One of the reasons why Shingeki no Kyojin It has resonated among so many people is that it deals with issues such as war and the manipulation of History, which are still as valid as decades ago; In addition to this, we cannot underestimate that Isayama has managed to build endearing and memorable characters that already occupy a special place in the hearts of manga and anime fans.
Isayama’s work was adapted into two live-action feature films in Japan, Attack on Titan – 55% and Attack on Titan Part 2 (2015), but neither of them lived up to the manga or anime. In October 2018 Variety reported that Andy Muschietti, director of It (It) – 85% would be in charge of the Hollywood live-action adaptation of Attack on Titan, produced by Warner Bros., but currently the filmmaker is busy with Flashpoint, so the production of Attack on Titan it surely won’t start anytime soon.
While we wait for more news about it, fans who have not read the manga can start reading or wait for December to arrive and the second part of the fourth season is released.
