2 min read

Content is king and if you have an established property you’re looking at ways to make more money on it and hope that the fans are still there – and that you can get new ones. Warner Bros. Japan is doing just that as two live-action films have been announced for Full Metal Alchemist. The first film is set for a May 20th, 2022 debut with Final Chapter – The Avenger Scar while the second film is set for a June 24th, 2022 debut with Final Chapter – The Last Transmutation.

The trailer below gives us a taste of what’s to come as the first film delves into Ed’s fight with Scar while the second handles the final battle. It’s interesting enough narrated by Romi Park, who played Ed in the anime.

The cast includes Atom Mizuishi as Alphonse Elric, Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang, Ryōsuke Yamada as Edward Elric, Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell, Chiaki Kuriyama as Olivier Mira Armstrong, Haruhi Ryо̄ga as Izumi Curtis, Hiroshi Tachi as King Bradley, Jun Fubuki as Pinako Rockbell, Kanata Hongō as Envy, Kaoru Okunuki as Sarah Rockbell, Keisuke Watanabe as Ling Yao, Kōji Yamamoto as Alex Louis Armstrong, Kokoro Terada as Selim Bradley, Mackenyu Arata as Scar, Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye, Naohito Fujiki as Yuriy Rockbell, Ron Monroe as May Chang, Ryuta Sato as Maes Hughes, Seiyō Uchino as Van Hohenheim, Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony, Yuina Kuroshima as Lan Fan, Yuki Yamada as Solf J.

Property concept: In this world there exist alchemists, people who study and perform the art of alchemical transmutation—to manipulate objects and transform one object into another. They are bounded by the basic law of alchemy: in order to gain something you have to sacrifice something of the same value. The main character is the famous alchemist Edward Elric—also known as the Fullmetal Alchemist—who almost lost his little brother, Alphonse, in an alchemical accident. Edward managed to attach his brother’s soul to a large suit of armor. While he did manage to save his brother’s life, he paid the terrible price of his limbs. To get back what they’ve lost, the brothers embark on a journey to find the Philosopher’s Stone that is said to amplify the powers of an alchemist enormously; however, on the way, they start uncovering a conspiracy that could endanger the entire nation, and they realize the misfortunes brought upon by the Philosopher’s Stone.
