I'm intrigued, but don't know what to make of it yet. Thoughts?

It really depends on what they try to do. a big problem with Gundam is that it has almost always been a long epic, following characters for months and see they develop. This is not great for a movie format. It is also not suitable for the superhero-esque plot, where someone rises from zero to hero either, because these are soldiers / civilians swept up by the tides of war.

The closest I can think of would be something akin to Thunderbolt, but even that is not great if you consider newcomers.


Overall I guess I am sceptical until it is out.

OH BOY I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE WAR FOR EARTH 2/G-SAVIOUR 2

(on a more serious note: that experimental short film "Behind the Front" was really interesting and probably the most suitable kind of live-action Gundam thing)

I'm of the frame of mind that it's gonna be bad, I suspect that Gundam won't really translate super well to live action in general. I can suspend my disbelief for an anime, but I'm not sure I can for a movie. I'll still go to see it and try to keep an open mind.

I wouldn't worry too much as to how badly this thing might turn out, because everything about it screams "permanent resident of Development Hell."

I remember posting about this years ago. Development hell is pretty apt.

They're probably not going to go straight for a Gundam movie. Probably they'll start with a Guntank movie. You know, to set up the cinematic universe.
