Halo Legends is an anime-styled series of seven short films[2] currently in production by Microsoft's internal Halo entertainment team, 343 Industries. It is under five production houses, namely Bones, Casio Entertainment, Production I.G., Studio4°C, and Toei Animation.[2]

Background

"It's a wildly varied genre, but anime creators do things with weapons and vehicles and technology nobody else does and that marries very well with Halo. It's amazing to see some of the new stuff they're introducing and how neatly it maps to the visual aesthetics in the Halo universe"
Frank O'Connor, Creative Director of 343 Industries.

Warner Bros is in charge of the distribution of Legends. All of the seven stories have been created and in some cases, entirely written by Frank O'Connor.[3] Some stories have been detailed to an extent, and some characters from the novels have been stated to make an appearance in Legends.[3] Each film will be previewed via Halo Waypoint on Xbox Live, and are scheduled to be distributed by Warner Bros. It is also confirmed that on every other Saturday a new episode will be available for free on Halo Waypoint, and the other Saturdays will be a "making of" for the previous episode. Halo: Legends will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 16, 2010.[4][1]
