Mobile Suit Gundam Live Action Movie Announced at Anime Expo 2018!

 

Gundam Live ActionNot much is known at this point, only that Sunrise President & CEO Yasuo Miyakawa, Executive Vice-President of Production Cale Boyter, and Bandai Namco Holdings President and Representative Director Mitsuaki Taguchi appeared at the event to announce the movie. 

They showed an extremely brief teaser and then showed off the promo poster for the movie itself.     A few Japanese sites have reported that Jing Jing, a popular Asian actress (Pacific Rim: Uprising, Great Wall, King Kong Skull Island) is a popular choice for possibly portraying Lala in the movie.  Which could give us a timeline on where this is actually set in the Mobile Suit Gundam universe.

This would be bad news if I did not hear that Legendary will just be the production company, while Sunrise themselves is making the movie.  Sunrise has made every single major Gundam series since Mobile Suit Gundam.
