A new official teaser trailer for Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway just dropped.
Check it out.
Here’s the official description of the trailer:
“At the beginning, images from “Char’s Counterattack” revealing the rivalry and final battle between Amuro and Char are shown with the theme song “BEYOND THE TIME (Over the Moebius skies)”.
Then, hearing a piece of Hiroyuki Sawano’s background music, we see originally animated clips from this movie “Hathaway”, including new battle scenes, and meet the protagonist Hathaway Noa as well as the main characters such as Gigi Andulcia and Kenneth Sleg for the first time.
As the saga continues from “Char’s Counterattack” to “Hathaway”, these images evoke a next-gen reformation, along with the catch copy “His flash is the hope of humanity.””
As we reported back in January, the series will adapt Mobile Suit Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino’s 1989-1990 novel series, Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway’s Flash.
Tomino spoke about the project saying:
“30 years after I wrote those novels, they are finally being adapted into film. As the author, I am so happy.”
He also spoke about his works and the themes found within them are still relevant in today’s world.
“What decisions are necessary for modern society? The real world hasn’t progressed, and may even have regressed. Because of all the Gundam fans who gave this story the chance to reemerge, its themes can pierce through society today.”
The novel series follows Hathaway Noa, the son of Earth Federation commander Bright Noa.
Set in UC0105 it sees Hathaway disgusted with the increasing corruption of the Earth Federation. He joins a terrorist organization called Mufti and quickly becomes their leader.
He pilots the prototype RX-105 Ξ “Xi” Gundam and carries out attacks on senior Earth Federation officials.
The film will be directed by Shuko Murase, who previously worked on Ergo Proxy, Genocidal Organ, and Witch Hunter Robin among others.
The script is written by Yasuyuki Mutou. The score is composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who previously worked on Gundam UC and Attack on Titan.
The film debuts in Japan on July 23, 2020.
