Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV movie announced By Wazi the pa on March 30, 2016 at 10:50 PM

Announced from the Uncovered Final Fantasy XV event, Square Enix has announced a CG movie for the highly anticipated RPG title.

The movie showcases King Regis’ time as King of Lucis and will feature characters both familiar and never before seen in Final Fantasy XV. Some characters had to be redesigned to fit into the movie’s vision.


The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.

King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.

Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting anultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.

As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.

Teaser trailer

Final Fantasy XV is due out in 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


  • –ZERO–


  • This is good, secondary coming Advent Children. But again, the game is the most important.

  • Jesus Christ

    WOW. The graphics. Bless this. Bless.

  • stevenm281

    I’m speechless, this looks so damn good!

  • It looks incredibly real! I actually thought it was live action at first.

  • Allan

    The event was groundbreaking! Totally exceeded my expectations. I’d never expect a full CGi movie for this.

    The voice casting is pretty impressive… but, as Sean Bean dubs king Regis, we know that he’ll die soon lol

  • Mehmed

    New List:

    FF XV Movie
    FF 7 Movie

  • XVTH

  • •december

  • Mehmed

    this is the level of graphics i wish the ps5 could give us.
    But to say the truth, even 2016 ps4 game ff xv cant exactly give the quality of the 2006 trailer..
    but its very… near.

  • stevenm281

    While I am in awe in front of this upcoming movie, I can’t help but think that Luna is quite different than in the game, she seems older here.

  • alexis

    Lena Headey motion capture. Face shape more resembled her.
    If we’re being honest… I prefer that face. It looks much more lively and unique than the tiny pretty face she usually has.

  • I’m still reeling from all the news we got about the game today. This movie is icing on the cake. Wow!

  • RedSpade

    Advent children was the best in graphics during it’s time…. Now this… SE never ceases to amaze about super CG business

  • Noctis

    me too man….i was like….he is this a live action movie?

  • Noctis

    who is that blonde girl?

  • NoctisNyx

    Three years in the making, wow! What? No, my name is not intentional, haha!

  • Xervath

    I have to admit…I didn’t see this one coming. Good job on them keeping this project a secret for some 3+ years.

  • stevenm281

    Luna… hard to believe huh? She seems 10 years older in this movie and its supposed to be happening at the same time as the game.

  • Noctis

    ehm strange….she seems really different, so we will see also Noctis and the others in the movie?

  • stevenm281

    Nope, the movie occurs in Lucis while Noctis and co. are on their roadtrip.

    The only characters that will overlap are Regis, Luna, and Ardyn.

    The main character of this movie is called Nyx.

  • Noctis

    they all seem so real….what the hell!!! Square enix is improving and improving!!

  • Shaan


  • Jordan

    This was an exciting event to watch on stream with the 15 announcements:) My only question is why does Luna look different on the movie than the Luna on the video game? I’m confused…Are these real people or am I just going crazy.

  • TRUndercover

    Just when I thought I was done with the actual game’s trailers; then THIS pops up… This is what we certainly call “Pushing Boundaries!”

  • stevenm281

    It’s been confirmed during a Press Conference that Regis, Ardyn and Luna voice actors wont be the same than in the game.

  • Is it just me or does Luna not look like herself.

  • stevenm281

    You can say that again

  • alexis

    That’s not why they redesigned Regis, lol. They redesigned him for a plot reason, that reason being that the magic he uses to create a giant barrier over his city wears out his body and makes him age quickly.

  • Jesus Christ

    Luna looks realistic in the CG in the game. This is a whole another redesign to look, I’m sorry to say, almost less beautiful than in game. In game, she has more baby like face even at her older age. In the movie, her face is more defined/sculpted. This one is like super real real real person with very porcelain skin (remember that one time first redesign of Stella we thought was lightly tanned???). Not a surprise because that’s Asian beauty standard right there. In sunlight her skin lucent color pratically matches her white dress. LOL

    1997: FFVII (PS1) releases and continues on with Compilation of FFVII including anime, movie, etc.
    2017[?]: 20th anniversary of FFVII and MAYBE release of FFVII Remake (PS4)
    2016: FFXV (PS4) releases and expands with Final Fantasy XV Universe including anime, movie, etc.
    Conclusion: FFXV Remake confirmed for 2036 with VR technology on PS7.

  • More interesting than the game itself

  • stevenm281

    The plot reason for the FF15 universe is this yes, but those changes were made in the movie first, then they redesigned the in-game models to fit the movie’s vision, its even stated in this article…

  • eijin_kiver

    Bit curious. Who’s the girl with motorcycle helmet?

  • Ader Bez Fontana

    Except it is not.

  • 4FFAN

    I just wanna say, to all of us that we’re complaining about the story changes from Versus XIII, you can see a lot of it went into that movie. There are a lot of scenes that are recreations of scenes from the Versus XIII/Early XV days.

  • 4FFAN

    I want to know too! I swear I’ve seen her face before! 😮 I wonder who the motion capture actress is?

  • arcnate

    if you see the movie poster i think its safe to say she is one of the glaives like Nyx
