I'd Totally Watch This Live-Action Final Fantasy VII Fan Film

Well done, don’t you think? This was directed by Italian filmmaker Gionata Medeot, who told me he hopes to send this teaser to producers and raise funds to turn it into an actual film.

“Aren’t you worried about Square Enix’s lawyers asking you to stop?” I asked him in an e-mail. Square shut down a fanmade Chrono Trigger project back in 2010.

“I know,” he said, “but my lady Tifa knows Hironobu Sakaguchi and when we finish the teaser we’ll send it to him and we hope to be blessed; if not we’ll put it on YouTube equally and fingers crossed.”

Good luck, Gionata! I hope your movie about Aeris doesn’t wind up like Aeris.
