Japan has already experienced the CG-animated film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, and North America will get their first shot on August 19th with a limited theatrical run.
A home video release will follow shortly thereafter starting with Digital HD on August 30th with the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Blu-ray and DVD arriving more than a month later on October 4th courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV features the voice talent of Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings franchise). The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:
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.
Four bonus features will be included on both the Blu-ray and DVD editions of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV:
- “A Way with Words: Epic and Intimate Vocals”
- “Fit for The KINGSGLAIVE: Building the World”
