I'm very curious whether this crisis in Japan will affect the release date of the movie and cancel the FMA festival. I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised.
They write about delays here, but they seem to involve only Gangan extras. So far.
Thank you, Kasumisty! The announcement on the official JP site(as posted by Kasumisty above) says that the sale of "pre-sale" tickets for the FMA:MiloStar movie, with the special school-calendar set (including one with Arakawa-sensei's original drawing design) as the bonus gift, that was scheduled to start on March 19, 2011 will be postponed, due to the shipment delays and other difficulties because of the catastrophic earthquake.
Obviously, Japan is in the midst of major crisis right now, with thousands of people dead, and they are facing tons of difficult situations including the failure of four of their nuclear plants, and I don't know how the current situation would affect the release of the new FMA movie. Right now my heart goes out for people in Japan, and as for the movie release and the FMA Festival, I guess we just have to wait-and-see and hope for the best.
