To Amazon

Amazon seems to have positioned itself well in the fantasy area. Next up is this Science-Fiction genre conquered where the streaming service was previously represented by The Expanse. As from a report by Deadline shows, Amazon is in final negotiations for the rights to Mass Effect.

Pure science fiction bombast: Amazon Prime is planning a film adaptation of the Mass Effect series

Mass Effect is one of the most successful video game franchises. In 2007 the developer studio BioWare and the publisher Electronic Arts published the first part, which was expanded into the so-called Reaper trilogy in 2010 and 2012. A fourth part followed in 2017 with Mass Effect: Andromeda. There are also various spin-offs.

Mass Effect

The Mass Effect deal is not yet dry. If we look at the streaming landscape, however, it makes a lot of sense that Amazon is doing everything possible to implement to make a film adaptation. After all, it is a popular brand whose franchise potential is far from being exhausted.

  • What is Mass Effect about? At the center of the story is the character Commander Shepard, whose gender you can choose yourself. Shepard leads the Normandy crew in the fight against the machine-like Reaper.

With Mass Effect, Amazon Prime could create its largest science fiction project to date

In addition to the video games, the Mass Effect series has so far been mainly through novels and comics expanded. The only cinematic excursion marked the 2012 anime Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, which is set during the events of Mass Effect 2. Live-action adaptations have always failed so far.

In the early 2010s, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures were working on a Mass Effect movie. In the end, however, the project came about never beyond the planning phasewhich is due, among other things, to the size of the submission. With a series implementation, Amazon offers significantly more options.

Where Apple TV + inspires with the lavishly produced science fiction series Foundation and Paramount + brings the hotly anticipated video game adaptation Halo into position, Amazon could score points in the future with a Mass Effect series. Even more: the starting material provides material for a whole Film and series universe on amazon.
