Fullmetal Alchemist: The Final Chapter Plot: What will the sequels be about?
Warning: Major spoilers for Fullmetal Alchemist ahead.
If you've read Hiromu Arawaka's manga's series or watched the Fullmetal Alchemist or the more faithful adaptation anime series Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, you already know what to expect in the live-action sequels since they are based on them. However, the films may make some minor changes as other live-action anime adaptations have done in the past.
Based on the source material, Fullmetal Alchemist: The Final Chapter – The Vengeance of Scar will focus on the Elric brothers' conflict against Scar, the mysterious Ishvalan vigilante who’s out to kill State Alchemists for their war crimes against Ishval. The titular villain turned anti-hero was left out in the first Fullmetal Alchemist live-action movie due to time constraints, He is one of FMA's most complex characters and has a well-developed backstory.
Without giving away too much spoilers, the movie also ties in to deeper conflicts in the story's dark past, revealing the state's use of alchemists as "human weapons". The film sets the stage for the "final battle", which will take place in the final film of the trilogy, The Last Transmutation.
