Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix’s impossibly pretty CG movie, will make its bow in select theaters this August, while Aaron Paul, Lena Headey and Sean Bean take you behind the scenes in a new featurette.
Headlining the drama as King Regis, Bean — no stranger to biting the bullet on the big screen — outlines the core story behind Final Fantasy XV in the clip above. And you can get the skinny on the goings-on of Square’s lush world via the movie’s official synopsis:
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.
Look for Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV to grace the silver screen on August 19 – just in time for FFXV releasing across PS4 and Xbox One on September 30.
