Final Fantasy XV Film Heads To Theaters

Square Enix is gearing up for the big release of Final Fantasy XV with its prequel film, Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. Kingsglaive will act as both a prequel and parallel to Final Fantasy XV. The events of the film will set the stage for the game's story, and we'll get to see a few of FFXV's events from a different perspective. Kingsglaive looks gorgeous, and best of all it'll be heading to the silver screen. According to IGN, Kingsglaive will have a theatrical run this summer prior to its home video release this fall.

For those wanting to know what all the hubbub is about, here's the synopsis for this computer-animated feature:

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.

Yes, you read that correctly: Sean Bean, Aaron Paul, and Lena Headey—that's Ned Stark, Jesse Pinkman, and Queen Cersei to nerds like us. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV will bow in select movie theaters on August 19, 2016 (check your local listings and the official Kingsglaive site for more details). Home video should follow shortly thereafter, and Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30.

We're not sure what'll happen in Final Fantasy XV, but it'll probably end with Sean Bean dying.
