so are the Mobile Suits going to be full CG or 2D? or even a combination of both like Unicorn did?

I hope that trailer is not an indication of the final product because those evidently CG backgrounds did not look very well meshed with the character. The Mobile Suit in the background looked ridiculous as well.

The director for the HF movie trilogy is Shuukou Murase who have directed Witch Hunter Robin, Ergo Proxy, Gangsta & Genocidal Organ. So, if anything, we know that he won't hold back on the grim and grit. He's good when it comes to dark and gloomy story. I have issues with Gangsta in the past but that was more due to the source material itself being a letdown and Murase could only follow it in the anime form.

Didn't Murase also have a hand in Gundam Wing? Might be remembering it wrong.

Just copying what I posted in the thread request forum:
While I love Tomino's ideas most of the series he makes tends to give stilted dialog to the characters. While that was all okay and good in the old days, after Unicorn I actually expect a bit more intelligent conversation and portrayal.

Essentially, I'll give it some time to see more footage but am hoping this at least takes the time to make the character interactions engaging, not just the MS battles.

ITS HAPPENING, PEOPLE! Hathaway's Flash is finally being animated! Rejoice, the dream is real. It will be interesting just how they will retcon this to fit in the animated timeline.

You know, one of the best parts about this continuing UC saga is that we get to see characters grow. For example, we saw Mineva, Katz & Hathaway when they were still very young infants (a baby in Mineva's case) and then we see them grow at least within two shows. For Hathaway, we saw him as a 7-year-old kid (playing with his sister Cheimin) in Zeta. Then we get to see his teenage self in CCA and we'll see him in his twenties in these upcoming movies. Bright, on the other hand, doesn't seem to age during the time from MSG to Unicorn which is curious when his wife's (Mirai's) appearance (or character design) already changed rather drastically from MSG -> Zeta -> CCA .

Mostly with character designs and character animation IIRC.

Actually now wondering how much will be changed in the animated version as opposed to the novelisation. The main gist will still be the same--Hathaway rebelling against the Federation. But given the events of Unicorn and NT...plus that the movie version of CCA rather than the novel Beltorchikas Children is the basis...

I'm also surprised that Bandai hasn't at least teased any new Hathaways Flash Gunpla outside of the Gustav Karl (Which I think is more of an Gundam NT kit). But I'm definitely thinking this...is going to be mainly HGUC kits. The Xi and Penelope are WAY too big to be made into MG format. Or if they are made, I'm thinking at the very least they'll be more expensive than the MG EX-S Gundam Ver 2.0

Tomino's reaction to the upcoming Hathaway's Flash movie trilogy:

Mobile Suit Gundam creator and author of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway's Flash novels Yoshiyuki Tomino shared an official comment regarding the recent announcement that the books are being adapted into a film trilogy.

"30 years after I wrote those novels, they are finally being adapted into film. As the author, I am so happy," he said.

Tomino noted that the theme of the novels is "What decisions are necessary for modern society?" Because so much time had elapsed since their original publication, he read his work again and found himself surprised. "The real world hasn't progressed, and may even have regressed. Because of all the Gundam fans who gave this story the chance to reemerge, its themes can pierce through society today."

Tomino expressed his wish that the hopeful message in the series can be passed to the next generation, who will pioneer the future. He mused that perhaps the fans who have grown up with Gundam are aware that they were unable to break through the regression and feeling of hopelessness in the real world, and so are passing the baton.

"The production staff are getting younger, and the viewers who take in their work are even younger than that. I believe that this young generation will one day pave the way for a reformation of humanity - for Newtypes," he concluded.
I gotta say, it's nice that he's being overall positive about this project. It kinda surprised me tbh.

- Sad to completely agree with Tomino there.

I used to laugh at how weirdly ridiculous the whole "Souls held back by Gravity" phrase sounded when I was younger, but I start to see where Tomino's coming from. People as a community don't want to expand, they want to move inward. EG: Do the exact same thing as before, it only looks and feels a bit different. Even in the future of space, there's still the same boundaries and nationalistic/racial/ideological tendencies (see: Zeon, the Crossbone Vanguard's Cosmo Babylonia, the Zanscare Empires).
