Over the decades, Mobile Suit: Gundam has explored countless realities that are linked by the war-dealing mechs that are often the deciding factor in a war amongst the stars. Now, the latest film in the series takes the opportunity to revisit the legendary "lost episode" in the franchise's history, with fans in North America, and around the world, gaining the opportunity later this month to see a new take on Amuro and his adventures via Mobile Suit Gundam: Cucuruz Doan's Island.
For decades, Mobile Suit: Gundam has towered over the mech competition in the anime realm, gaining in popularity and using its classic weapons of destruction to weave countless stories across numerous movies and television series. To this day, the series has continued exploring new worlds while revisiting familiar ones, with this October set to see the release of the next chapter in the franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch From Mercury, which will give us the series' first female protagonist piloting a mech of her own. Aside from this upcoming series, a new sequel to the film, Hathaway's Flash, is also in development while Netflix is working on a live-action feature-length film that will bring the mech-filled war to life in a brand new way.
A new poster for the film was revealed by Crunchyroll as well, giving us a new look at Amuro and some of the other classic heroes and villains of the original Gundam anime series via this new take in the upcoming film that will be hitting North America on September 27 and 28:
The official description of the upcoming Gundam film from Crunchyroll, the streaming service that is bringing the movie based on the fabled lost episode of the original series, reads as such:
"After a covert mission goes wrong, Mobile Suit pilot Amuro Ray and his comrades are stranded on a remote island. The battalion was sent to a land called the Island of No Return to clear off any enemy forces, only to find a group of children and an enemy mecha attack. Now Amuro must find a way for them all to escape this mysterious land, but not before meeting a strange man—Cucuruz Doan."
