View Full Version : Screens from movie Final Fantasy: Advent Children

Sorry if these have been posted before.

Looks pretty damned nice. But then again so did "Spirits Within". Sheesh that movie was boring as hell.
I'm not a huge Final Fantasy fan, but I think its based on FF7?

It's based on FFVII and I think it's absolutely not comparable with TSW. TSW was not really Final Fantasy... it had nothing to do with the series.

The fur on Red XIII looks a little strange - are there some more pictures of him? Seems that the movie could be something really cool!

08 August 2004, 03:24 PM
Yes, TSW really wasnt a FF movie.

I dont have any more screens, I got them from another forum.

is this a full length in the theatre movie? It looks cool but not full length feature cool. Looks like it belongs in a video game.

Yeah it's a direct sequel to FFVII (they are making more of FFVII related games right now). And yeah, Red XIII looks a bit weird, but furry animals rarely look great anyway. Maybe he'll look better in motion. And no it is not really for theaters, it's only 1 hour long or so. But it is possible that it will recieve a limited release in some theaters.

That looks good.

The fur look bad because it's really 'straight' on his back.

i agree direct sequel to FFVII but anyway very nice work...

08 August 2004, 05:03 PM
I thought it was suppose to be direct to dvd.

08 August 2004, 05:07 PM
seems like a videogame shot...mmmm

08 August 2004, 05:38 PM
Its a straight to DVD movie, but its gonna come out on the psp format first if I remember correctly.

I cant wait for this movie to come out.

Don't you just hate it when your date falls asleep on you.

But seriously looks very well done but yes very video game like.

08 August 2004, 05:47 PM
I think that the reason Red's fur looks so odd is because he's running towards the camera and the blur effect is making everything look like it points straight out...

Spanks, I was just about to say the same thing. and everything probably looks way better in motion in this flick. I remember seeing a teaser a while back and being thoroughly impressed.

I'm actually playing the game now, I went back to play it before they actually started working on this movie, the game was great and I had decided to go back and play it because of all the character they put into it, it was funny as hell, I guess they figured the that it had to be one of there most top popular seller and to go and make (some additional CG scenes for it and call it a movie) it looks great, this was a very long video game if anybody remembers playing it, and I'm playing it without a strategy guide, I barely remember anything, well will see how this turns out

i really like to play ff7 again before advant children are hit. Let me look for the cds tonighit.

Maybe cgnetworks should do an article on this so it doesn't have to be explained in 30 threads as to what it is, what it's about and when it's going to get here! :D

Check out ( for detailed information, or check ot the official site at

The trailer when I first saw it just about brought tears to my eyes. Talk about inpiration. I really can't wait for the movie which is going to be released on dvd in the Spring of 05. The animation is wonderful and I was and still am a great fan of FFVII. 7 is still the best one due to the great story that all the others up to now still don't come close to touching. I'm just awed by this massive project under took by Squre Unix. Bravo, Bravo:applause:

For those who are still confused about the story and setting. The story begins post FFVII after the destruction of Midgar and a couple years of a depression in the world. watch the latest trailer

the still shots look great but really don't do advent children justice. it looks so nice in motion.
i'm definitely looking forward to this, been a fan since the beginning of ff.

something i found kind of interesting concerning the spirits within and the most recent games (ffx), is that i have screenshots in cgworld magazine of the making of ffx and ff:tsw and square was still using maya 2.5, and 3.0 in a few shots. appears that they have not upgraded in many years but still continue to create some of the best cg there is

Screens don`t look realistic because authors don`t set it as an object. Nomura (main man in FF) said it in interview on I think that animation in "Advent Children" is much better than in "Spirits within". I am wait for it.
