The Gundam.info portal website revealed the cast, new visual, and November 19 debut date for Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin IV: Unmei no Zenya (Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin IV Eve of Destiny), the fourth episode of the Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin anime, on Thursday.
As in previous installments, the fourth episode will screen in 15 theaters in Japan in a two-week limited engagement, and will again be offered in a Blu-ray Disc Collector's Edition in limited supply alongside the screenings. The standard edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available on December 9.

The site previously streamed an English-subtitled and English-dubbed trailer for the anime last month.
The current Char/Sayla arc of the anime will end with the fourth episode this fall. The fourth episode will feature Char's "fateful encounter" with the girl Lalah sune, the first Gundam anime's protagonist Amuro Ray, and "the legendary Dr. Minovsky" (whose physics breakthroughs eventually led to mobile suit warfare). The episode will also cover the development of the MS-04 and the RX-78 Gundam mobile suits, as well as the first ever mobile suit battle in history. Hiroko Moriguchi will perform the episode's theme song.
After the fourth episode the anime will enter the Loum Arc that will cover the Battle of Loum.
The third episode began screening in 15 theaters in Japan for two weeks on May 21. The original video anime's first episode, titled "Blue-Eyed Casval," premiered in a limited engagement in Japanese theaters in February 2015. The second episode, "Artesia's Sorrow," opened in Japan last October.
