Story[edit]

U.C.0096, the conflict dubbed the "Laplace Incident" ended with the dissolution of the Neo Zeon remnant group "The Sleeves". Both the Unicorn Gundam and the Banshee were sealed away, never to be seen again. With the original draft of the Universal Century Charter revealed, the existence of Newtypes and their promised rights have become known to the public. One year later, in U.C.0097, the world is still largely unchanged. Having thought to be lost two years ago, the Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex suddenly reappears. In an effort to capture the rogue Mobile Suit, the Federation and Neo-Zeon decided to collaborate in a capture operation, known as "Phoenix Hunt".

Production[edit]

The film project was first teased by Sunrise after they registered the domain name "gundam-nt.net" on April 5, 2018.[5] It was formally announced at an official live stream at the Gundam Base Tokyo on April 20, 2018, revealing the teaser trailer for the film as well as the characters. Included in the announcement were the titular mobile suit, the Narrative Gundam, alongside redesigned versions of the Sinanju Stein and the Unicorn Gundam 03 Phenex.[6] The film will be the first in Sunrise's "UC NexT 0100" project, which will cover the events of the next 100 years in the Universal Century timeline.[7] Aside from the movie, two additional Gundam projects were also revealed by Sunrise, one being a movie trilogy adaptation of Yoshiyuki Tomino's Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash novels and an overseas live-action sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. Fukui jokingly told the audience to "pretend you didn't see that".[8]

On August 15, the film's theatrical poster was revealed alongside the new cast and voice actors for the upcoming movie. The initial date of release in theaters is also revealed.[9] Upon the release of the theatrical poster, netizens in Twitter created parody pictures due to the bizarre poses of the main characters in the poster.[10] The character's poses is initially based on the statue The Rape of the Sabine Women.[11] In a cross-promotion with Gen Urobuchi's film Godzilla: The Planet Eater, a special theatrical poster was unveiled alongside merchandise and advanced pre orders of tickets for both films.[12][13][14] A special trailer for the crossover was later aired.[15] Sunrise later aired the final film trailer on November 29, 2018.[16]
