Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway is one of the most anticipated films of this year. The action-packed, mecha sci-fi anime film is definitely going to blow everyone’s mind when it is released.
But sadly, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the upcoming film has received a severe blow!
Directed by Shuko Murase and a star-studded cast, the film promises to take the Gundam franchise to new heights with its well-choreographed action sequences and captivating story.
Fans have been eagerly waiting for the release of the film for a long time. But there is a nasty piece of news awaiting them!
The official website of Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway has announced that the release of the anime film has been postponed.
The film was supposed to be released on May 21st, but with the Japanese state of emergency getting extended, the producers of the film have decided to postpone it. The new release date has not yet been announced.
The website also revealed that the tickets that have been already bought would be valid even if the release date is changed. The new date will be announced only when the coronavirus crisis is under control in Japan.
The anime film was scheduled for a release on July 23, 2020. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was rescheduled for May 2021. But the film has again suffered due to the pandemic.
Due to its repeated postponement, fans are getting impatient. In January, the franchise had released an English subbed trailer to please the fans.
With the film getting postponed again, it is possible that Sunrise Studios, the production house, might release something similar yet again!
A lot of anime films and live-action movies have already been postponed. We hope that the COVID situation is resolved soon and that we can get back to our normal lives.
The Gundam series is a science fiction anime created by Yoshiyuki Tomino and Sunrise, featuring huge robots, known as “Gundam.”
The series changes its setting in each part, ranging from Earth to far-off planets. All the shows have their own story, and some of them take place in an alternative universe.
In every story, Gundam has unique purposes. Sometimes it’s a deadly war weapon, sometimes a beautiful art or sometimes even an outdated technology.
