Last night Square Enix held an event to promote and reveal big announcements for their upcoming Final Fantasy XV video game. While some of the trailers and the big launch date was already leaked out earlier that day, gamers were kept in the dark about an upcoming CG animated film known as Kingsglaive. Today, we’re finding out that the incredible actor talent behind the film will not reprise their roles for the upcoming video game.
As mentioned, last night during Square Enix’s Final Fantasy Uncovered event, a feature-length CG animated film called Kingsglaive was announced. The film would follow King Regis and his elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Set during the period of the Final Fantasy XV video game, the film will show more of King Regis and the kingdom of Lucis while the game follows Noctis and his friends.
The film announcement alone wasn’t the only thing that intrigued us about Kingsglaive. Attached to the film are some incredible talent which includes Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones), Lena Headey (300, Game of Thrones), and Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad). Unfortunately, this cast will not be reprising their roles for the video game.
