The trailer was revealed on the Warner Bros. Japan Twitter as well as the new Official Fullmetal Alchemist Twitter account. It’s more of a teaser, but a trailer nonetheless. In the short preview we do get to see Edward Elric briefly in action. Edward is played by Ryosuke Yamada, a member of Hey! Say! JUMP, a popular Japanese boy band. We also get a quick, but satisfying, glimpse of Ed’s little brother, Alfonse Elric, in his metal suit of armor. Check out the trailer below:
For those of you that aren’t fluent in Japanese, Anime News Network has provided the full translation of the lines in the trailer:
Text: The time has come.
Text: Original work: Hiromu Arakawa
Text: Director: Fumihiko Sori (Ping Pong)
Text: Two brothers’ great journey.
Text: The legend…
Text: Finally begins.
Title Logo: Fullmetal Alchemist
Edward: I promise I’ll get our bodies back.
Text: 2017, winter.
Even though the trailer is short, we can tell that the style depicted in the film stays pretty true to the style in Hiromu Arakawa’s manga, as well as the popular anime series. I’m sure us fanboys and girls can agree that we all have elevated heart rates and loud squeals of excitement have uncontrollably pierced the ears of anyone in a five block radius.
As well as the official Twitter account for the movie, an official website has also gone live. As stated, the movie isn’t due out until winter of next year, but the trailer has given us a hopeful look at what’s to come.
