Final Fantasy, the movie: Will Fantasy really become reality?
Next summer, Columbia and Square Pictures will be releasing a very ambitious project: Final Fantasy, the movie. Based on themes and ideas surrounding the nearly 13-year-old video game franchise, the movie is being produced solely by computer generated (CG) graphics. That may not sound so fancy considering Toy Story was created by computers and was released way back in 1995, but this film hopes to break the boundaries of CG graphics with the most realistic looking (CG) images ever to grace the silver screen.
Providing the voices for the characters in the movie are several well-known actors such as: Alec Baldwin, Donald Sutherland, Steve Buscemi and James Woods. The $115 million budget has helped create the dazzling visuals, score prime vocal talents and create a fantastic website for the movie. The website for the film is just a part of the plan for the movie, but is vital in getting a taste of what this movie will have to offer. With a full-length (53 seconds long) trailer available at all times and shorter trailers (2 seconds long) rotating every week as well as images of the props, data on the voice actors, background details concerning both the plot and the making of the film and specifics on how the CG characters will look so real, the site is a marvel unto itself.
From the cast, trailer and other media available at the site, it looks as though the film may not be all Hollywood hype (it's not even being made in Hollywood, rather it's being created in Hawaii). Fantasy may indeed become reality on July 13th, 2001.
