Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, a CG animated sequel to the hit 1997 video game Final Fantasy 7th, made absolutely no sense to me when I saw it when it was released in 2005. The movie’s science fiction jargon is difficult to follow even if you are familiar with the game. However, it is a feast for the eyes that gives the once blocky characters of an eerie beauty FF7and inspired fans everywhere to say, “If only the game had looked this good.”
It’s now 2021 and that (kind of) happened. Final Fantasy 7 Remake brought Advent children– Levels of shine for Cloud’s sad little face, and now there are new fans in the franchise who have never seen him any other way. Meanwhile, Advent children has also buffed a bit over the years after being re-released on Blu-ray in 2009 Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Completed with an additional 26 minutes of material.
This year, it is releasing again on June 8th in a revamped 4K Blu-ray edition with HDR10 color, which is believed to have Cloud’s hair in it, which will eventually be sharp enough to block Sephiroth’s great Masamune. Who needs a buster sword when you have hair wax this strong?
I wish I could recommend this to everyone FF7 Newcomers watch this wonderfully opaque film as soon as it becomes available in such a high quality format. But FF7 remake cuts off halfway through the original FF7History and Remake Also includes some changes to the original that suggest our heroes’ path may differ from the path they took together in 1997.

That said, this remaster is only intended for seasoned fans or maybe newbies who don’t mind taking a trip to a possible future for the US FF7 Corridor. It will be available again on June 8th and, like the Blu-ray version from 2009, this one, according to Sony Pictures, offers “an extended Director’s Cut with 26 minutes of explosive additional material and over 1,000 reworked scenes”. The 4K Blu-ray also offers new Dolby Atmos audio in English and Japanese as well as 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio in both languages. The specifics of the film as well as a 1080p version of the film are contained on a standard Blu-ray disc.
