Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within emerges from its successful interactive game roots to deliver an exciting new breed of motion picture adventure. A fresh, provocative take on the sci-fi genre, the film blends spiritual underpinnings and the universal concerns of man versus nature with the energy of the digital gaming medium and the scope of the motion picture environment. CAST
Final Fantasy game creator Hironobu Sakaguchi's vision to take the latest in computer graphic technology and the best artists in the world to create a brand new form of entertainment now comes to the big screen-a visual feast of concept, motion, design and imagination with all-new, hyperReal characters embarking on an all-new adventure.
"I have always wanted to create a new form of entertainment that fuses the technical wizardry of interactive games with the sensational visual effects of motion pictures," says Sakaguchi. "Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within takes us one step closer to that dream.
"With the flexibility of these hyperReal characters," Sakaguchi continues, "it really opens up new doors and a whole new level of ideas and possibilities for feature films and entertainment."
Adds Chris Lee, one of the film's producers, "We have created technology to expand the envelope of what is possible for computer generated human characters."
