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.
<Possible "FMA Sacred Star of Milos" movie spoiler below> (highlight to read spoiler) And, one panel (bottom right panel on the posted scanned promo/ad page) shows someone whom I think is Melvin, and my guess is that this panel is from the part he reads some news and then decides to break out the prison. The panel shows Melvin saying: (Big "Milos" movie spoiler--->>>>)"Julia... and then "I have to go [there]." So, he probably read about the news that Julia was captured and that prompts him to escape from the prison and heads for Milos.
On a different note, in the special MiloStar promo show that ran on Nico Noco vid (as posted on "MiloStar News" thread) it is revealed that Table City was "created" as a side effect of digging up the area around the city for 300 years, because Creta was searching something there... but the show didn't reveal what they were looking for. I wonder what they were searching... ETA: Got the answer...kind of: Top article on this scan pic (July issue ..came out in June, 2011.. of Animedia magazine) says that "Sacred Star" is said to be buried around the Table City in Milos.
Also, the bottom article says the story's timeline is after Ed and Al discovers that 1. Philosopher's Stone is created using human lives and hence they gave up the idea of using Philosopher's Stone to get their bodies back, and 2. what they created by failed human transmutation was NOT of their mother, and realizes the fact that it is impossible to create human life by transmutation. (Which sounds about right.)
