New Gundam SEED Theatrical Film Due Soon?

gundam_seed_new_movie_lacus

The Anime Newtype Channel’s blog reports Gundam SEED head screenwriter Chiaki Morosawa as suggesting there will be an official announcement (on the SEED movie) coming soon at the recent Kadokawa Shoten New Year’s party.

The Gundam SEED storyline, beginning with the 2002 original series and continued by the 2005 Gundam SEED: Destiny sequel, has been in limbo since writer Morosawa’s problems with cancer surfaced in 2008 and the unnamed theatrical film that is said to wrap up the SEED storyline has since been on hiatus.

The writer of Anime Newtype Channel’s blog, professional author Shinya Yamada, spoke of inquiring about the new Gundam SEED movie during a meeting with Chiaki Morosawa (pictured above on the right) but did not offer any details of her response. When pressed by a commentor on the site for more information, he responded:

As a fan myself, I am quite concerned about it (the film) as well.

In any case, it does seem that there will be an announcement coming soon, so please wait a bit longer.

Not a confirmation by any stretch of the imagination, but it at least a sign of Morosawa’s intent to continue writing the SEED series’ final story.

    I can't believe they still want to make a story about C.E. again. C.E. sucks.

    I agree, Seed and Destiny were not the best but were enjopyable to a Gundam fan. Could they have been better? Yes, very much so. 00 seems to blend elements from Seed, Wing and Full Metal Panic if you watch it closely.

    I think SEED is best anime with good rating and dvd sales..
    if you say SEED is failure then what about gundam 00 with rating and dvd sale below SEED?
    for me 00 is anime with bad story, strange politic, lame action (man..please fight more than 2 minute),always come a new unit/part almost every episode.. who you think you're, doraemon with his miracle pocket..
    Graham, since when you obsessed to japan's culture (mr bushido, masurao)..what the hell
    00 is just an expensive trash

    Hey, you're not NinjaXSnake, are you?

    Pfft, whether you are or you aren't, you're clearly into mindless soap opera 'war drama' crap and are as spoiled as hell. "GIMME MOAR FIGHTS!!!1!" "OMG YOU ARE OBSESSED WITH CULTURE!1!!" "SALES MEAN EVERYTHING!1!!!"

    People liked Destiny, and SEED, for some, a whole lot less than 00.

    Petulant shit.

    Did Lacus take an overdose of growth hormones? Those look more like cow udders than anything else.

    And i think they should leave CE alone. Shit started to turn EPIC after Flay screwed Kira.

    First of all anyone here who has shown ANY dissrespect toward the creator of this show regarding the said ilness makes me feel physically sick, and you should be ashamed you insensitive bastards. Do you know what cancer IS? Can you imagine what it would be like if you or someone you LOVE had this affliction!? You don't have a fucking clue. Secondly, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and here's mine:
    I LOVE seed, and I don't feel exactly the same about Destiny, but I did really enjoy it. I found Destiny upsetting for a few reasons: Firstly, Kira and Athrun are such close freinds, there is no way the'd have such a huge difference of opinion, and even so would NEVER turn against each other after all they've been though. Secondly, Athrun learned ALOT in seed and became very wise, there is NO WAY he would just side with Zaft again and follow some weird plan to control everyones minds, and I thought they overplayed the idea that he was lost and confused, and made him look like a neive and lost fool. I understand however that the writer was trying to make the characters more human, so they make mistakes, get confused, and forget what they've learned... I can respect that. However I really don't like the implication that Athrun and Cagalli have split up, and the way Athrun treated her in the later part of the series, which I personally, thought was out of character. But I guess people have relationship problems too... And it's not impossible they may yet get together again, as they clearly have feelingsfor each other. Shinn was a fool, but I felt sorry for him at the same time, and I can understand what happened to him.
    So I can deal with my reasons for not LOVING destiny like I did seed, and get over them I guess. I would LOVE a proper movie, and I REALLY hope it happens, and that Cagalli and Athrun get together again!! lol Also, don't forget that Destiny showed us that Mu Laflaga is still alive. I liked that.

