Square Enix has announced that it will screen a special preview edition of Final Fantasy VII Advent Children at the 61st Venice International Film Festival, held from September 1-11 in Venice, Italy. The 70-minute movie will be released on DVD, revisiting Midgar two years after the conclusion of the video game. In addition to the old characters including Vincent Valentine, Tifa, Cloud, Sid, and Tarks, new characters will be introduced, as well as a new "menace" causing the spread of a mysterious illness.
"We are honored to be a part of Venezia Digitale, this exciting new category that highlights the values of innovation and artistry of digital imagery," said director Tetsuya Nomura. "As we continually strive to create digital entertainment that pushes the boundaries of technology and art, we welcome the opportunity to become a part of the world cinema community through the Venice International Film Festival." The movie will be shown as part of "Venezia Digitale," the new digital image category of the Venice International Film Festival. Since the movie is still in development, it will only be a preview of the actual movie.
