New Final Fantasy Movie coming in July

kingsglaive_final_fantasy_xv_1A new Final Fantasy movie? YES! Kingsglaive is an upcoming movie set within the world of Final Fantasy. It will be computer animated and will be directed by the same man who co-directed the previous Final Fantasy movie: Advent Children, Takeshi Nozue.

The English version of the game will feature voice actors Sean Bean, Lena Heady and Aaron Paul. Sadly the movie will be not released in cinemas in Ireland, Britain or anywhere else apart from Japan. The Japanese version will be released in cinemas on July 9 2016, and the English one will be released for download and stream at some point before the brand new Final Fantasy XV game is due to hit stores. Good news is that if you were planning on purchasing the Deluxe Edition or Ultimate Collectors Edition of the game in September, you will get the movie as a bonus on Blu-Ray too.

The story will run with that of Final Fantasy XV and will tell the events occurring around Noctis’s father King Regis and childhood friend Luna after Noctis escapes on a road trip with his friends.

“The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army. Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting an ultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim. As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.”
