being actually incredibly terrified, and I think that’s the same with Ellie. She comes across as this very headstrong adult most of the time, but then you see these moments of her just being like a terrified little child. So, I think they have similarities in that regard.

Do you enjoy recording efforts, or do you dread them?

RAMSEY: I quite like efforts. I think that they’re so bizarre, and so unlike anything that you do in live-action. When do you ever make yourself make an “oof” sound, you know? It’s so weird. Yeah, I quite like efforts. I see a sheet of efforts, and I’m like, “Yeah, this is gonna be fun.” Also, you just like rattle through them. Sometimes, trying to get a very particular “oof” is pretty funny.

Yeah, I’ve spoken to a lot of people and they tell me that the efforts are always at the end of the day, because you just shred your voice.

RAMSEY: Yeah, exactly. Especially if there are screams.

The Unintentional Veganism to ‘Chicken Run’ Pipeline

Exactly. I read that you’re vegan. I’m curious if you had any sort of personal connection to being part of Chicken Run because of that, or not at all.

RAMSEY: I actually didn’t think about it when I signed on to do Chicken Run. I got the audition. I didn’t pick up on that similarity, in terms of me being vegan. I’ve never had meat. I grew up pescatarian, and I went vegan. So I didn’t really make that connection, but I think that’s because it’s always been a part of my life, not eating meat, that I wasn’t like, “Oh, this is cool.” But now I think about it, yeah, I absolutely am behind the idea that we can watch this fun animated movie about chickens and then by the end of it be like, “Hm, maybe I don’t want to eat a chicken nugget.” I think that’s cool.

Bella Ramsey on Ellie and Dina in ‘The Last of Us’ Season 2

Obviously I am a huge fan of The Last of Us, like the rest of the world. I’m just curious, do you know when you’re actually starting to film Season 2?

RAMSEY: Next year.

Do you actually know or you don’t know?

RAMSEY: No, I do actually know. I mean, I temporarily know. Things are changing all the time, I think, with the strikes. Obviously, now they’re finished; that’s amazing. We can actually get going, and we can talk about it, but I think it’s delayed a couple of things, and availability and stuff. So, we’ll see. But it will happen at some point early next year, which is exciting.

I’m sure the studio is like, “Please start filming as soon as you can.” My last thing for you about The Last of Us is, I’m sure you’ve played the game, I know you know the story, what are you most excited for in Season 2 to film? Is there a sequence or a scene or something that you’re already thinking about?

RAMSEY: Yeah, lots of things. I’m excited for the really intense stuff because I did a bit of that in Season 1, obviously. But to do that and, actually, more physical scenes because Ellie is obviously more physically fit in Season 2. I love stunt stuff and waking up with bruises the next day and finding myself with a black eye, just because it feels so good to have done it. So I’m looking forward to doing that stuff, and also the Dina storyline. Obviously, I had the one episode in Season 1 with Ellie and Riley, but to have it as a storyline throughout the whole of the second game in terms of Ellie and Dina is really exciting.

Chicken Run: Dawn of the Nugget will premiere on Netflix on December 15 in the U.S.

“The Last of Us” To Begin Filming Season 2 in January 2024

“The Last of Us” To Begin Filming Season 2 in January 2024

We have a THE LAST OF US seaseon two update. According to many sources the start of filming will begin on January 7, 2024 in Vancouver, British Columbia. After the 118 day SAG/AFTRA Strike this is such good news. The bad news is we won’t be getting anything until 2025. My guess is around the same time as season one aired. HBO likes to do that. So we’ll have Bella and Pedro back on our screens then.

The Last of Us: Production List Has Season 2 Filming in January 2024

It appears Neil Druckmann & Craig Mazin’s Pedro Pascal/Bella Ramsey-starring The Last of Us Season 2 will be filming Season 2 in early 2024.

Earlier this month, HBO & Max CEO and Chairman Casey Bloys announced that production on the second season of Neil Druckmann & Craig Mazin’s Pedro Pascal (Joel) & Bella Ramsey (Bella)-starring The Last of Us would begin in early 2024. Since that time, a major event happened that made that time frame much more of a reality. Yup, SAG-AFTRA is poised to ratify a new deal this week – with the 118-day strike officially coming to an end last week. Now, we have an updated production list that went live this week that lists a film shoot for the second season in Vancouver, BC, Canada, beginning on January 7, 2024.

