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.

Ok after watching the teaser trailer I must say most of my interest for this movie has dissapeared
I was expecting something that would have to do more with the main story instead of a filler movie, maybe even a sequel or something between (Warning! Series Final Spoiler ahead -->)Ed and Al leaving for their new journey and the moment of that final photograph with Ed's children, the only way I would have accepted a midquel/filler movie would be if Arakawa would have a hand in this, but the script is being written by someone else. The good thing is that maybe with this i will appreciate more Conqueror of Shamballa, even if i don't like it at least it's important for the main story of the first anime and gives a conclusion (a very bad one IMO but a conclusion).
I'm not liking the new character design, well maybe it's not the design but the colors they are using i don't know, it will be very difficult for me to get used to it, and i know it's a very early but Werewolves and flying people with machine guns? On the other hand the music from the teaser is great, I would like to hear more.
In the end even if my interest dropped from 100 to 25 more or less, i will watch this movie sometime but since this will be filler it doesn't matter if i watch it or not, sorry if I sound like a big pessimist, but I can't stand to see FMA turning into a Naruto type of movie.
