Warner Bros. is also streaming a video showing actors Ryōsuke Yamada (Edward Elric), Tsubasa Honda (Winry Rockbell), Kanata Hongou (Envy), and Keisuke Watanabe (Ling Yao) reacting to the visuals.

The films feature a returning cast from the first live-action movie. Fumihiko Sori (live-action Ping Pong) is returning to direct the films.
The films commemorate the 20th anniversary of Hiromu Arakawa’s original Fullmetal Alchemist manga.
The first live-action film opened at the Tokyo International Film Festival in October 2017 for its world premiere, before opening in Japan on December 2017.
