Uncharted: Every Game Character In The Movie & How They Compare

The Uncharted movie features a number of beloved characters from the popular video game franchise, though they’ve all been changed in one way or another during the transition to the big screen. The film, which has been in development since 2008, stars Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Sophia Taylor Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas. Uncharted is scheduled to release in theaters on February 18, 2022.

When pulling from a huge franchise like the Uncharted video games, it can be tough to decide which characters to include and which to keep out. The upcoming film is set prior to the events of the first Uncharted game, which naturally excludes some of the series’ most prominent characters. Elena Fisher, for instance, will not appear in the Uncharted movie, and Nathan Drake’s brother Sam – though mentioned by name in the first trailer – hasn’t been confirmed for an actual appearance.

Still, Sony’s Uncharted movie has a few names fans of the video games will instantly recognize. Some of their appearances and characteristics seem to have been translated pretty directly, while other aspects of their personas have been notably changed. Here are all the Uncharted video game characters confirmed to be appearing in the movie, and how they’re different from their video game counterparts.

Nathan Drake

Leading the way in Uncharted is Tom Holland’s Nathan Drake. Because the film is set prior to the events of the first video game, Nate’s a bit younger than fans may be used to. He looks a bit older he does in the flashback sequences of Uncharted 3, placing him somewhere in his late teens or early twenties this time around. Along with that change in age comes a change in personality, with Holland’s Nathan Drake seeming a bit softer and more naïve than the devilish rogue of the video games. That makes some sense given that he’s so much younger in the film, but it’s still not a change everyone will be happy with. On the bright side, the Uncharted movie seems to have gotten Nate’s video game outfit down perfectly.

Victor "Sully" Sullivan

Standing alongside Holland’s Nathan Drake in Uncharted is Mark Wahlberg’s Victor “Sully” Sullivan – Nate’s close friend and mentor from the games. Like Drake, Sully has been aged down substantially for the new movie, even to the point of losing his iconic moustache. Out of all the returning Uncharted characters, Sully seems the most altered in his personality, with very little of the gruff, cigar-chomping attitude that made him so popular in the games. Hopefully, the final version of the Uncharted movie will feature more traditional Sully moments than the trailer footage that’s been released so far.

Chloe Frazer

The final Uncharted video game character confirmed for the Tom Holland movie is Chloe Frazer, played by Sophia Taylor Ali. Out of the three, Chloe seems to be the most similar to her video game counterpart, though that may simply be because the trailer shows the least of her. Like Sully and Drake, Chloe is much younger in Holland's Uncharted prequel movie than she is in her first appearance in Uncharted 2, but she still has the same snarky persona, and the trailer even hints that she may have a double-cross or two up her sleeve. That’s a trademark of Chloe’s in the Uncharted video games, and it would be fun to see it manifest in the new movie as well.
