The Naughty Dog team then decided not to continue on this path, according to Neil Druckmann in one of the many interviews related to the TV series.
Druckmann has already confirmed that Anna, Ellie's mother, will play her during the first season of the TV series of The Last of Us. She will be played by Ashley Johnson, the actress who modeled for Ellie in the video game series.
Druckmann said the first sentence was meant to be a animated short, but it ultimately fell short. We almost had decided to make it into a DLC, but this also fell short.
Ashley Johnson's selection for Anna's role has an enormous significance because it is also a great video game that will be cherished by fans of this game since it is the basis on which the original Ellie was based. For the other things, we reported this morning that the second episode of the TV series has received more viewing than the first, further confirming its success.
