No, sorry. Not Bryan Cranston, but this is still an amazing cast.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV is another media project that Square Enix is undertaking to build hype for its upcoming blockbuster hit, and it is a full-length CG film that will chronicle the final days of the reign of Noctis’ father, King Regis.

The titular king is played by none other than Mr.Sean Bean. I mean, of course, right? I guess that means no spoilers are needed when saying that King Regis is totally going to die. I mean, what doesn’t Sean Bean die in?

Joining him are fellow Game of Thrones star Lena Headey as Luna and Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul as one of the king’s elite soldiers named Nyx, showing that Square Enix is going all out in securing top-notch talent for the film. In addition to the cast, Square Enix is working in collaboration with Sony Pictures Entertainment, and it will be released in the fall.

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the hallowed Crystal, but the menacing empire of Niflheim will stop at nothing to make it theirs. War has raged between the two for as long as most can remember.

King Regis of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers dubbed the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx Ulric and his fellow glaives stand before the crown city of Insomnia, fighting to stay the inexorable advance of Niflheim’s imperial army.

Before the overwhelming military might of the empire, King Regis can only salvage his kingdom by accepting anultimatum—he must cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.

As the war of wills rages, the machinations of Niflheim transform Insomnia into an awe-inspiring battleground, pulling Nyx into a struggle for the very survival of the kingdom.

Final Fantasy XV will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Sept. 30.