Here’s a look at the production listing – followed by a look back at what we know about the season and the series’ future so far:

The Last of Us: Craig Mazin of Season 2 & Beyond

In an interview with Variety from earlier in the summer, Mazin discussed how a 2025 debut for the second season was still workable (but less & less so the longer the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes continue), confirmed that Season 3 will happen (as long as the viewers keep watching), and addressed the possibility of familiar faces returning in flashbacks (and why they have no plans to mess with that “beautiful” episode).

“The Last of Us” Could Still Make Its 2025 Delivery Date – For Now: “We had a little more flexibility, I think, than normally just because we had to wait a little bit longer any way to line up production with the weather. A lot of what we do is outside, and so we had a schedule that weirdly hasn’t been immediately impacted. But we’re getting pretty close; we can’t keep our original start dates forever, obviously. If these strikes go much longer, we inevitably will have to push, and that hurts us, and it hurts the audience, and it hurts HBO. We all, everybody wants to get back to work; I think everybody that’s actually doing the work, including the network people who are with us on the ground, I think everybody just wants to get this solved. So fingers crossed.”

“The Last of Us” Season 3 Will Happen As Long As Viewers Keep Watching: “It’s going to be more than one season. There’s more story, so this show will not end with Season 2 unless people don’t watch it, and we’ll get canceled. Barring that, we will be doing some things exactly the way they were in the game. We’re going to do other things that are in the game, and we’re gonna do some things that are in the game, but we’re gonna do them differently in our own method. No matter if you have played the game or not. You will be surprised as the season unfolds. We have some interesting twists and turns.”

Could Melanie Lynskey, Storm Reid & Others Return via Flashbacks? “There’s always a chance for everything. With us, you never know, and we obviously don’t confine ourselves by timelines. People who are dead sometimes reappear, and sometimes we meet people that we didn’t even know, and then we find out that they are somebody.”

Mazin on Why There Won’t Be Another Bill (Nick Offerman) & Frank (Murray Bartlett) Episode: “What you won’t see is, for instance, another very special episode with Bill and Frank; we aren’t going to milk it. When we do something that we think is beautiful, we let it be as it is and find other beautiful things to do.”

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Ready To Go After Strikes Says Neil Druckmann

“The Last of Us” Season 2 Ready To Go After Strikes Says Neil Druckmann

According to Neil Druckmann, creator of the game and co-showrunner of the series, THE LAST OF US season two will be ready to go as soon as the current WGO and SAG-AFTRA strike is over. This is great news for the show. Rest below.

The Last Of Us Season 2 Is “Ready To Go” When Strikes End, Neil Druckmann Says

“As far as the next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything.”

Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has teased that The Last of Us Season 2 has been fully outlined, though production cannot actually begin until the ongoing Hollywood strikes come to an end. In the same interview with Entertainment Weekly, Druckmann was asked about Naughty Dog’s next game, but he didn’t give anything away.

“We’ve outlined all of Season 2 and we’re ready to go as soon as the strike ends,” Druckmann said, referring to the ongoing writer and actor strikes.

This follows on from what showrunner Craig Mazin recently said, when he explained that Season 2 was already mapped out. Mazin said the first episode was written and sent to HBO, just hours before the strike was called.

Going back to Druckmann, he was asked directly about a third Last of Us game, but he didn’t give anything away. “As far as the next game at Naughty Dog, I can’t say anything,” he said. “My comms director over there will slaughter me.”

Naughty Dog confirmed in March this year that it had chosen its next game. Druckmann acknowledged the hype for a potential Last Of Us Part 3, but stopped short of confirming if that will indeed be the team’s next project.

In addition to working on the Last of Us TV series and the next Naughty Dog game, Druckmann is consulting on the Universal Studios haunted house attraction themed around The Last of Us.

“My job is really strange, I’m given feedback on this theme park thing, I’m working on the TV show, and I’m working on another game, so I’m just kind of jumping around on different projects,” Druckmann said.

Before the onset of the strikes, HBO management said The Last of Us Season 2 would arrive in 2025. The Hollywood strikes will almost certainly delay the start of production on Season 2, and that could mean the premiere date might move, too.

Season 2 will cover some of the events of The Last of Us: Part II, and the expected Season 3 will go further.

Regarding the strikes, Mazin previously said he was confident that labor would prevail. “This will end, and when it ends, it will end to the satisfaction of the Writers Guild. I am absolutely convinced of that. We have no other choice,” he said.

This is the first time since 1960 that unions representing writers and actors have been on strike at the same time. The SAG-AFTRA strike began during the London premiere of Oppenheimer, and actors walked out of a screening when the strike was called. The WGA strike began earlier, starting in May.

Writers and actors are seeking, among other things, better pay, viewership-based streaming residuals, and protections against artificial intelligence.
