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.

^ @Ducard - I'm trying to get more info on that. (See below.) ^^
And I thank you for it.
To be fair, I wouldn't necessarily mind if this movie is outside of continuity. A movie like, say, Dragonball Z: Tree of Might is blatantly non-canon with its source material, but the film more than makes up for it by giving characters a spotlight they never would have had otherwise. The movie is also a quasi-adaptation/alternate version of the Saiyan arc, which makes it fun. In that sense, the movie "earned" its right to tell an out-of-continuity story, because it was honest about its approach and just rolled with it.
