The website posted a clear photo of the Alphonse Elric, the younger Elric brother in the series, has been made with CG for the film, but the voice cast has yet to be revealed at this time. (Rie Kugimiya was the previous voice for Alphonse in the anime series, she’s also the voice of Kagura from Gintama, Happy from Fairy Tail, and Aisaka Taiga from Toradora!)
It’s also worth noting that the CG to create Alphonse is using some brand new techniques never before used in Japanese film history!
Tickets will be selling at a “First Day” discount price of 1,100 yen on the first of the month compared to the normal ticket price of 1,800 ($16 USD) yen. The official Twitter of the film stated that they decided on this day to give as many fans of the anime/manga a chance to watch it as possible.
The trailer was released back in November 2016 and you can watch it below!
