“Fullmetal Alchemist” tells the story of two brothers, Edward and Alphonse Elric, who attempt to use alchemy to resurrect their deceased mother. The bid fails, and in the process, Edward’s arm and leg – along with Alphonse’s entire body – are taken. The series then follows the two as they attempt to find the Philosopher’s Stone in order to restore their bodies.

Directed by Fumihiko Sori (best known for the 2002 film “Ping Pong”), the movie stars Ryosuke Yamada as Edward Elric. The adaptation of the anime promises to feature most of the cast from the original series, including Winry Rockbell, Colonel Roy Mustang, and even Shou Tucker (so prepare to cry).

“Fullmetal Alchemist” hits theaters in Japan in late-2017.
