Based on the hit anime and manga series of the same name, the first live action Attack on Titan movie is due for release in Japan on the first of August and will be screened internationally soon after the Japanese premiere! The second film, Attack on Titan: End of the World premieres on the 19th of September 2015 and is also expected to get a release outside of Japan.

The Japanese live action Attack on Titan movies will be directed by Shinji Higuchi, who is known for his storyboarding on several hit anime series and movies such as Macross Plus, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kill la Kill, Pokemon: Jirachi Wish Maker among many others.
Attack on Titan manga creator, Hajime Isayama will be supervising production and the script will be written by Yusuke Watanabe who recently worked on 2014’s new Dragon Ball Z anime movie, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.
Due to the fact that almost all the characters in the Attack on Titan anime and manga series are non-Japanese, several elements of the film will be changed to make the production more practical for a Japanese film. While the famous walls and cities will still be present, the part of the world the story takes place in will be set in a post-apocalyptic Asian country (possibly even Japan itself) instead of a European one and only several main characters from the series will be featured in the film with the supporting cast being made up of a collection of original characters with Japanese names to suit the entirely Japanese cast.
Eren, Mikasa and Armin will be portrayed by Haruma Miura, Kiko Mizuhara and Kanata Hongo while Satomi Ishihara, Nanami Sakuraba and Takahiro Miura will play Hans, Sasha and Jean. Other Japanese actors starring in the two live action Attack on Titan films include, Hiroki Hasegawa as Shikishima, Ayame Misaki as Hiana, Pierre Taki as Souda, Jun Kunimura as Kubal, Shu Watanabe as Fukushi, Satoru Matsuo as Sannagi and Rina Takeda as Lil.
