Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV — 'E3' Trailer


added: Tue, Jun 14th '16

Following its debut at E3, Sony has released the official trailer for "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV," a CG-animated sci-fi fantasy movie featuring the voices of Emmy-winning "Breaking Bad" star Aaron Paul and "Game of Thrones" actors Sean Bean and Lena Headey.

Set in a quasi-medieval, futuristic hybrid world where a kingdom protected by a sacred crystal goes to battle with an empire of powerful machines, the film was entirely created in the computer with the help of motion-captured performances done by stunt actors. Paul, Bean, and Headey were then hired to provide the voices for the main characters.

Produced by Japanese game developer 'Square Enix,' the animated feature serves as a companion to the upcoming release of the latest Final Fantasy video game (which will be hitting stores at the end of September).

It was just announced that "Kingsglaive" will get a limited U.S. theatrical release on August 19th, before arriving on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 4. (It will be available as part of a deluxe combo package with the video game on Sept 30.)

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the world's last remaining Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis (voiced by Sean Bean) of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, they fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum -- to marry his son, Prince Noctis (voiced by Aaron Paul) to Princess Lunafreya (voiced by Lena Headey) of Tenebrae, captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to Niflheim rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
