The films, Attack on Titan Part 1 – Guren no Yumiya (The Crimson Bow And Arrow) and Attack on Titan Part 2 – Jiyuu no Tsubasa (Wings Of Freedom), are two feature-length summations of the Araki Tetsuo-helmed animated series inspired by Isayama Hajime’s 2009 action horror manga about a dystopian world plagued with seemingly invincible man-eating giants called Titans.
One hundred years after the first attack, mankind’s last city is on the verge of destruction when the Titans re-emerge, devastating the inhabitants of Wall Maria, the outer segment of which there are three.
