Fullmetal Alchemist the Movie: Conqueror of Shamballa (劇場版「鋼の錬金術師 シャンバラを征く者」 Gekijoban "Hagane no Renkinjutsushi Shanbara o Yuku Mono") is a theatrical feature that premiered in Japan in July 23, 2005, and acts as a continuation of the Fullmetal Alchemist television series. The Japanese DVD was released on January 25, 2006, including with it a limited edition with a special box, English subtitles and a series of other extras. The U.S. version was shown in a limited number of theaters starting August 25, 2006, and the DVD was released September 12, 2006 and a limited edition November 14, 2006.

The movie's story is set two years after the events of the Fullmetal Alchemist TV series's last episode. Dragged from his homeworld of Amestris to this world, Earth, Edward Elric lives in Munich, Germany, in the year of 1923. Stripped of his alchemical powers and some of his limbs, but not the attachments for his automail (from his previous journey through the Gate), he has spent all this time researching rocketry together with Alfons Heiderich, a young man who resembles his own brother.

Our Earth is a parallel world to Amestris, and as a result Edward encounters many people whose faces are familiar to him. After rescuing and taking in Noa, a troubled Roma woman, Edward is thrown in a series of events that opens him a path to return to his homeworld, and a conspiracy that can bring serious consequences to both worlds.

Unaware of Edward's situation, Alphonse Elric ventures deeper into the mysteries of alchemy in search of a way to reunite with his older brother.

The movie is set against the backdrop of the depression and economic collapse of Germany after World War I and the formation of the Nazi Party, notably the events leading up to and including the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923. The antagonists frequently make references to it, though the actual event and its key real-life figures (including Adolf Hitler) and its aftermath are only shown in fleeting shots.

The movie was premiered on August 25th in a small number of theaters by Funimation Films with little promotion. Some only ran less than 10 showings of the film. Some promotional activity was done after the film was already gone from theaters. The movie trailer was shown to a group of about 300 persons at Shiokazecon in Houston, Texas on April 27th, 2006. Vic Mignogna, the English voice actor for Edward Elric, heavily promoted the film at Anime conventions.

According to a press release from Funimation and the SPJA, the first official screening was shown at the 2006 Anime Expo on Monday, July 3 at noon. The session was presented by Seiji Mizushima (the original director), Mike McFarland (English voice director and voice of Lieutenant Havoc) and voice actor Vic Mignogna (Edward Elric's voice for the English version). Romi Paku (Edward Elric's voice for the original version) was supposed to attend but she did not because she (a Korean national) did not have a valid visa. Other screenings of the movie occured at Otakon 2006, Gen Con 2006, Sugoicon 2006, Anime Weekend Atlanta 2006, and Wizard World Chicago 2006.

The special edition DVD release will be premiered at Nan Desu Kan in Denver according to news published on their website.
