The sequels to the 2017 first film have been produced as the manga's 20th anniversary project and will tell until the manga's final chapter. The first part Fullmetal Alchemist: The Avenger Scar is set to be released in Japan on May 20, 2022, then the second part Fullmetal Alchemist: Final Transmutation will follow on June 24.
The site has also posted a message from the original manga author Hiromu Arakawa as below:
The original manga is condensed, so the events are all over the place. I hope all the fans of the original manga will come and see the films, because it is really packed with highlights. I can't wait to see "Final Transmutation." I have nothing but high hopes!
I was excited from the very first scene where Ed and the Xing team were fighting. Lan Fan was especially cool! Yamada-kun, who played Ed, became a very attractive protagonist with a richer range of emotions in his acting. Also, Tsubasa-chan's crying performance made me also cry. But the part that made me cry the most was the scene of Fu-jiisan. I thought, "Oh, that's what looks like in live-action." I drew this story myself, but combined with the amazing advances in computer graphics, I was able to enjoy the film with a fresh feeling from beginning to end.
