Sony Pictures and Hivemind announce live-action Final Fantasy XIV television series

An original story set in the world of Eorzea.



Sony Pictures Television and Hivemind Entertainment, the production company behind Amazon’s The Expanse and the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher, have announced a partnership with Square Enix to develop a live-action adaptation television series of Final Fantasy XIV.

Here is an overview of the series, via Sony Pictures:

The live-action television series will tell an original story set in the fantastic world of Eorzea, based on Final Fantasy XIV, the franchise’s blockbuster online role-playing game. Since it first debuted in 2013, the online title has continued to delight and amass millions of players around the world year over year and only further cemented Final Fantasy as one of the most storied and influential franchises in gaming history.

Inspired directly by the world and characters of the title’s fourteenth installment, the project will embrace the bold and genre-bending sensibilities of the revered and long-running Final Fantasy series as it explores the struggle between magic and technology in a quest to bring peace to a land in conflict. Filled with iconic hallmarks of the title’s revered mythology—magitek and beastmen, airships and chocobos – the forthcoming series will feature a mixture of new and familiar faces. Those will, notably, include the live-action debut of Cid—one of the games’ central and most beloved characters who has appeared in almost every installment of the franchise to date.

“Final Fantasy XIV and Eorzea are the perfect gateway into Final Fantasy for longtime fans and newcomers alike,” said Sony Pictures Television co-president Chris Parnell in a press release. “This show is about embracing and embodying all of the elements that have made the mythos such an endlessly captivating phenomenon, and it’s an immense honor to be bringing all of Eorzea’s iconic characters, settings, and concepts—including fan-favorites like Cid and, of course, the chocobos – to life for a television audience.”

Hivemind Entertainment co-founder and co-president Jason Brown added, “Television is the ideal medium to capture the extraordinary depth, sophisticated themes, and unparalleled imagination of Final Fantasy and its multitude of unique and fully realized characters. We are working tirelessly to bring together artists from around the world who are united in honoring the extraordinary legacy of this franchise and its millions of fans around the world.”

An air date for the television series was not announced.

You know it's not gonna last one season. But, fingers crossed.

Just the cost of making all the outfits, the sets and the make-up props, it will never break even and they will cancel it.
