US Premiere of Gundam 00 Movie in October

How the hell I miss this one is beyond me…

Copypasta straight from the Bandai Entertainment website:

July 31, 2010 (Cypress, CA) – Sunrise announced today that the North America premiere of the movie, Mobile Suit Gundam 00: A wakening of the Trailblazer, will take place at New York Anime Festival/New York Comic Con on Sunday, October 10, 2:00-4:00pm. The movie will be subtitled in English with Japanese audio.

This movie is a two hour all original sequel to the television series Mobile Suit Gundam 00, which had two seasons and ran for 50 episodes.  The movie will premiere in Japan on September 18th and will be released in some other Asian Countries this fall.

The series story was set at the dawn of the 24th century and the world was still torn by conflict, driven by the rivalry between three great superpower blocs. Then the private armed organization called Celestial Being appeared, announcing its intention to rid the world of war and conflict.

In the movie, the year is 2314 AD, two years after Celestial Being’s last great battle, and the world faces a new crisis. A derelict Jupiter exploration ship, abandoned 130 years ago, has left its orbit and is approaching Earth. As Celestial Being and its Gundam Meisters begin their final mission to save humanity from an unimaginable threat, Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei is about to discover the true purpose of his evolution as an Innovator, and the nature of the “dialogues” for which legendary scientist Aeolia Schenberg’s plan has been preparing the human race.

 The all original feature is directed by Seiji Mizushima, director of the television series.

The film will premiere at the New York Anime Festival on Sunday, October 10.

      Robert Napton of Bandai Entertainment confirmed that the movie was licienced for distribtuion. No details on when it will be released but given on how quick it was (Four weeks), it’s a good bet that we’ll get it stateside as nearly as quickly as the Japanese Home Video edition.
