The official website for the live-action Fulmetal Alchemist has finally updated, and it now reveals a brand new key visual. This new visual features the the Elric brothers, Edward as well as his massive armor of a brother, Alphonse. This new visual gives us a better look at Alphonse, who will be a completely CG character for the film.
And speaking of the younger Elric, Alphonse also got his own visual. This new image is actually an Alphonse-only version of the image above. Yeah, Edward’s just so short that they can easily crop him out and make Alphonse look badass.
And with Fullmetal Alchemist’s anniversary coming up, the film’s cast will also be appearing at an event on 12th July. Meanwhile, Gallery AaMo in Tokyo Dome City and Osaka’s Nankou ATC Museum will hold their own FMA anniversary gallery in autumn. The film stars Ryosuke Yamada as the one and only Fullmetal Alchemist himself, Edward Elric
The film will premiere on 1st December, and will also star:
- Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell
- Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang
- Ryuuta Satou as Captain Maes Hughes
- Yo Oizumi as Major Shou Tucker
- Yasuko Matsuyuki as Lust
- Kanata Hongou as Envy
- Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony
- Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye
- Natsuki Harada as Gracia Hughes
- Jun Kunimura as Doctor Marco
- Fumiyo Kohinata as General Hakuro
- Natsuna as Maria Ross
- Kenjiro Ishimaru as Father Cornello
In an earlier interview, Director Fumihiko Sori revealed that unlike live-action film adaptations of popular manga titles like Rurouni Kenshin, Attack on Titan, and Chihayafuru, they will be telling the story of the Elric brothers in only one stand-alone film. This movie also promises to stay loyal to the source, so one might wonder how they will fit all of that story material in one feature-length film.
