I got the feeling that the beginning part is back in the past, before Midgar started using reactors and the plate was installed. There's a lot of sunlight, and the playground is supposed to be in the slums, beneath the plate.
The green light the girl sees might be when they turn on the first reactor for the first time, and Mako starts flowing. Cut to Aerith looking at a Mako leak years later.

I think that's probably right on the money. Great theory.

It did seem odd that the kids seemingly went from the "Upper Plate" to the slums. Couldn't have happened in "present day" Midgar.

Yup exactly what it was going for from my perspective.

This comparison is kinda sloppy but interesting nonetheless. Personally I liked how the intro intertwined 4 or so different songs together.

Shame they didn't keep the voices of the life stream in the intro.

The opening shot reminds me so much of the start of FFXIIIs title screen movie.

I disagree entirely. The following image shows that it can't be based from the slums, because the angle simply doesn't correspond. As you can see when Sector 7 has fallen, the reactors are probably twice as tall from what can be seen on the upper plate (where I've circled in blue). And yet the girl in the trailer clearly only sees the top half of the Reactor, as per where I've placed the blue arrows (and imagining Sector 5 collapsed rather than Sector 7).

It's gotta be the upper plate in Sector 5. (Now it could very well be from a period in history where even the upper plates had not become economically prosperous yet).

i appreciate the downgrade of her impossible beauty but the added tan to her face makes her look like she's dirty (maybe that is the point since midgar is a dirty place) but her skin makes her look like she's aging badly.

I agree it's just a park similar to the sector 6 slums one. Seemingly in sector 5 but that's also shown to be the one with many skyscrapers.
