Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway will be the latest anime entry to the Gundam franchise. After getting pushed back due to COVID-19, Gundam.info has announced that 214 theaters across Japan will screen the movie, including 4D and Dolby Cinema screenings. They also released a brand new teaser trailer as well:
The video confirms the anime’s new May 7, 2021 release. Sunrise originally planned to release the anime in July of last year, but moved it back to May this year. It will adapt Gundam creator Yoshiyuki “Kill’em All” Tomino’s Hathaway’s Flash novel, which serves as a direct sequel to his Mobile Suit Gundam Char’s Counterattack – Beltorchika Children novel. The anime itself will serve as a sequel to the classic Char’s Counterattack anime film.
Gundam Wing character designer Shukou Murase will direct the movie, with Yasuyuki Muto writing the screenplay. And much like all Gundam anime, Sunrise will also be animating the film. Expect the staff to reveal more details on the movie’s international release in the days to come.
