FMA "MiloStar" Story-line/Time-line/Plot discussions (Any post that contains actual movie spoiler --> please post in SPOILER ZONE forum), Please do NOT post any posts with movie spoilers on this thread!
The first page scan in hilary's post above says the time period of the movie is when Al is already able to perform alchemy without the alchemy circle, and Roy and the gang are still in Central.
- From part of interview with the director of the new FMA movie... He said they wanted to make a story for some place Ed and Al have never visited before, and make them meet some new people there, and then asked the writer, Mr. Shinpo who is also famous for his mystery novels, to write the story for this movie.
The latest info, (although we could already guess it ^^) is that according to the wording on recent Yahoo.jp news (the news was actually about the Japanese volume books of FMA manga being expected to surpass the total sales volume of 5,000,000 copies with the release of Japanese volume book 27 on Nov. 22) this has been announced to be an ANIMATION motion picture. ...yes, I know that's nothing new, but this is the first time I see that news media clearly saying this one will be an animation motion picture. ^^
And, since I'm making a new post, let me put my latest predictions/wild guess for the movie: XD
(Note: The following are my predictions/wild guess only, and there probably would be no truth to it. )
...There will be promo pic, poster, etc. for the new movie on Jan issue of Shounen GanGan, with increasing promo in coming months.
...The movie will open either July 2011 (first premier in June in Tokyo) or in Dec. 2011.
...In the movie, Ed & Al are still somewhere in the middle of FMA manga story-line, and the story in the movie is not directly related to the main FMAmanga story-line, but some side "event" such as in FMA Game "Prince of Dawn," with bad guys that are independent of the main FMA manga storyline, and of course Ed, Al, & Mustang's gang will eventually take care of the bad guys.

I'm surprised how many people are dissapointed that it is not a sequel... were you not satisfied about how the series ended? There is really not much that can be added and made into a movie there - Ed has his arm back, he can't use alchemy, Al is back to normal, so they cleared their main goal already, half of the characters are dead or their stories also came to the end... - if the creators tried to make a sequel out of it - it wouldn't be the same Fullmetal as it was for me.
I WOULD love to see some side story or even an elseworld. It would be even greater if Arakawa wrote this, but I trust the storymakers to came up with something good. Because, hey, it's classic Fullmetal Alchemist we know and loved.
And I so prefer Ed with his full automail
Due to the cancellation of the end of FMA, Kasumisty must think of new signature.
