Live Action Fullmetal Alchemist Movie Teaser And Character Visuals
If you’re an anime fan like myself, you’re probably aware that there will be a Fullmetal Alchemist live action movie coming out this year in Japan. Recently, a new teaser trailer and character visuals were unveiled during a fan event for the upcoming Fullmetal Alchemist live action film held on July 12 in Tokyo.
The story of Fullmetal Alchemist revolves around the Elric Brothers, Edward and Alphonse, who used forbidden human transmutation alchemy to try to bring their mother back to life but failed. As a result for using this method, Edward lost his arm and Alphonse lost his whole body and had his soul attached to a suit of armor. It’s from these events that the brothers set out on a journey to find a way to regain what they lost by looking for the Philosopher’s Stone. The original manga of the same name was released 16 years ago on July 12 by Hiromu Arakawa. The popularity of the manga gave it a chance to be made into an anime in 2003 and then another anime in 2009 which was more based on how the events happened in the manga. Fullmetal Alchemist ended its manga run in September 2010.
In the character visuals we see Yamada Ryosuke dressed in Edward Elric’s famed red cloak and his brother Alphonse in his fantastic CGI form. The character images also unveiled Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell, as well as the Eastern Headquarters’ military characters such as Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang, Ryuta Sato as Captain Maes Hughes and Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye.
The visuals are also out for the “Homunculi”, who make up the antagonistic side force of FMA with Yasuko Matsuyuki as Lust, Kanata Hongo as Envy and Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony.
Fullmetal Alchemist live action will open December 1 in Japan.
