It has been announced that the live-action movie adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa’s Fullmetal Alchemist will be released sometime in December 2017.
Also, the in-movie outfit of FMA character Roy Mustang will be displayed at Tokyo Comicon 2016, which is being held from December 2 to December 4 at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture. The outfit has been worn by Dean Fujioka, the actor who plays Roy in the movie.
The movie’s costume designer, Rie Nishihara, said, ‘In order to design realistic outfits, I researched the 19th Century’s Industrial Revolution, the era the manga is modelled on, as well as medieval suits of armor. They then had to have a form that was easy to move about in.’
Fujioka commented, ‘By coming to see Roy Mustang’s outfit, which is literally stained with blood and sweat, I would be pleased if you could feel not only the world of FMA, but also the passion of the staff who made the movie.’
The outfit will be displayed at the Warner Brothers Japan booth at Tokyo Comicon.
Unfortunately, the gloves that have come to be known as Roy’s trademark item are not on display with the outfit.
The manga Fullmetal Alchemist (Hagane no Rekinjutsushi) was serialised in Square Enix’s ‘Monthly Shonen GanGan’. The story tells the adventures of State Alchemist Edward and his younger brother Alphonse, who lost their beloved mother when they were young. It’s a very popular manga that has spawned several anime TV series and movie adaptations.
