Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children Complete will be playing in U.S. theaters for two days only in February.
Square Enix announced its partnership with Fathom and Sony Pictures on Tuesday to bring the director’s cut of the CGI cinematic sequel to the original Final Fantasy 7 to theaters for the very first time. The English dubbed version of the movie will play on February 21, and the English subbed version plays on February 22 — just one week before the launch of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.
Before the start of each screening of Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children Complete, which is 26 minutes longer than the original film, fans will get to see an introductory reel that breaks down the history of Final Fantasy 7, the game’s connection to the movie, and gameplay footage of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. They’ll also watch interviews with Tetsuya Nomura, Naoki Hamaguchi, and Yoshinori Kitase as they discuss the making of the upcoming remake title, which won Most Anticipated Game at The Game Awards 2023.
For those who’ve never seen Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children before, it picks up two years after the events of Final Fantasy 7, where Cloud comes out of hiding to join Tifa and the gang to fight a mysterious illness quickly spreading throughout Midgar. At the same time, they have to face off with a villainous trio who plan to resurrect Sephiroth using the remains of the extraterrestrial villains Jenova.
Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children came out as a direct-to-DVD film in both Japan and the U.S. in 2005 and 2006, respectively, never receiving the same theatrical release treatment Final Fantasy: Spirits Within did. Three years later, Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children Complete was released on Blu-ray, delighting fans with extra action sequences. Seeing the movie on the big screen for the first time ever will be an even bigger treat, especially since the theatrical release will be in the U.S.
Because Final Fantasy 7: Advent Children Complete is having a limited theatrical run, you may want to check Fathom’s website to see if the movie is playing in theaters in your area.
Final Fantasy 7: Rebirth releases February 29 exclusively on PS5.
