In this world, there are few things more comforting than a homemade pie from someone you love. So, it makes sense that Fullmetal Alchemist would be no exception to the rule. The shonen series may be known for its grit and action, but the anime has its lighter moments - and one of those scenes famously involves an apple pie. The anime’s heroes find themselves inundated with the sweet treat after a close friend learns to bake. And, now, fans have learned the upcoming live-action adaptation of Fullmetal Alchemist will feature Winry Rockbell’s dessert.
UP NEXT: Fullmetal Alchemist Live-Action Movie Trailer Released
Over on Twitter, the official account for Japan’s Fullmetal Alchemist movie shared a photo of Winry’s go-to food. To celebrate 80,000 followers, Warner Bros. Japan gave fans a special behind-the-scenes look at the film’s apple pie prop. The delicious pie can be seen tucked neatly inside a box, and its golden brown crust looks insanely good.
The prop may not mean much at first glance, but the picture does give fans a look into the film’s storyline. In the anime, Winry learned how to bake from Gracia Hughes, the wife of Major Hughes. If the blonde-haired mechanic is going to gift the Elric Brothers with the treat, then it means the Hughes will have a sizable role in the film.
So, naturally, fans better get some tissues handy. They know how the family’s storyline ends.
If you are not familiar with Fullmetal Alchemist, then you have plenty of time to watch the anime before its live-action film arrives. The series follows brothers Edward and Alphonse after their mother tragically passes. They attempt to use alchemy to resurrect her, but the attempt takes Edward’s arm and leg - and it takes Alphonse’s entire body. Determined to get their bodies restored, Edward and Alphonse try to become State Alchemists so they can find the location of a powerful item known as the Philosopher’s Stone. But their journey ultimately leads them into a seedy world of government corruption and mass genocide.
