Considering no one has any idea who they'll be, I thought I would share who I think would be perfect for the job. Of course, I'm being creative and pretending like the game will be completely recast even though the cast of Advent Children was superb. It's all in good fun. Anyway, my dream team may be unrealistic, but I'm looking forward to Square Enix doing a great job of giving new life to their characters in this long-awaited remake.
