Oh yay, there will be an even more chopped up version of Reconguista in G; I have to admit to a certain morbid curiosity. Maybe they'll finally be able to force Tomino to drop sub-plots and sub-sub-plots in favor of story flow...

Laughing Nah, probably not.

Well, at least one person here is genki about more Reconguista. :D

I guess the accidental Hathaway's Flash reveal before was true...I wonder what that "overseas drama like" UC2 thing will wind up being.

Really? A G-Reco comp film? I would have much preferred Frozen Teardrop.

The Origin OVA cut up as a TV series is alright but the rest.... Hathaway was a insufferable snot back in Char's Counterattack so I have no idea why people would ever want more of him and having read a very detailed summary of the novels some years back, it just sounds like a story that is pointless dark and miserable for the sake of being dark and miserable which is Tomino at his worst. Unless it been heavily rewritten, G-Reco will still be a hot mess as a movie and there hasn't been a good Build Fighters entry since the original.

All I can say is a most through meh to all these new projects.

I'm really interested to see what Hathaway's Flash is going to look like.

I loved Reconguista. Can't wait to see the film. It's too bad it looks like it's just going to be condensed into one.

Couldn't agree more. I think I will pass until the 3rd movie comes out because I don't think I can watch him without seeing the conclusion when I'm done.

The article says that this continues UC, but isn't this actually an AU spin off of UC? I want to say that it has to retcon elements of CCA to exist (which might be because it was intended to follow the novel version of CCA but I'm not sure on that).

its probably the live action announcement. Overseas means USA or hollywood and Drama will probably translate into a movie. I'm just guessing tho don't mind me.

Reconguista and the Origin don't interest me in the slightest, but I am curious about Hathaway's Flash. Don't really know much about the story aside from a bit of the ending.

Well, they have 3 movies to do it. I don't think they would jump into the story without giving context to the events of Char's Counterattack and in incorporating elements of Beltorchika's Children, there's an opportunity to reanimated the final battle with Hi-ν Gundam and Nightingale. I mean what better way to sell new toys.

Pretty much expected this. Like most people, I'm not too fond of Hathaway, but at the same time I am interested in this movie trilogy and how Sunrise will handle the overall story-line going into the late UC.

Hathaway's Flash is a sequel to the novel version of CCA, but i believe the only significant difference between Beltochika's Children and the CCA movie that carries over into Hathaway's Flash is spoiler[ Hathaway kills Quess]. I don't think it would be difficult to fit Hathaway's Flash into the same continuity as the CCA movie.

I highly doubt UC2 is the live action movie project. UC2 is mostly likely the third part of the "UC NexT 0100" project that Gundam Narrative and Hathaway's Flash are a part of. IIRC, when Narrative was announced in April, it was accidentally revealed that Narrative, HF, and UC2 were part of the UC NexT 0100 project with UC2 being slated for 2022.

Just promo visuals for the 40th anniversary like the article stated. Pretty sure this one is Ibo and 00 mixed up. (almost certain because of the flower and silver hand)

Personally I would rather them tweak Hathaway's Flash to fit the animated continuiti.

Don't really get the hate on Reconguista, the show is a massive pleb filter. You people that intend to watch it need that chart that some guy made that spoonfeed the entire story.
