Fullmetal Alchemist Trailer Recaps the Series Ahead of Its Live-Action Finale

Warner Bros. releases a new video recapping the events of The Avenger Scar ahead of the release of Edward and Alphonse’s final live-action adventure.

Fullmetal Alchemist recaps the story so far in a new promo video.

Warner Bros. Japan released a new five minute video that recaps the events of The Avenger Scar, which was released earlier this year. The clips were released ahead of the premiere of the final movie in the franchise’s live-action movie trilogy, The Last Transmutation, which opens in Japan on June 24. The spoiler-filled video shows Edward and Alphonse Elric’s first battle with the serial killer Scar, a brief encounter with the homonculus Gluttony and Envy’s transformation into a reptile-like, eight-armed monster. The clip ends with a preview of a few shots from the final movie’s climax.

A release for both The Avenger Scar and The Last Transmutation outside of Japan have yet to be announced. The first film in the series was released in 2017, and was distributed internationally as a Netflix streaming exclusive.

Ping Pong director Fumihiko Sori directed all three of the live-action Fullmetal Alchemist movies. The trilogy stars Ryosuke Yamada and Atomu Mizuishi as the series’ main characters, Edward and Alphonse Elric. Actor and musician Dean Fujioka, who anime fans may remember as the artist behind Yuri!! on Ice‘s theme song, portrays the fan-favorite Flame Alchemist, Roy Mustang, in live-action. Tsubasa Honda (Weathering With You) plays the role of Ed and Al’s childhood friend, Winry Rockbell. The movies also feature Kill Bill‘s Chiaki Kuriyama, who plays the role of Olivier Mira Armstrong, and Mackenyu, a rising star in Japan who potrays the serial killer Scar. Mackenyu has starred in a number of live-action anime adaptations, including Chihayafuru and Rurouni Kenshin, and will notably also appear in Netflix’s live-action One Piece reboot, where he will play the role of the Straw Hat Pirates’ swordsman, Roronoa Zoro.

Fullmetal Alchemist was created by Hiromu Arakawa and was one of the most popular and acclaimed manga series of the early 2000s. In addition to the new live-action movies, the manga was adapted into animation twice; the first show premiered in 2003 and diverges wildly from the source material, while 2009’s Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood was created to be a more faithful adaptation of Arakawa’s original work. Fans generally regard the second of the shows as the superior work.

Both shows are now streaming on Hulu and Crunchyroll, while Arakawa’s manga is available in English from VIZ Media and Yen Press.
