    So does this mean that Tomino has been a replicant all along? Figures. :)

    Unfortunately, this is very likely a false rumor (Hat tip to the 00 Forums' HomelessGal with this post)

    See here (7th comment)

    And here:

    Don't believe anything until & unless there's something official out there. I wouldn't expect it, though.

    It'd be nice if this news came true, though. Maybe this will spark some positive internet hype...

    For the record, by the way, the Seed movie is actually not in production right now. As you can see here, the now-retired Gunota Headlines blog highlighted a story on this about a year ago. There was a plot written, but the movie was basically put on hold due at least in part to Chiaki Morosawa's health issues.

    So there's the only way to get a Gundam movie is either Tomino starts liking society again, or the cure of cancer.

    Yeah, it's false. Hence why I didn't make a thread.

    Which is why I said some form of production. Until they come out and say it is just not happening at all, I will not assume it has shut down completely.

    I also had some doubts whether the Unicorn movie was true, which is was I added a question mark in the title and later said "If this is true.."

    Wait, Tomino doesn't want to burn us all anymore? When did this happen?

    So the people saying it was wrong were the trolls? Eh? Gah!

    It's cool to see this happen, though.

    Naturally, I would like to see the 00 movie come out first.

    The initial report said Tomino announced it, whilst the video shows the Sunrise CEO.
    You also have to factor in that a few years ago, an Itallian fan claimed he was working with Tomino to make a live action version of MSG. So there was good reason to be sceptical. Plus we're still in the middle of drama over 0081.

    Good points. I'm just stunned that a questionable rumor actually may have come true. The opposite is the case for, what, 98% of the time.

    If confirmed for sure, nice to see that they are in fact willing to animate something that wouldn't bring in completely fresh merchandise.

    The Unicorn looks...rather awesome.

    I see that the 00 trend is continuing, given that the director and script writer have both never touched Gundam before. Aside from Katoki on the mecha design team, I see staff with Gundam Wing and Gundam X and Macross Frontier in common...all in all, it seems to be in good hands.

    First off, this is great news and these early images look rather impressive.

    Second, from what I've read elsewhere (Mechatalk), there seems to be some debate as to whether this is actually a movie instead of an OVA or even a TV series, since apparently there's been some mention about the storyboards for "episode one" or something to that effect.

    Then again, it could be a series of movies, for all we know.

    'Fraid I'm just a tad bit more interested in this global stream of all Gundam titles. :sweat: Wonder if they dubbed ZZ for the occasion (or possibly earlier), I do...
