After keeping Attack On Titan fans eagerly anticipating in the dark for months since word on Shinji Higuchi's upcoming live action film adaptation first broke out, Toho has finally announced the cast line-up to the Japanese media, along with revealing several key art posters of each character in their costumes. 

On the casting process, producer Sato Yoshihiro stated that it wasn't necessarily crucial to find actors who resemble the appearances of the original designs from the manga. Rather, with approval by Attack On Titan creator Isayama Hajime himself, they cast actors based on who they felt could capture the "spirit" of the original characters. 

The film will feature seven new characters not seen before in the manga, as well as new enemies. The story will be told in two parts. Watanabe Yûsuke , the screenwriter of both Gatchaman and Gantz live action, scripted the story while Tsuge Isao, the art director of 13 Asssassins, served as the costume designer.

The two-part fantasy film is scheduled for theatrical release in Japan during the summer of 2015.

They REALLY didn't want white people in this movie huh?

It's an anime adaptation filmed and produced by a Japanese company, what did you expect?

I didn't know Rina Takeda was going to be in this. Nice!

Lookin' good. Hopefully the special effects(which can be iffy in Japanese films) can do justice to the world of the anime. That car commercial they did a couple of years ago looked great, so if they kept up that quality over the entire film then it should be fine.

I'm going to have an orgasm like never before if it's even 1/10 the justice it serves as the anime show.

The manga and anime are also both produced by Japanese companies and both feature overwhelmingly non-Japanese characters. It's a fair point.

Well i'd say perhaps non-Japanese characters in terms of looks, but its pretty rare for manga and anime to depict actual asian people in their things, fmore often than not.

Both the manga and the anime explicitly mention that there are no Asian people left within the three walls. Mikasa even got abducted when she was young, because slavers thought she'd fetch a good price as the only half-Asian girl left in the world.

I sort-of figured this would maybe set up a plot point a few seasons ahead. Apparently not.

Oh right, it's been a while since I read it admittedly so that must've slipped my mind. It just seems that these live-action anime productions are usually geared to the existing Japanese audience and not much thought is taken regarding international markets. Plus I guess having characters from all different backgrounds would make communication a bit awkward or stifled.

Awesome to see Rina Tekada in this. Good looking posters, now bring on the teaser.