    Finally, I wish the creator and their family the best of good health and prosperity, and may God be with them and keep them safe.

    From a real fan ^_~

    My cynical side tell me that Morosawa's "cancer" excuse means that she's going through a Creator Breakdown phase, which also affected Hideaki Anno through Evangelion and Tomino throughout Victory Gundam.

    Not to mention rumors that Lacus is Morosawa's Self-Insert/Mary Sue/Author Avatar, and she was rumored to have cosplayed as Lacus whenever she appears at various anime conventions in Japan.

    so is been a long time.... ppl have been holding off for a long time for the end to GS and GSD. i think its about time they move on from his wife being ill and make the movie. i mean u can only hold off fans for so long before they just get sick of it. i want the end to it! i want to know what happens with caga/athru! at this point they can keep kira out of it with lacus ( thinks that's right) they tend 2 over run the others in GSD. so pop them in and right back out if need be but for god sake give ppl the movie we have been holding off for years! give us a wrap up would u. i am sry ur wife is sick but come one if u can make gundam 00 thin wheres the rest of seed.

    Maybe Morosawa and Fukuda could add a character in the movie who's related to Fllay and her dad and wants to avenge their deaths.

    Furthermore, I like seed better anyway, I find it more emotionally satisphying. But I do love 00 as well, and look forward to the dubbing of its second season. G 00 is REALLY tragic though... WHY DOES LOCK-ON HAVE TO DIE!?
    bah.....

    UGH.

    Even if the movie was made, it'll just be a big ass clip show with maybe five minutes of original story, given the fact that that was exactly what most of Destiny was.

    Japan, let the fucking travesty die.

    Well, unlike most of the people here (and everywhere else on the internet it seems), I rather enjoyed SEED and Destiny (all of it). Destiny was the series that made me obsessed with the Gundam franchise, so I will definetely be looking forward to seeing a movie.

    I am a Gundam fan as a whole. I own all the series released here in the USA. Most people worship Gundam Wing because it was the first to introduce them to Gundam, as I was. However after stepping back and watching them over, Gundam Wing suffered from a lot of poor animation. Over all the series was enjoyable but not the best, especially considering how over powered the Gundam were.

    Now if you apply that to Seed. Seed and Destiny had goods and bads. Seed and Destiny had a good animation quality. And could have been far better. Especially Destiny. However over use of clip shows (no less back to back clip shows) and an overly emotional protaganist in Shin and Kira (I am a Kira fan), it was hard to connect to the story aside from Atharun.

    All in all i really did enjoy Seed and Destiny however they could have been far better.

    agreed,
    hell it's not like gundam shows are known to be innovative in their major plot
    it's all about the raw action and the emotions that come with it

    I loved every episode of both SEED and SEED Destiny

    Honestly, I LOVE Seed and Seed Destiny. I watched Gundam series before them, and I enjoyed them as much as I did the Seed ones.

    I'd like a movie that continues and gives a correct ending for these series.

    (Yeah, Shinn still gets on my nerves, though...)

    SEED and SEED Destiny certainly does have a lot of fans in Japan at least - Destiny is the best selling anime TV series on DVD in history, if memory serves.

    Damn, shitty series won't die. The only thing I liked about the Seed series was the Astray storyline, too bad that won't go anywhere. Oh and I also hate them for giving hacks like Hirai Hirashi jobs.

    ....you know, I can see what youre saying. But at the same time, it doesnt make sense. If alot of people like it, then there has to be a pretty good reason as to why, you know? In another words, it has to have atleast some kind of quality for the masses to enjoy.

    With the Gundam 30th Anniversary confirmed to be a Universal Century based series i doubt very seriously that a Seed movie is immanent. Also take into account that Morosawa was not even part of the production team for Gundam Seed Stargazer. i doubt Morosawa will be involved with a Seed Movie if there is one due to the trouble and money Sunrise had to waist because of her.
