It’s time to get another glimpse into the magical world of Amestris.
Earlier today, the official Fullmetal Alchemist live-action film’s website updated with a new visual. The image features Edward and Alphonse looking down over Central City.
The film’s official Twitter account updated with a second visual, which features Alphonse and a December 1 première confirmation.
A fan event for the Fullmetal Alchemist film will be held on July 12. Both the anime and live-action film’s casts will appear at the event. This fall, an art exhibition for the series will be held at the Tokyo Dome City Gallery AaMo and Osaka’s Nanko ATC Museum.
The news comes hot on the heels of the new promo video, which hit the web on Friday.
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
