The official site for Attack on Titan has updated with a great new key visual that brings together a whole lot of the cast of characters for the film as well as presenting the first clean look at the female Titan that will be central to it. We did get a look at her previously in the promotional trailer for the film, but this is the kind of poster that you want to have up on your wall. The second film is scheduled for June 27th, 2015 and a new TV series is due out in 2016. The first film is titled Attack on Titan Part I: Crimson Bow and Arrow while the second one is Attack on Titan Part II: Wings of Freedom. Astute fans will note that these are the names of the opening songs of the series.
FUNimation has picked up the TV series for US distribution while Manga Entertainment UK has the UK rights and Madman Entertainment has the Australian rights.
Property concept: Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.
Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.
