Takeda says that they were thinking of making a movie from the time the TV series started airing. After it aired, people were saying they wanted to see more, and they had confidence that this work could be handed down for 10 years like Eva. But when he talked about it to Imaishi while the TV series was still going, he was told "No way!"

So what is the movie about? They were first thinking of making it a summary of the TV series, but don't intend to just rearrange it and end it like that. The theme is "revival." Becoming resolved, Imaishi said "I'll show something that is and is not Gurren Lagann!" and began writing great plans, but of course they were turned down. Although, they want to show everyone something very different from what they'd expect.

Also, currently they're in the middle of working on a completely new production different from the movie. They can't reveal the names of the participating staff yet, but he can say that they are distinguished members. They will screen a portion of this at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. "With the movie, we want to betray everyone's expectations in a good way. We'll reveal even more news at the Anime Fair, so please come watch."

---

So...the movie is a recap (but different?) and they're working on something new.
Betray our expectations? Who the fuck do they think we are?

No matter what though, I look forward to more news to the eventual release of this epic.

I'm hoping it's an alternative retelling in the line of "Do You Remember Love?" rather than RahXephon's or Diebuster's.

Definitely sounds like Garlock; alternate universe Gurren-Lagann where Simon charges Spiral Nemesis and the GDG head on? That would be awesome. The whole "betray expectations in a good way" sounds like the TV series, though. :| And it's debatable as to whether or not that's really a good thing.

Just found this out.

This is going to be DOPE.

Oh the possibilities....

Btw, is this going to be a remake / alternate retelling? Or is that not confirmed yet? I wouldn't mind watching a remake / alternate retelling, but new Gurren-Lagann is always welcome .

The summary / translation tells me that it's more the former, but then again, things change

The thread was only 29 posts long and you couldn't bear to look for yourself? Go and read the darn thread to find out how much people know.

A commercial for the movie announcement aired during the rebroadcast. No new info though.

But Ootsuka's post in the blog confirms that the movie will be a summary of the TV series. He says they hope to make something enjoyable for both people who watched it on TV and people who are seeing it for the first time.

Not technically movie-related, but...

I've seen something incredible...

Today, there was a private showing of Gurren Lagann's ●● in the company.
Are they going to show at least a preview of this at the Anime Fair?
Well, it was incredible in many ways...
There were things they definitely could not broadcast on television
Look forward to news about not just the movie, but this secret project as well
Have to say I'm looking forward to the secret project a lot more than the movie now.

Personally I'm hoping a scene of Simon & Nia, maybe something from that one week after they returned to earth, since they only showed one damn kiss in canon....but that's probably not very likely.
