Finally, after much teasing and waiting, we finally get to see the very first video of the upcoming live-action Full Metal Alchemist film, which teases Ryousuke Yamada in costume as Edward Elric and lots and lots of action.

The video also teases what Edward’s brother, Alphonse Elric, might look like in the film. However, fans are still wondering whether a certain child-and-dog duo will be making it to the movie…

Slated to premiere sometime in Winter 2017, the film adaptation of Full Metal Alchemist will star

  • Ryosuke Yamada as Edward Elric
  • Tsubasa Honda as Winry Rockbell
  • Dean Fujioka as Roy Mustang
  • Ryuuta Satou as Captain Maes Hughes
  • Yo Oizumi as Major Shou Tucker
  • Yasuko Matsuyuki as Lust
  • Kanata Hongou as Envy
  • Shinji Uchiyama as Gluttony
  • Misako Renbutsu as Riza Hawkeye
  • Natsuki Harada as Gracia Hughes
  • Jun Kunimura as Doctor Marco
  • Fumiyo Kohinata as General Hakuro
  • Natsuna as Maria Ross
  • Kenjiro Ishimaru as Father Cornello

In an earlier interview, Director Fumihiko Sori revealed that unlike live-action film adaptations of popular manga titles like Rurouni Kenshin, Attack on Titan, and Chihayafuru, the story of the Elric brothers will be told in only one stand-alone movie, and remember, this movie promises to stay loyal to the source, so one might wonder how they will fit all of that story material in one feature-length film. Details on how Alphonse Elric will look like have not yet been revealed, however.
