CGI Final Fantasy 15 film Kingsglaive gets a release date and new trailer

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 got a release date and extended trailer at Comic-Con this weekend.

The animated film, which stars Sean Bean, Lena Headey and Aaron Paul, will be released on Blu-ray 4th October. But if you live in the US you’ll be able to see it in select cinemas much earlier, from 19th August. I’ve asked Square Enix about specific UK timings.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 unfolds in parallel to the video game Final Fantasy 15. In the game, main character Noctis leaves his royal home on the ‘eve of a peace deal between his father’s kingdom of Lucis and the dominant empire of Niflheim. But after he sets out things go belly up and sneaky Niflheim invades anyway – so his mission becomes one of retaking his homeland and the magical crystal belonging to it. But in the film that story plays out from his father King Regis’ point of view.
