A few weeks ago, we got our first early look at what the upcoming live-action Monster Hunter movie will look like, but what do the game’s developers think of the movie?
In an interview published on Bahamut GNN, Monster Hunter World: Iceborne producer Ryozo Tsujimoto and director Kaname Fujioka shared their thoughts on the movie so far. While the two developers haven’t actually seen any of the movie yet, they believe that the filmmakers have enough respect for the source material, and are confident that the film “should probably satisfy players”.
What are your thoughts on the Monster Hunter live-action movie currently in production?
Fujioka: “Honestly, we haven’t watched it either yet (laughs), but we did discuss with the director and CG production team many times, and we could feel that they were thinking of the fans when making the movie, so the final result should probably satisfy players. Obviously a game and a movie will present itself differently, but the director is a professional, and we also feel his respect for Monster Hunter, so I hope players will look forward to that too.”
Tsujimoto: “We’re looking forward to it too.”
