As revealed during Bandai Namco Filmworks’ Sakura-Con 2024 panel, Mobile Suit Gundam SEED FREEDOM officially has dates for its North American theatrical run. The feature will be heading to around 800 theaters across the United States and Canada via Fathom Events on May 7 (Japanese with English subtitles) in both countries and May 8 (English dub) in U.S. cinemas.

Tickets go on sale April 5, which is also when you’ll find out more info, including participating theaters. For now, you can see the first six minutes of the film in Japanese and English below.



Gundam SEED FREEDOM continues the story of the second TV anime, Gundam Seed Destiny, with Mitsuo Fukuda directing once again alongside other returning staff members. When it opened in Japan it ended up breaking box office records for the Gundam series.

Here’s how Gundam.info describes the story of Gundam SEED FREEDOM:

C.E. (Cosmic Era). An era in which there are human beings called Coordinators, born with superior physical and mental abilities thanks to genetic modification, and humans called Naturals who are born naturally. With their respective existence at stake, the ideological clash between Coordinators and Naturals escalated into war using armed force.

Along the way, the Destiny Plan was proposed, which would forcibly assign a role to each individual and create a world free of competition. But amid the fighting, this Destiny Plan was rejected in order to protect humanity’s aspirations and future freedom.
