Previously Delayed MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM: HATHAWAY Anime Film Set For Release On June 11

After being delayed a few times, Sunrise's Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway (Kidō Senshi Gundam: Senkō no Hathaway) anime film will now (potentially) open in Japan on June 11.

After being delayed three times, Mobile Suit Gundam Hathaway looks finally set to be released in Japanese theaters and its's coming quite soon. In just 10 days, the film will be released in theaters on June 11.

Senkō no Hathaway was originally set to be released on July 23, 2020 before being delayed twice in May 2021 before receiving the latest June 11 release date.

However, the latest state of emergency in Japan won't lift until June 20 and it doesn't seem likely that a ton of people will be venturing to the movie theaters during this time. As such, the limited-edition blu-ray for the film will also be released on home video on June 11.

The anime film is an adaptation of the three-volume 1989 novel series written by Yoshiyuki Tomino- the creator of the Gundam franchise. A three part film adaptation of the series was first announced in April 2018 but as you can see from the series of delays recounted above, getting the first installment released has been difficult thanks to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.   

Synopsis
—Do you know the Nejen?
If you know it, then I'll take you there—

The year is U.C. 0105. Twelve years have passed since the end of the second Neo Zeon War (Char's Rebellion). Even after "the Axis Shock," which seemed to indicate the future of humanity and the Universal Century, the world is still in a chaotic situation where intermittent military conflicts continue to break out. The Earth Federation government is more corrupt than ever, and its leadership has not only accelerated Earth's pollution, but also implemented an inhuman "Man Hunting" policy in which civilians are forcibly exiled to outer space.

 

The anti-Federation government organization "Mafty," led by someone called "Mafty Navue Erin," has taken a stand against the corruption of the Earth Sphere. Mafty carries out fierce acts of terrorism, assassinating high officials of the Federation government one after another, but it gains a certain level of support from the populace who are growing more opposed to the Federation government.


The person who calls himself "Mafty" and leads this organization is Hathaway Noa, the son of Bright Noa, an officer of the Earth Federation Forces who once participated in the One Year War. Hathaway himself joined the forces trying to stop Char's Rebellion. With firsthand knowledge of the ideals and ideologies of Amuro Ray and Char Aznable, he has become a warrior following in their footsteps, and plans to clear a path forward through armed resistance. His destiny, however, is drastically altered as he encounters the Federation Forces officer Kenneth Sleg and a mysterious young beauty named Gigi Andalucia.
