According to a new press release, Hivemind, producer of The Expanse at Amazon and The Witcher for Netflix is co-producing a live-action series based on the Japanese property. They will be partnering up with Sony Pictures Television and, of course, Square Enix to bring it to the small screen.
Jason F. Brown, Sean Daniel, And Dinesh Shamadasani will be producing, and on board to write and executive produce are unknowns Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton (though Thornton does have a good amount of acting experience).
The show will also reportedly features series trademarks like airships, magic, and the bird creatures known as Chocobos. There’s even going to be a version of Cid, which is a name that pops up in every Final Fantasy game (here’s hoping we also get a Biggs and Wedge).
Interestingly enough, we actually have some details regarding its setting. The outlet states that it will be set in an established world for the game…but that the setting will be Eorzea, where the MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV is set. So no, don’t expect to see anything from the more narrative-centric takes on the franchise.
