What he learns will change his and everyone’s life. Government secrets, the truth about Titans and their existence…are Titans even the real monsters?

Foreign Releases

On June 29, 2015, Funimation Entertainment, the same company that distributes the Attack on Titan anime in the United States, announced that it had acquired the American distribution rights for both live-action films from Toho. Funimation announced that the world premiere of Attack on Titan the Movie: Part 1 would be held on July 14 in Los Angeles, and that both parts of the film would be released in theaters across North, Central, and South America in the fall.[2] FUNimation later confirmed that Part 1 would be released on September 30, while Part 2 would be released on October 20.

Additionally, Madman, who has distributed many of the Godzilla films in Australia in the past, acquired the rights to release the films theatrically in Australia and New Zealand in August 2015.[3]

Miniseries

To tie in with the films, Toho announced a three-part miniseries, Attack on Titan: Beacon for Counterattack, which aired on the Japanese channel dTV on August 15. The series focuses on the supporting characters of Hans, a scientist who is obsessed with studying the Titans; Sasha, a Survey Corps trainee who is skilled at archery; and Fukushi and Lil, rivals who become lovers.

Trivia

  • The Colossal Titan, which in the manga and anime stands at approximately 60 meters tall, has its size doubled to 120 meters in this film.
  • The special effects in this movie are accomplished through a combination of practical effects and traditional tokusatsu techniques and computer generated imagery, a style Shinji Higuchi calls "hybrid." Higuchi employed similar techniques when working on the special effects for Gamera 2: Attack of Legion and Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris.
  • Attack on Titan the Movie: Part 2 and its predecessor are the only known Toho kaiju films to receive an English-language novelization: Attack on Titan: End of the World by Touji Asakura[4]
  • In Funimation's English dubs, every character who appears in both this film and the anime series has the same English voice actor, with Bryce Papenbrook as Eren, Trina Nishimura as Mikasa, Josh Grelle as Armin, Ashly Burch as Sasha, Mike McFarland as Jean, and Jessica Calvello as Hans/Hange. Tia Ballard (Lil), R. Bruce Elliot (Kubal), and David Wald (Souda) all portray characters similar to those they voice in the anime.

Shinji Higuchi and Hajime Isayama were influenced by The War of the Gargantuas when making their versions of Attack on Titan. Higuchi's influence can be seen in this video: https://youtu.be/RhEJy4fJD2A. While Hajime Isayama's influence can be seen in the Attack on Titan Guidebook, where he mentions not only War of the Gargantuas, but also Godzilla vs. Biollante and I believe Mothra and Gamera as well. I'll have to read it again. There's also a fan theory that the Attack on Titan movies are connected to The War of the Gargantuas and Frankenstein Conquers the World.
