Sony Pictures Television and Hivemind Entertainment (the company behind the Netflix The Witcher series and Amazon’s The Expanse) have announced today that they are working with Square Enix to create a live-action Final Fantasy XIV series.
The series will be telling an original story set in Final Fantasy XIV‘s Eorzea as it “explores the struggle between magic and technology in a quest to bring peace to a land in conflict.”
The series will of course also have “magitek and beastmen, airships and chocobos” featuring a mix of both new and familiar characters, including Cid.
FINAL FANTASY XIV and Eorzea are the perfect gateway into FINAL FANTASY for longtime fans and newcomers alike. this show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it’s an immense honor to be bringing all of Eorzea’s iconic characters, settings, and concepts – including fan-favorites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos – to life for a television audience.”Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell
