‘Attack on Titan’ Live Action Movie Update: Trailer Criticized by Japanese Fans [WATCH VIDEO]
The live-action “Attack on Titan” movie is one of the most anticipated manga-based movies next to “Boruto: Naruto The Movie” and “Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F.” Following the release of its second trailer, Japanese fans immediately aired their opinions on the film adaptation of the famous manga series. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
According to several reports, the live-action film recently released its second teaser, which reveals more of what lies inside the wall. The live-action film, which will be split into two parts, will be released on Aug. 1 and Sept. 19 in Japan while the U.S. release has yet to be announced.
While “Attack on Titan” movie is one of the most-awaited movies to come out on the big screen, Kotaku reported that Japanese fans were not quite as thrilled to see some changes. It was after the second teaser trailer was released.
The outlet cited that some fans were displeased with the movie’s English title, “Attack on Titan: End of the World.” It translates to, “Endo obu za Waarudo” in Japanese. Fans also aired their comments on the cast of the movie. The outlet also cited that most of the characters in the manga were white and had foreign names, but almost everyone in the movie were Japanese.
It was also reported that the casting of Kiko Mizuhara to pay the role of Mikasa is one of the most controversial issues cited by most fans. The actress, who grew up in Japan, was actually half-American and half-Korean. Some fans found it odd that someone who did not have Japanese heritage would play the movie’s main character.
According to the official synopsis posted on VC Post, the “Attack on Titan” would revolve around humans who live inside gigantic walls to protect themselves from the Titans. Everything was going well until a Titan breaches the wall and kills Eren’s mother. Eren, together with Mikasa and Armin set out in revenge against the Titans together with the Survey Cops.
“Attack on Titan” cast includes Haruma Miura (Eren Yager), Koko Mizuhara (Mikasa Ackerman), Takahiro Miura (Jean Kirstein), Kanata Hongi (Armin Arlert).
