The upcoming CG-animated film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is going to be shown in select theaters across the U.S., starting on August 19. The movie stars the voices of Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and Game of Throne’s actors Sean Bean and Lena Headey. The news comes via IGN, along with a new behind-the-scenes video featuring the movie’s actors. You can watch the video down below.
Kingsglaive takes place before Final Fantasy XV, and here’s a quick rundown of the film, straight from Square Enix:
“The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers 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 to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s 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.”
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV will also be releasing on Blu-ray and Digital sometime this fall. Are you excited to see Kingsglaive in theaters, or will you wait until the Blu-ray release? Let us know in the comments.
