Live Action Gundam Film in the Works


According to a recent announcement made at L.A.’s Anime Expo, Sunrise and Legendary are now collaborating on a live action film based on the long-running mecha franchise, Gundam. Originally created in 1979 by Yoshiyuki Tomino and a group of Sunrise creators known as Hajime Yatate, the Gundam franchise is known for featuring mechas that are a tad bit more grounded in realism compared the super robot franchises that were so popular at the time.

While still retaining hyper kinetic, large scale battles, the first iteration of the franchise – Mobile Suit Gundam – revolved around a militaristic space colony. The franchise has since grown into a commercial juggernaut that covers various anime series, films, manga, toys, and video games.

Sunrise and Legendary’s announcement also boasted that Gundam-related merchandise have consistently been one of the biggest earners for master toy licensee since its inception 4 decades ago. The new movie is said to be overseen by Cale Boyter on behalf of the Sunrise creative team. Legendary is known for their work on Godzilla: King of the Monsters, so they know their way around having colossal giants on screen.
