      Hmm. Now that’s awesome. I’m not too keen on the film as much as the game itself. The movie seems too much like a live action film more than Square’s creations. But that’s probably just me.

      I’m surprised Sean Bean was hired for a Final Fantasy title. The first time I saw him was the first film of National Treasure. The second was that stupid film(at least I thought it was stupid) The Island.

      But these places in the game makes me wish I can just teleport there and explore, and poor young Noctis. Dreaming of shrinking down to size. The toys part reminds me of the Remake PS3 version of Castle of illusions starring Mickey Mouse, but in a really fun way.

      Can’t wait for the game to be released. We’re finally getting the game after TEN LONG YEARS! WOOT!
