The anthology is a little dated at this point, having been released in 2010. However, it offers up some interesting background on Master Chief, the Spartans, and much more. The shorts were animated in a combination of anime and CGI styles by six Japanese production houses, including the like of Toei Animation to Studio 4°C. From the series description:

This sweeping science-fiction saga delves into the rich Halo universe with seven exciting stories (told in eight parts) including tales of Master Chief's mysterious origins, the Spartans' advanced combat capabilities and the tense rivalry between Spartans and Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODSTs).

Whether you're relatively new to the Halo universe, or simply want to sink your teeth into some short standalone stories, you can check out Halo: Legends on Netflix now.

  • I actually liked a good portion of these.
  • It's 2017, time to remake the cartoon into a proper 3D animated series....just like their cut scenes in Halo MCC.
  • More like it's 'back' on Netflix. This was definitely on Netflix a few years ago. Must've dropped off the catalog but is now back on. Well worth a watch, for those who want to dabble in the expanded Halo universe. The live-action Forward Unto Dawn is also quite good.
  • I loved forward unto dawn
  • I loved forward unto dawn
  • Already own the Blu-Ray.  Love this series. 
  • "Netflix subscription" Never in a million years after their political garbage.
  • What was that?
  • For anyone who's into Scifi, the entire catalog of Halo Story stuff is a good shout. This series was done really well. Loved it.
  • "The Package" is a fantastic segment. Show it to any kid Star Wars fan and they'll be hooked on Halo lore.
    My only criticism is they made Doctor Halsey too young.
  • OMG. Dr. Halsey was soooooo gorgeous!  Dream girl!!!
