Fantasy Becomes Reality

[ THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED BY JOHN PHILLIPS BENGERO ON NOVEMBER 16th 2000 ]



The movie version of the popular RPG, Final Fantasy, will be in theaters on June 2001.

The next chapter in the Final Fantasy series is not set to be seen on any other video game console. But on the big screen. Yep, Square is teaming up with Columbia Pictures to release a movie based on the Final Fantasy series. But don't expect to see Squall or any other characters from previous FF games.

This is the story so far:
Set on Earth in the year 2065, destruction and confusion surround us. Cities are deserted, the population is decimated, and the precious few humans who remain must find a way to survive. In this world, we face death as we part with our loved ones. We begin to question what "life" and "love" is, and what is the philosophical definition of the "heart." After all in this world, science has analyzed life and death, expressing life as a form of energy. Beyond the riveting battle scenes, Final Fantasy will take you on a journey of personal discovery into both the real and fantasy worlds, drawing you deep into its characterizations and themes: love, friendship, dreams, adventure, life and death.

Alec Baldwin, Ming Na Wen (Chun-Li of Street Fighter), and others have been tapped in to do the movie but don't expect to see them, you'll just hear them. The movie is all computer generated! The characters are all rendered in full 3D glory. You can barely distinguish them from real people.

For Final Fantasy, the digital backlot is not where you would expect it to be, in Hollywood - but rather it is located in tropical Hawaii. Next to the beautiful Pacific Ocean, Square has selected Harbor Court in downtown Honolulu as the home to more than 150 computer graphic artist from all over the world, including Hollywood, Tokyo and Europe. There, surrounded by state-of-the-art computers and software programs, artists are able to transform their vision into reality set on a computer screen. It is in this environment where Square is producing Final Fantasy as a successful and entertaining film with the leading computer graphic technology.

This movie will surely be one of the blockbusters on 2001. With more games being made into movies (eg., Tomb Raider, Wing Commander, etc.).

I surely can't wait for the often delayed Resident Evil movie. (Rumor: The story revolves around mutated scientists being battled by an army unit...STARS??).
