Announced at Day 2 of the Final Fantasy Fan Festival here in Tokyo, the movie is coming to Japanese theatres, but there is no word on if it'll be distributed internationally.
The show premiered in April 2017, and it's available now on American Netflix if you're interested in checking out the well-received drama. The story was inspired by real-life events.
The actor who played the father, Ren Osugi, passed away in February 2018. In the movie, he's being played by actor Kotaro Yoshida. More to come...
