Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Two years after "Final Fantasy 7", life seems to have returned to a state of normality after Sephiroth's attempts at mass genocide and the danger of Meteor. On the edge of the ruins of the metropolis Midgar, a new city has thrived, called the Edge and at it's center lies a monument that entails no one will forget Meteor and the ones who died. Cloud Strife, the hero who defeated Sephiroth, is a delivery boy now, no longer interested in fighting wars or leading rebellions. The world is at peace, and AVALANCHE is gone it's separate ways. Tifa Lockheart has reopened the new 7th Heaven, in the Edge, looking after Marlene and other orphans, including Denzel. Barret Wallace is working with the WRO in finding new energy sources to supply the world now that Mako is no longer used. Cid Highwind is also working with the WRO, as an airship pilot and leader of their air fleet. Reeve (and Cait Sith) is now heading the WRO and working, striving, to create a better world for all. Vincent Valentine has returned to solace, switching his places between his mansion home in Nibleheim and the Sleeping Forest, and the Forgotten City. yuffie Kirisagi is back in Wutai, though what the Ninja is doing is unknown to all. But despite this lull in adventure, there is something that is striving the world. Geostigma, the Sephiroth, JENOVA's memetic legacy. A disease that counters the body's own defence system in on itself and causes it to destroy itself. Rufus ShinRa, ex-President of Midgar, is a sufferer of the disease, along with the ex-SOLDIER Cloud, and lives now in his hide-away home the Healin Lodge with his faithful bodyguards, the Turks. But who are the mysterious silver haired band, known as Kadaj's Gang? Kadaj, Loz and yazoo, all of silver hair and teal eyes. Who are these strange people, who appear so much like Sephiroth?

- I won't just be a memory...
- Sephiroth: On your knees. I want you to beg for forgiveness.
Sephiroth: Your geostigma is gone... That's too bad. Cloud: Sephiroth, what do you want? Sephiroth: The last thoughts of Geostigma's death... those remnants will join the lifestream and girdle the planet; choking it; corroding it. What I want, Cloud, is to sail the cosmos with this planet as my vessel. Just as Mother did long ago. then one day we'll find a new planet and on it's soil we'll create a shining future. Cloud: What about this planet? Sephiroth: Well... That's up to you, Cloud.
Tifa Lockhart: [referring to Aerith] Which is it? A memory or us? Cloud: [to self] But... I let you die Aerith Gainsborough: [in Cloud's mind, sighs] Dilly-dally, shilly-shally. Isn't it time you do the forgiving?

- Part of the "Compilation of Final Fantasy VII" which consists of Fainaru fantajÓ VII (1997) (VG), Last Order: Final Fantasy VII (2005) (V), _Before Crisis: Final Fantasy VII (2006) (VG)_, _Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII (2006) (VG)_ and Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (2006) (VG).
In the battle between Tifa and Loz, when Loz's cellphone rings, his ring tone is the music that is played after a victorious battle in the Final Fantasy games. Coincidentally, the music played during the battle is the Final Fantasy VII battle music reprised.
According to Director Tetsuya Nomura in the DVD Commentary, the original movie was only supposed to be twenty minutes. The details of the original story are sketchy, but from what little Nomura has said about it, all we know is that it featured someone requesting a message to be sent to Cloud. The message is then relayed to Cloud through several children and, when the message finally reaches Cloud, we learn who the messenger is. Although Nomura insisted that he very much liked the original script, as it became the foundation for the theme of the final result of the movie, he decided to make the project more grand in scope only because early word of this movie generated so much interest that a demand for the film to be feature length eventually became so great that Nomura complied.
Kadaj's weapon is named the "Souba". Loz's weapon is named the "Dual Hound". Yazoo's weapon is named the "Velvet Nightmare". Cloud's sword is named the "First Tsurugi". His original "Buster Sword", given to him by Zack, is used to commemorate the spot Zack was killed. Cloud's bike is named "Fenrir".
The creators of the film had no prior knowledge of how to make a movie, so it was based on their knowledge of in-game movies.
