Attack on Titan anime just finished airing its third season and the greatness of the season went under the radar due to the more popular anime going on at the same time. Mind you I am not playing down the quality of Attack on Titan, but, people were mainly focused on other anime. The first part of the third season finished some time ago and the second half of the third season is slated for release in April 2019.
Attack On Titan Live Action Adaptation
It has been reported that the director of the 2017 remake of Stephen King’s It is actually going to direct the live-action adaptation of Attack on Titan. Warner Bros. is planning to bring out a live-action adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan. Well, I don’t know how to feel about the news. So far every live-action adaptation of an anime has been a complete disaster.
I mean we have already seen so many instances where people just saw the live-action adaptation, and they thought to themselves that, “This ain’t it chief.” Every live-action has been a disaster, and I don’t think the Attack on Titan adaptation will be any different. There has been some more news about the staff involved with the project. Masi Oka of Heroes fame has also been given a role in the production.
Along with Oka, Musicetti’s sister Barbara and David Heyman of Harry Potter are also involved in the project. This isn’t the first time that Attack on Titan has received live-action adaptations. There have actually been two live-action movies, which were released in 2015 in Japan.
The news will get mixed reactions from the fans. I’m personally not in favor of making live action adaptations. They just ruin the series in my opinion. I don’t recall any live-action adaptation being any good.
