Ehmergerd. It looks so good.

-Aerith looks excellent.
-Cloud has been improved, his face and body looks less weird now.
-They've changed the lighting to make it a bit more cartoony than previously. Fine with me, makes it look more like the original.
-Barret is going full-on Mr T impression.
-Combat looking very action-based.
-I seriously hope the first game isn't just set in Midgar. That's all we've seen so far.
-Looks like we probably ARE on for a release before March 2020 then!

I think that's because they did motion face-captures for the movies, and don't for the games.

Also I wonder when/where one can find the voice actor info for the FFVIIR trailer. The English cast sounds the same to me as the previous one(s), but I am also people speculating that those are recasts. Maybe the voice direction is different than normal and is causing confusion?

I"m surprised that the new trailer even came out before the E3 Event next month. Really wasn't expecting it. But at least they improved Cloud's look, which is a good thing considering how icky he looked in the first Remake trailer five years ago. Aerith actually looks beautiful in this, somewhat close to her design in Advent Children and Crisis Core.

As for the voice acting...Yeah, it's new casting since it's a Remake, and remakes get new voice actors as well, which is sad. I was hoping that Steve Burton and George Newbern and most of the others (Quinton Flynn, Tifa's voice actress, ecta, except for Red XIII and Hojo obviously) would return to reprise their roles considering, but...I had a feeling this would happen. Still think I'll avoid the Remake, unfortunately, but I will keep looking it up in case they change my mind.

Cloud and Aeris sound great. I may actually turn voices on if the dialogue is that smooth in the game - pretty good english lip syncing! Thanks Square-Enix.

Barret's delivery of that "Take a LOAD offa yo should-uhs" line is... I should reserve judgement, it just kinda tweaked me. It feels like maybe they read the line like that to the actor, and he was just repeating it. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that that take probably wasn't the VA's favorite, but they put it in the trailer because it matched what the execs thought it should sound like...

I'm not so sure. I mean, it wasn't that long ago that Steve Burton reprised his role as Cloud in Dissidia NT, and George Newbern did the same in the same game. Wonder why the Remake is getting new voice actors if both of them were still available? Is it because they decided since it's a Remake they decided to not bother in calling the Original voice actors and decide to do the "Out with the old, in with the new" kind of thing? If so...then that ultimately sucks in my opinion.

The developers are stupid then.
