      Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV (Japanese: キングスグレイブ ファイナルファンタジーXV Hepburn: Kingusugureibu: Fainaru Fantajī Fifutīn?) is a 2016 Japanese computer-animated science fantasy film directed by Takeshi Nozue and scripted by Takashi Hasegawa from a story by Saori Itamuro and Kazushige Nojima. Developed primarily by Square Enix's dedicated CGI studio Visual Works, Kingsglaive is based on the setting and story of the 2016 video game Final Fantasy XV, which is thematically connected to the Fabula Nova Crystallis subseries. Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV released theatrically in July 2016 in Japan by Aniplex, and received a limited theatrical run in August in North America by Stage 6 Films. Commercial digital physical and downloadable versions were released in October 2016. It will also be bundled in different editions of Final Fantasy XV alongside fellow spin-off title Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV.

      Kingsglaive takes place in parallel to the events of Final Fantasy XV, focusing on events surrounding Regis Lucis Caelum CXIII, the father of main character Noctis. The main protagonists are from the Kingsglaive, an elite guard sharing Regis' magical powers that defend the kingdom of Lucis and its crystal from the invading empire of Niflheim. Faced with continued detrimental conflict, Regis accepts an armistice with Niflheim: as part of the peace treaty, his son must marry Lady Lunafreya Nox Fleuret of the imperial province of Tenebrae. The treaty turns out to be a ruse for Niflheim to invade, and Kingsglaive soldier Nyx Ulric is caught up with Regis and Lunafreya in a battle to secure the future of Lucis. The film's voice cast includes Gō Ayano, Tsutomu Isobe, and Shiori Kutsuna in Japanese; and Aaron Paul, Sean Bean, and Lena Headey in English.
