Live-Action Attack on Titan Films’ Eren, Mikasa, 11 Others Unveiled in Costume

7 of 13 characters are original to film version

Japanese film news websites Eiga.com and Sanspo unveiled the first character visuals for the upcoming live-action Attack on Titan films.

The cast includes:
Haruma Miura as Eren


Kiko Mizuhara as Mikasa


Kanata Hongo as Armin


Satomi Ishihara as Hans/Hanji


Nanami Sakuraba as Sasha


Takahiro Miura as Jean


Hiroki Hasegawa as Shikishima


Ayame Misaki as Hiana


Pierre Taki as Souda


Jun Kunimura as Kubal


Shu Watanabe as Fukushi


Satoru Matsuo as Sannagi


Rina Takeda as Lil


The cast includes seven characters that are new to the film versions of the story. Sanspo reports that Hasegawa’s character Shikishima holds the key to the film’s story as “humanity’s strongest man.”

On the cast selection, producer Yoshihiro Sato said he did not pay as much attention to whether or not the cast members looked like the original characters. Instead, he had many discussions with Attack on Titan manga creator Hajime Isayama and went with actors who could act out the “characters’ spirits.”

The films’ director Shinji Higuchi confirmed that the project will span two films and stated that, with the supervision of Isayama, the story will be based on the world and characters of the manga, while incorporating new characters and new formidable enemies. Yuusuke Watanabe (Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer, 20th Century Boys, Gatchaman) is writing the script. Film critic Tomohiro Machiyama, who is also friends with Isayama, is working on the scripts together with Isayama and Watanabe.

Both films are slated to open next summer.

    Seriously? I can already tell this is just gonna end up like Avatar the last airbender. I personally had really high hopes for this movie. I actually thought that, “hey! They’ve seen how the other anime based movies were like! Their totally gonna make it as close to the manga/ anime as possible!” But NOOOOO, instead half the characters either have their name changed or look nothing like how their supposed to at all! Armin isn’t blond, Levi ‘s name has been changed and his hairstyle isn’t even similar to how it should look, jeans hairstyle could be better, and all the other characters are completely u.identifiable. except for maybe the one that I’m guessing is supposed to be Shardis.
    I’m disappointed this is what were going to get. All of us fans have waited for so long to hear news about this, and now we all find out Its just gonna end up like all movies based off of Animes. With awful ratings and the entire fandom basically pretending it dosent even exist.
    I suggest either rethink how your going to make this movie, or deal with millions of disappointed fans.
    After hearing how this movie will be like, I doubt I will see it myself. I’ll keep looking around to see what else I can find out about how this is going to be made, but like I said before;Not really impressed with what this movie is turning out to be…
