The official website of Square Enix's feature-length CG film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV revealed the film's Japanese dub cast on Tuesday.

The role will be Ayano's voice acting debut. The other voice cast members include Gou Ayano, Shiori Kutsuna, Tsutomu Isobe, Kouichi Yamadera, Mitsuaki Kanuka, Tomokazu Seki, and Ayumi Fujimura.

Square Enix is also streaming the new second teaser trailer and other footage with the Japanese dub cast:

Text: The other story of Final Fantasy XV.
Nyx: Sire! Please give the marching orders to the Kingsglaive!
Luna: No matter what happens from here on out, my resolve is firm.
Regis: What will become of your happiness?
Drautos: Don't misunderstand, Nyx Ulcric.
Man: The war isn't over yet.
Man: We have two things to do: First, we save her. Then, we hold back the enemy ships.
Text: Everything is for the sake of the "Future King."

The film's English and Japanese casts now include:

Aaron Paul and Gou Ayano as Nyx Ulric
The story's protagonist, and member of the Kingsglaive, the king's elite guard under his personal command. When he was just a boy, King Regis saved him, and Nyx feels he owes the king a debt of gratitude for this. He has honed his fighting skills, and possesses an affinity for the magic that those of royal blood wield.

Lena Headey and Shiori Kutsuna as Lunafrena Nox Fleuret (Lunafreya in the English version)
An Oracle who communes directly with the gods, and is charged with the world's purification. She treasures the short time she spent with Noctis in her childhood. Although she was supposed to head to Altissia for her wedding with Noctis, she heads to Insomnia, where the peace treaty is being signed.

Sean Bean and Tsutomu Isobe as Regis Lucis Caelum
The reigning king of Lucis, and Noctis' father. He is wise, kind-hearted, and loved by his people. After Noctis leaves, he works to bring to fruition the end of hostilities between Lucis and Niflheim, its long-time enemy.

Kouichi Yamadera as Drautos
A general in addition to being a Kingsglaive. He is judged by others as a severe person, and he assesses himself even more harshly. He is Nyx's tutor in the art of combat.

Mitsuaki Kanuka as Libertus Ostium
A good friend to Nyx, and both of them grew up in the same town. He is a bright and cheerful person, but also shows a side of himself that is persistent when it comes to carrying out his responsibilities.

Tomokazu Seki as Luche Lazarus
A self-styled leader of the Kingsglaive, who has earned the confidence of his teammates.

Ayumi Fujimura as Crowe Altius
A wielder of great magic, one of few left in the world. She was born in the Kingdom of Lucis, but was raised an orphan. She thinks of the Kingsglaive as her family.

The game's site is also streaming interview videos with Ayano and Kutsuna, where they describe the experience of recording their lines, compare their delivery to the original English dub (which they use as a reference), and also preview some of their lines.

The story of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV takes place during the storyline of the Final Fantasy XV game, and follows what happens to King Regis after Noctis leaves on his trip with his friends. The film will star Aaron Paul as Nyx, Lena Headey as Lunafreya, and Sean Bean as King Regis.

Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata is producing the film. Takeshi Nozue (Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children co-director, co-producer) is directing the film, and Takashi Hasegawa (1999 GTO film, Crows Explode) is writing the script. John Graham is composing the music, and Yoko Shimomura (who is composing the music for the game) is composing the main theme.

The Blu-ray Disc containing the film will ship in Japan on September 30, the same day the game ships. The English website for the CG film lists that the film is "coming soon to Blu-ray and digital."

The film will open in Japanese theaters on July 9, and advance tickets went on sale on April 23.
