There will be more than 150 actors in the cast. The play is scheduled for a long run of 55 performances, from July 28 to September 3, at Chiba's Maihama Amphitheater.

Akiko Kodama (Live Spectacle Naruto stage play director) is directing the "shocking stage play that stimulates all five senses." Takeshi Matsumura is writing the script. Additionally, Shunsuke Wada is composing the music, Takahiro (Takahiro Ueno) is handling the staging and choreography, Kazutaka Yoshino is in charge of acrobatics, and Rumi Matsui is in charge of art. Whole Hog Theatre's Alexandra Rutter (director of the British stage adaptation of Princess Mononoke) is credited as "movement director." Nelke Planning is producing the play.

Isayama's original manga began in 2009 and has inspired a television anime, numerous spinoff manga and anime, several novel series, a two-part live-action film project, a spinoff live-action television series, an original video anime (OVA), and an anthology graphic novel featuring short stories from western comic artists. The television anime's second season premiered earlier this month.
