Final Fantasy 9 Is Getting A French Animated Television Series

Recommended Posts

So many games are getting movie and television adaptations, and one more just got added to that growing list. Final Fantasy 9 is the latest gaming adventure to get its own animated series. The company in charge of production promises that it will be a kid-friendly adventure that fans will love. 




The Final Fantasy 9 animated series is being developed by French Cyber Group Studios alongside Square Enix. The goal for the studio is to begin production at the end of 2021, or the beginning of 2022 at the latest. “The games have a strong co-viewing potential,” said Pierre Sissmann, the CEO of Cyber Group Studios, to Kidscreen.  He added that this series will appeal to both those familiar with Final Fantasy and for those just coming to it, giving both a chance to immerse themselves within a beloved universe.


For those that may have missed out on Final Fantasy 9's story, it's a charming tale that tells the story it wants to tell. Princess Garnet has been kidnapped by Zidane and the Tantalus Theater Troupe. The heir of Alexandria wasn't exactly a helpless victim, however, seeing as she actually wanted to escape from the pressures of royalty to experience the outside world. Shenanigans are afoot, and both her and her personal guard join Zidane's group to embark on an epic quest filled with adorable chibi-like characters, wholesome dialogue, and - of course - the threat of darkness overtaking the world and everything we know within it.

Maybe kid-friendly means it will cut down on the innuendo? Not a lot of violence? But if Avatar LTA was a kid show, maybe it won't be as dumbed down as that statement would seem. As long as it has some semblance of the FFIX story in it, I'll be interested in watching. I won't be interested if it is just a comedy show using the FFIX characters. Maybe this FF game is the best for adapting to a TV show?
