Square Enix and Sony are developing a live-action Final Fantasy TV series with Hivemind, the production company behind The Expanse and Netflix's The Witcher. The live-action TV series will center on an original story set in the world of Eorzea, first introduced in the online game Final Fantasy XIV. It will delve into "the struggle between magic and technology in a quest to bring peace to a land in conflict."
The show will feature franchise fixtures like Chocobos and the character Cid.
Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell said:
FINAL FANTASY XIV and Eorzea are the perfect gateway into FINAL FANTASY for longtime fans and newcomers alike. This show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it's an immense honor to be bringing all of Eorzea's iconic characters, settings, and concepts – including fan-favorites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos – to life for a television audience.
Jason Brown, Hivemind Co-Founder and Co-President said:
Television is the ideal medium to capture the extraordinary depth, sophisticated themes, and unparalleled imagination of FINAL FANTASY and its multitude of unique and fully realized characters. We are working tirelessly to bring together artists from around the world who are united in honoring the extraordinary legacy of this franchise and its millions of fans around the world.
No cast members and have been announced yet, and there is also no news on when the series will arrive.
