How About Another CG Movie, Square Enix?

By Spencer . May 30, 2010 . 2:16am

image Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within may have been a flop, but Advent Children was a cash cow. What does Square Enix think about another CG film?


Shinji Hashimoto, Senior Vice President, is for another flick. Korean site Gameshot asked, “are you thinking about making a new movie after the success of Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children?”


“Although, we haven’t thought about it there is always new CG technology we’re researching,” Hashimoto replied. “If I have a chance, I would like to try again.”


Shinji Hashimoto was credited as a producer on Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

    Advent Children is my favourite film. I would love too see them do one for XIII or even an Advent Children sequal XD

    • A XIII film would be awesome. As for an Advent Children sequel, I think I would actually like to see them go ahead and just make VII-2, as an actual game. There’s enough questions still open for that to work.

      • karasuKumo

        Exactly like what happened to Genesis? and will Sephiroth return?, these kind of questions are driving me mad haha

      That would be great since XIII is very story focused. Of course, I’d imagine they’d have to change the story a bit so that might not work. A prequel to the game might work.

    I wonder what kind of a film SE would be considering if they did another one? Hopefully not another FFVII addition, that compilation needs to be packed up before it gets even more out of hand.

  • Hmm.. Final Fantasy VI / III, Final Fantasy XI, or just get it over with and pop out a KH movie, unless they feel like popping in a Star Ocean one.

    • holyPaladin

      I want KH and SO ;p

    A Kingdom Hearts CG movie would probably make them millions. Then again, I can’t imagine the original KH characters next to CG renditions of Disney characters without looking ridiculous.

    • MrRobbyM

      Who do I start throwing money at?

  • I prefer if they could make some CG which is more light hearted compare to advent children and also the Final fantasy movie.. Be it a new story line or anything base on the franchise… Although I love both of the CG movies..

      Should leave that to Pixar or Dreamworks? I still need to watch “How to Train Your Dragon” :)

    I think animating the FFXIII Episode Zero prologue novel would do quite nicely, but they’d be just a bunch of shorts.. In retrospect, Spirits W/in by itself really wasn’t such a bad film at all, it just came out at the wrong time and totally went against people’s expectation, FF fans or regular movie going public alike (the latter mostly didn’t care or know what to make of a CG film loosely based on a famous video game).. I remember I was like “what the heck, this was a FF film?” when I stepped out of the theater, but was truly blown away by the breathtaking CG.. well other than the Ben Affleck look-alike voiced by Alec Baldwin.. Then Advent Children came. It’s obvious fans just want to see a CG feature based on an existing FF world that they’re familiar w/.

    Just hire a good screenwriter and think in a good plot and then we talk.

  • BrotherCavil

    How bout no? :< Two movies, and both were horrible.

    This is the part where SE should learn that they can't make competent movies, and draw the line… Not get further inspired.

  • wharcraff

    They could prolly think about a movie to go along with the 3rd birthday.That or Chrono Trigger spinoff with Toad or Magus as pointman.
