Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV, is not a live action film. Instead, fans of the series will be introduced to a CGI-driven film. According to the press release The storyline:
“….is effectively self-contained, it is also part of a complex and dynamic fictional universe shared with two other properties, Brotherhood series and upcoming video game….”
John R. Graham composed the soundtrack for Kingsglaive Final Fantasy XV. Graham grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains area. His career as a music composer extends into various facets of the video game and movie industry. Yoko Shimomura penned the main theme for the film. Shimomura’s work can also be heard via the video game tie-in.
“I was brought into write filmic music that would inhabit the world of the film, a counterbalance to Yoko Shimomura’s beloved music for the Final Fantasy game series.
I ended up writing about 100 minutes of music which I hope conveys this simultaneous light-and-dark feeling and underlines the contradictions of the characters, the plot and even the lighting of the film.”
“In Kingsglaive, sacrifice is real and the stakes for the characters are sometimes fatal….”
“….Musically the score moves back and forth between dark and light, reflecting the ambiguity and changing position of both the characters and even the place, Lucius, where much of the action occurs.”
John R. Graham
