It’s time for another reminder that Ed and Al are preparing for an adventure in the live-action world.
Earlier today, the official Fullmetal Alchemist live-action movie’s website updated with a new poster visual. The image shows off the entire main cast from the feature, posing against a cloudy grey sky.
Three other posters were unveiled in July, which you can check out below:
The live-action Fullmetal Alchemist film hits Japanese theaters on December 1. Fans who attend the screening will receive a “special-edition comic” by original author Hiromu Arakawa. The comic will be the first new Fullmetal Alchemist material that she’s written in seven years.
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
