So this is the last thing I could think of doing in hopes to find it.
If any one could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: Never mind, I figured out why I can't find it . But it still would have been cool to see.
You can still visit Japan to see it

Is it worth it to watch any of the SD series? Are they any good?

They're fun little shows. You can watch an episode, and if you don't enjoy it, feel free to drop it and not watch the rest.

One thing to note: SD Gundams series are for kids. So you might want to adjust your expectation based on that.

Genuine movies:
Charís Counterattack
Gundam F91
Gundam 00: A Wakening of the Trailblazer
G-Saviour (not really a recommended watch)

OVAs:
Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket
Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory
The 08th MS Team

MS IGLOO (1 & 2)
Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz (this one is originally a series of OVAs, but you better watch the movie compilation version since you lost technically nothing and Sunrise even adds some additional action sequences)
Gundam Unicorn (still on-going, last episode left)
Gundam Evolve
Gundam SEED: CE 73 Stargazer (again, the movie compilation version is a better watch)

PS: I'm a bit sleepy, so if I forgot something, anyone is welcomed to fill in

Yeah, just a minor correction... Stargazer was released as an ONA (Original Net animation) with 15 minute episodes, then released as one 45 minute episode on DVD. So it was never a movie.

Well, there are such things as direct-to-DVD (or other mediums) movies. I'm not really sure what the distinction is between what is or isn't a movie.

In anime terms, a movie is released directly to theaters (ie a feature film). OVAs are released directly to video/DVD.

What about The Afterglow of Zeon and Miller's Report?

Those were first released in movie theaters, hence were movies.

Ah, interesting. Is this just for anime or for the general Japanese media?

As far as I know... Only anime would use the term OVA. Not sure what a live action direct to video would be called.

The Japanese word for movies, 映画 (lit. projected pictures) definitely refers to a theatrical film though.

1) Am i missing anything if i watch the Zeta new translation movies instead of the original zeta series?

2A) Has there ever been a female mc to pilot a gundam or is it always a guy?

2B) What other females have piloted a gundam besides Cagalli and Lunamaria?

3A) So UC is the main timeline, so are FC, AC, AD, AW, CC, CE, and now RC all alternate timelines?

3B) Or are is it just debated on how each relates to UC?

1.) Yes, you’ll miss quite some materials, not to mention a bleaker ending compared to Translation Movies.
2A.) Christina MacKenzie piloted the main Gundam (codename: Gundam Alex) in Gundam 0080 OVA. But the thing is, she’s not the main character. The main character is a little boy name Alfred in which the story is viewed from. Christina is more like a secondary MC together with Bernie.
2B.) Quite a lot. Just to mention a few: Emma Sheen (Zeta), Rou Louka (ZZ), Marbet Fingerhat (Victory), Lady Une (only once in Wing), Selene MacGriff (Stargazer), Nena Trinity (00), and more. That’s not including side materials like mangas, novels, games, etc.
3A.) Yes, that's pretty much the case as far as Sunrise is concerned IIRC.
3B.) IIRC So far the debatable ones are CC & FC which some argue that those can be the far future of UC.

According to the Gundam.info archives, CC is the future of all Gundam timelines, 10s of thousands of years after UC. That's of course disputed, and even Sunrise's explanation of it, and the time frames, have changed throughout the years. And while Seed in some ways tried to reference the Turn A theory, 00, AGE and BF have ignored it.

And RC is officially confirmed to be the timeline after UC

Ah, that's right! I forgot that RC is Reguild Century. For some reason, I thought RC is GBF's timeline .

Gundam Build Fighter is a mix of the timelines, in terms of mobile weapons. It will not have a timeline per se, just be a different universe.
