Warner Bros. Japan has released a new trailer that showcases scenes from both parts of Full Metal Alchemist: The Final Chapter, the upcoming sequels to the 2017 live-action FMA movie.
The two upcoming live-action sequels in the Full Metal Alchemist franchise are titled Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Kanketsu-hen – Fukushūsha Scar (Full Metal Alchemist: Final Chapter – The Avenger Scar) and Hagane no Renkinjutsushi: Kanketsu-hen – Saigo no Rensei (Full Metal Alchemist: Final Chapter – The Last Transmutation).
The Vengeance of Scar is scheduled to premiere in Japan on May 20, while the final part of the trilogy, The Last Transmutation, will debut on June 24. An international release for the new sequels has not yet been announced, but the original live-action adaptation was previously released internationally through Netflix.
The trailer teases the arrival of Father’s Promised Day and shows new clips from the many battles that lead up to that climactic event, including Edward and Alphonse’s first fight with the vengeful serial killer, Scar. The trailer also shows off several homunculi and the Alchemist Roy Mustang in action.
The films will feature a returning cast from the first live-action movie.
The films star Ryōsuke Yamada (Hey! Say! JUMP member and live-action Assassination Classroom‘s Nagisa) as Edward Elric, Atomu Mizuishi (Garo – Makai no Hana, Prince of Tennis 2nd season musicals) as Alphonse Elric (voice and motion capture), Tsubasa Honda (live-action Blue Spring Ride‘s Futaba) as Winry Rockbell, and Dean Fujioka (live-action Happy Marriage!?) as Roy Mustang.
The films commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hiromu Arakawa‘s original Full Metal Alchemist manga. Fumihiko Sori (live-action Ping Pong) is returning to direct the film.
The first live-action film opened the Tokyo International Film Festival in October 2017 for its world premiere, before opening in Japan during December 2017. Full Metal Alchemist was created by Hiromi Arakawa in 2001 and was one of the most popular manga series of the early ‘2000s. The critically acclaimed series received two anime adaptations.
