Fans of Final Fantasy, Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Aaron Paul -- or anything that has anything to do with fantasy -- rejoice! A new video featurette from the upcoming feature-length Final Fantasy CGI movie Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV has been released via the good folks over at IGN.

The cool featurette takes us behind the scenes of the new movie from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Square Enix, plunging us into the world of Lucis, which mixes the medieval with modern technology. It features the voice acting talents of Game of Thrones alum Sean Bean and Lena Headey (Ned Stark and Cersei Lannister on the hit HBO fantasy series) and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul (for the English version).

The movie will be released on Blu-ray and Digital in time for the Final Fantasy XV video game, which is slated to hit store shelves on Sept. 30. However, if you can’t wait until then, the movie will hit select movie theaters on Aug. 19, so keep your eyes peeled to see if it'll come to a theater near you.


Sean Bean will play King Regis of Lucis, while Lena Headey portrays Princess Luna. Aaron Paul will play a soldier named Nyx. In case you missed it the first time around, here’s the official trailer:


The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the world’s last remaining Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, they fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae, captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to Niflheim rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

UPDATE: A brand-new trailer has been released during E3 2016. Have a look:
