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.

The only connection I find they could make to the end of the manga/Brotherhood is that they could start the movie with Ed & uncle Al telling this story to the children. Although, I don't find it very likely to happen It's another possibility.
(Warning!! The following post contains FMA:Brotherhood/manga Series Final Spoilers! Please do not read what's under the spoiler covere if you do not wish to be spoiled.)
That would actually be an ADORABLE idea for the movie. I really wanted to see the kids when they're older, possibly even know their names. I hate not knowing names! Though it's kind of a nice mystery. But...No matter how much I'd like to see that happen, I think it's VERY doubtful. My sure bet is on a midquel. I doubt we'll even see a glimpse of Winry or Pinako, for example; it'll probably just be one of Ed's missions for the military where Al tags along..
But honestly, isn't that a GOOD thing? Sure, I'd like to see something more connected to the main plotline (like what I mentioned in the spoiler tags) but I doubt it'll happen. If it's a GOOD filler story, we WILL like it. As long as the plot's coherent and not lame or anything of the sorts... *sighs* And as long as the characters stay true to themselves.
On other point, I'm not sure about the animation. Can't put my finger on it...It's computerized, as were some Brotherhood scenes (like Envy's transformation, and I liked that) but it seems they've exaggerated a little. Can't tell much from such a short clip though. WE NEED A LONGER PEEP CLIP!! XD
And...people... Werewolves? Batwoman? Please. I don't think they'd be THAT basic. Methinks one is a chimera and the other is using... err... advanced technology. (Bruce Wayne wannabe). [/is shot]
We still have TONS of time to take guesses, though. 8D
