We were super-stoked when we heard news of the popular manga and anime being transposed into a live action film. We were bubbling with uncontrollable joy at the sight of the official poster. Now we lay eyes on the moving image that surely will bring the Titans to life.
Director Shinji Higuchi confirmed in July that the project will span two films, with both installments to premiere this summer. Attack On Titan‘s will be based on the world and characters of the manga created by Hajime Isayama, while incorporating 7 new characters to the film version. See character images already released by the Attack On Titan team:
Yuusuke Watanabe (Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer, 20th Century Boys, Gatchaman) is writing the script. Film critic Tomohiro Machiyama, who is also friends with Isayama, is working on the scripts together with Isayama and Watanabe.
