Nomura wanted to turn Final Fantasy XV into a musical

Tetsuya Nomura was so moved by the recent film adaptation of Les Miserables, he was dead set on turning FFXV into a musical.

Speaking with IGN, Nomura confessed his love for the film and films in general – saying the morning after he saw it he stormed into the Square Enix offices intent on converting it into an epic musical.

On the subject of films, Nomura admits he doesn’t play too many games at home and instead delves into the world of movies – watching several on a typical night. His biggest cinematic inspiration is Baz Lurhman, the director behind Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and The Great Gatsby.
