Gundam SEED goes theatrical?
Rumors on 2ch said to be from the Sony Music Anime Fes' 06 are that it was announced that there'll be a Gundam SEED movie.
It is known, through a radio commercial for this month's Newtype, that the magazine has "big Gundam SEED news" though early issues don't appear to have come out yet to confirm what exactly that news is.
Edit: Sunrise confirms the rumors, stating this will be the first completely original Gundam feature film since Gundam F91 came out 15 years ago. Mitsuo Fukuda will be the director.
I have litle hope for the SEED universe as is, as it has been flushed down the drain by the stinker that was SEED Destiny. Hopefully, this movie can redeem the SEED franchise. Fukuda has shown that he can do a good show, provided he works at his own pace. With a movie, he has no such constraints, and so I will be optiistic about this movie.
