So we might never see that big-screen Halo movie that they’ve been teasing us with since Bill Gates was still in diapers, which is a shame, especially since Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 kicked so much ass (he was originally intended to head it up). But if you’ve got the jones for some non-interactive Halo action, let me remind you that Halo Legends is going to drop early next year. Featuring seven short animated films made by ass-kicking Japanese production companies like Bones (Fullmetal Alchemist), Studio 4C (Transformers Animated), and more, this looks to be the rare example of a video game crossover done right. We’re still collecting info about the set, but we have a release date: February 9, 2010. You ready?
