Serving as a prequel to the series, the film will feature a young Nathan Drake in his first major adventure. The pics give audiences and fans a glimpse at what to expect from the upcoming movie.

The second image is a behind-the-scenes pic of Holland meeting with voice actor Nolan North, who portrayed Drake in the game series. Over on North’s official Twitter account, he has given his blessings to Holland, saying that he is “crushing it” in the role of Drake. North isn’t the only one on giving thumbs up to the upcoming Uncharted movie. Amy Henning, the director and creator of the Uncharted series, tweeting the phrase, “Sic Parvis Magna.” The quote will be familiar to Uncharted fans, as it was the motto of Sir Francis Drake, who Nathan Drake claimed to be an ancestor of.
