The anime’s official website also released several new still images from the movie as well. However, fans from the Philippines have been talking about the stills because they teased the movie’s setting in the country. Particularly, several scenes are happening in the city of Davao. What’s more is that Filipino fans are going wild over the fact that popular fast food chain, Jollibee, appeared in the still images. Hathaway Noa’s team seem to be eating over at a Jollibee in the pictures.
Here are the rest of the new stills:
Meanwhile, 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.
