Square Enix have announced a new feature-length Final Fantasy XV CG movie titled Kingsglaive. They also made some impressive cast announcements with Lena Headey, Sean Bean of Game of Thrones and Aaron Paul of Breaking Bad all signing up.
Headey will take on the role of Princess Luna, while Sean Bean will play King Regis and Aaron Paul will voice the soldier Nyx. Square Enix released the following synopsis for the film:
“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 an ultimatum—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.”

Sony will release Kingslaive online later this year before the game is released on September 30th.
