For the first time in nearly a decade, Mobile Suit Gundam is coming to theaters throughout the United States. Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative) debuts its English dub as part of a one-night event on Tuesday, February 19 at 7:00pm local time, and tickets are now available for the nationwide screenings.

Around 450 movie theaters are getting in on the action. You can see a full list on Fathom Events’ official website. Fans can also look forward to an exclusive peek behind the scenes, and the first 50 attendees at each cinema will receive a double-sided poster while supplies last.

The latest chapter of the Universal Century saga is directed by Toshikazu Yoshizawa and written by Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC).

Extended trailer:

If you’re hungry for way more footage, Gundam.info started streaming the first 23 minutes of the dub for a limited time.


The story begins in U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.

The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten. 

However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix… named “Phenex.”
