Following a successful run in its native Japan, Mobile Suit Gundam NT will be headed to American theaters with a new English-language dub for one night in February. Produced by Sunrise Inc.’s 1st Studio, directed by Toshikazu Yoshizawa and written by Harutoshi Fukui, NT is a new work in the Universal Century saga and depicts what lies beyond Gundam UC.
The story begins in U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered. The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding.
Beginning on January 18, 2019, tickets for Mobile Suit Gundam NT can be purchased online through Fathom Events or at participating theater box offices. The film will arrive on Tuesday, February 19, at 7 PM local time.
