posted on by Karen Ressler
The Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash film trilogy based on Yoshiyuki Tomino's novels is the second project in the "UC NexT 0100 Project" that will tackle the future of the UC timeline. The first project is the Mobile Suit Gundam Narrative (Kidō Senshi Gundam NT) anime film.
Tomino, the creator of the first Gundam series and several of the later projects, wrote the three-volume Kidō Senshi Gundam: Senkō no Hathaway (Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash or alternately, Mobile Suit Gundam: Flash's Hathaway) novel series from 1989 to 1990. The novel series is set in the year UC0105 and centers around Hathaway Noa, who appeared in the 1988 film Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack as the son of the influential Federation ship captain Bright Noa. (Char's Counterattack is set in the year UC 0093.) The novel series deals with the aftermath of Char's Counterattack's climatic finale.
Sunrise is planning to release new Gundam theatrical films every one to two years.
