Square Enix to release CG animated film “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV”
A fully CG animated movie with the voices of Aaron Paul, Sean Bean and Lena Headey is underway at Sony Pictures. The new film will be based on the highly-anticipated new Final Fantasy game, which is expected to launch later this year.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Square Enix unveiled the first look at “Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV” earlier tonight. The fully CG animated movie slated to premiere this fall.
The film will be released worldwide as a cross-media collaboration with FINAL FANTASY XV, the upcoming sequel to the extremely successful gaming franchise.
KINGSGLAIVE features an all-star cast, including Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones) as King Regis, Lena Headey (300, Game of Thrones) as Princess Luna and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Kingsglaive soldier Nyx.
In the film, thee magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.
King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.
Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting anultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.
As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.
