The hype train is ready to depart for the Ed and Al.

The film’s crew also released a still from the film, which you can check out below:

Fullmetal Alchemist will hit Japanese theaters in December 2017.

The film aims to tell the entire Fullmetal Alchemist saga in one feature.

Fumihiko Sori (Ping Pong) was tapped to direct the feature. He commented on the adaptation process, stating that he wants “to create a style which follows the original manga as much as possible. The cast is fully Japanese, but the cultural background is European. That said, it’s a style that doesn’t espouse a specific race or country.” He continued on this train of thought, stating that “There will never be a scene in which a character states something that will define them as Japanese.”

The confirmed cast includes:

  • Edward Elric: Ryosuke Yamada
  • Winry Rockbell: Tsubasa Honda
  • Roy Mustang: Dean Fujioka
  • General Hakuro: Fumiyo Kohinata
  • Maes Hughes: Ryuta Sato
  • Riza Hawkeye: Misako Renbutsu
  • Maria Ross: Natsuna
  • Gracia Hughes: Natsuki Harada
  • Shou Tucker: Yo Oizumi
  • Doctor Marco: Jun Kunimura
  • Lust: Yasuko Matsuyuki
  • Envy: Kanata Hongou
  • Gluttony: Shinji Uchiyama
  • Father Cornello: Kenjiro Ishimaru

A trailer and a visual matching the actors to their roles were released to promote the film. You can check these out below:
