FMA Movie Sequel?  
Okay, someone once told me they were making a second FMA movie.  Now, I have scoured the web a lot, and I have yet to find anything official, or even markedly believeable about this, so I was wondering if anyone out there has had better luck.  I found a lot of forum people talking about how they'd "heard" a rumor, but there was never any evidence at all to back it up.

Likewise, is there anything vaguely official, or contained in an interview which says the series/movies has "officially" ended?  (As in: there are no certain plans to continue it?)

Thanks for your help!

There's nothing official. You know how easily rumors are started. Anyway,...what could a second film accomplish for the series that the first one didn't? Anything more would be fanservice, and I hope no one would profane such an awesome series that way.

I don't know, but there are still loose ends they COULD choose to tie up (Winry being one), but I'd certainly hope if they DID do such a thing, that the director is inspired to do it because he has a great concept, and not _simply_ as fan-service.

And mind you, I'm THRILLED there was even a first movie to begin with. I was really bothered by the end of 51, because it didn't feel "complete." And I liked that the movie was "complete" (although, imperfect, as is custom), but it really felt like the ending was also purposefully molded so there COULD be a sequel, and part of my brain still wants to know one way or another if that's even a possibility.

I'd think the director, himself, might have answered this somewhere in an interview, but I've had no luck finding any such thing. Perhaps at AnimeExpo someone will ask him...

The director said in an interview with Adult Swim not too long ago that he isn't working on anymore Fullmetal Alchemist.

many of us, mind you, were NOT happy with the movie. true we didn't like the way the series ended as well, but the movie just made it worse. in mine, and others, opinion.

i hope it stays ended.

if you've seen the 3 OVAs, especially the 1 called Kids, i bet it does stay ended. IMO, "Kids" gave us a nice, extremely short wrap-up look at the future... and some closure that fine, the movie sucked but it all turned out okay afterall.

Personally if they make another FMA movie I would enjoy something from the middle of the series. Not a continuation of the Movie.
I know I know. But Al is back human in the Smabala!!!

Yes he is, still I think many of us would enjoy a movie with many characters showing up, an alive hughes showing pictures under Ed's nose and Roy going on his nerves, Al pickingup kittens, and all that jazz.
like looking back at a part of the series when everything was not so cunfused yet and it seemed simple and easiy.


Or a 120minutes movie only dedicated for Trisha and Hohenheim *gets bricked* ...and chibi lil baby Elrics?

But Al is back human in the Smabala!!!

That would be awesome for us Al whores fans. I personally think the movie was somewhat Ed-sided. Al barely appearead *cries* And we don't even get a fucking human!Al doll T__T...

I haven't heard rumors of a second movie. I have heard rumor of FMA 2 where we follow Ed and Al in our world on their quest to return home. Like Yu-Gi-Oh Gx, etc. But that was just rumor. Would be kinda dumb to continue the name since Ed cannot perform alchemy in our world. I think a better movie to replace COS would be better was not happy with the movie. It was like the series did not exist with that particular movie and I so hated the ending.

i got a feeling... and maybe i'm wrong... from the movie that they CHOSE to not ever go home. it was their choice and they were happy so long as the gate never claimed any one else again and that they were together.

a 2nd movie contradicting that would give me nightmares.

I heard that there was going to be 3 ova (already done) and one final movie. Then again, it is only an unsubstantiated rumor..

What's nice for me is if there's a movie (or 3-5 eps OVA) centered along the military guys, and of course RoyAi!

Try asking Vic aka Ed. He has his own website.

Well I don´t know ( I didn´t like the movie either...and totally hated the ova "kids") but I think that if they were going to make a second movie they a) would have to pretend COS and Kids didn´t happen (like in pokemon) or b) something about returning to Amestris or something like that...

I don't know, but I think a second movie would kill FMA. Even more.
