Sony Pictures Television and Hivemind Productions have announced that they are joining forces with Square Enix to develop a live-action TV series based on Final Fantasy XIV.
The show is said to take place in Eorzea, the same location that the Final Fantasy XIV MMORPG features.
Sony Pictures Television Co-President Chris Parnell confirmed that the show will feature Final Fantasy staples like Chocobos and everyone's favourite airship captain Cid.
Parnell went on to say "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."
The shows writing will be handled by Ben Lustig and Jake Thornton, who will also act as executive producers for the upcoming adaptation.
Hivemind Productions is known for their work on The Expanse and is currently hard at work on the upcoming Netflix series based on The Witcher series, which is said to debut by the end of this year.
There's no doubt that the budget needed to bring the magical word of Final Fantasy to life will be astronomical, so I wouldn't be surprised if we see this one appearing on one of the major streaming services.
This won't be the first time the Final Fantasy series has made its way to TV or Movies, but here's hoping this show is done right.
With Amazon currently working on a Lord of the Rings TV show and HBO working on a prequel Game of Thrones series, there's going to be plenty to watch for fantasy fans during the next couple of years.
