Information has started to leak out about the new plot of Final Fantasy: The
Movie. As we reported yesterday, the script has recently been
rewritten. While the original script was written by Al Reinert of Apollo 13
fame, the new script was written by Jeff Vintar.|
The plot is rumored to be very complex, featuring aliens, a discovery by
scientists that sets off a religious controversy, and magicians who were
created through science. The story is said to center around a female scientist
who is on the verge of breaking the language code of the alieans, and Grey, an
ArmorMan Warrior (sort of the police of the late 21st century) from New York.
Also include is the typical Square collection of heros, a brawler, a young
magician and several others.
Also rumored to be in the earliest of development stages are a sequel and
a prequel, a video game, and books detailing the adventures of Grey before
the time of the movie.
An anonymous Square employee confirmed very little of the rumors, but did say
that "The lead character is a female scientist and the aliens have already
killed off most of the worlds population when the tale begins." The source
also went on to state that while "There are no concrete game plans ... the
development of a game is assumed."
Aliens or ArmorMen?
