Following the ultimate success of Super Mario Bros. The Movie, Chris Pratt seems an obvious fan choice. Not to forget, Tom Holland has already been a part of a Naughty Dog project with Uncharted. But both the actors coming together for a project is huge. The duo’s chemistry is unmatchable which would be an ideal casting choice for the characters of Jak and Daxter. The iconic pair of characters foundationally thrives on chemistry, hence fans are thrilled to know the makers’ alleged pick. 

The developers have already been a part of a project like The Last of Us TV Series that has been ruling the content market since its release. Thus, the expectations from Naughty Dog are all-time high. While there has been an unfortunate delay in the next season of The Last of Us, fans wouldn’t want to wait for the star-studded Jak and Daxter live-action adventure. Although we’ll still have to wait for an official confirmation from the makers.
