GUNDAM Live-Action Feature In The Works From Legendary Pictures And Sunrise

Fans have been hoping to see a live-action take on the popular Gundam anime series for many years, & it's just been announced at Anime Expo that a feature adaptation is in the works at Legendary Pictures.

Legendary already has the Pacific Rim movies, but it seems the studio fancies taking a crack at the classic Mecha anime series that directly inspired those giant robot/monster mashes.

It was announced today at Anime Expo 2018 that Legendary will partner with Sunrise to produce a live-action adaptation of Gundam, which is generally credited with popularizing the giant robot genre all the way back in 1979.

There doesn't appear to be any other details on the project at this time, but for those unfamiliar with this property, the official press release contains a handy synopsis which you can check out below.


The original Gundam series is set in the Universal Century, an era in which humanity's growing population has led people to emigrate to space colonies. Eventually, the people living in the colonies seek their autonomy, and launch a war of independence against the people living on Earth. Through the tragedies and discord arising from this human conflict, not only the maturation of the main character, but also the intentions of enemies and the surrounding people are sensitively depicted. The battles in the story, in which the characters pilot robots known as mobile suits, are wildly popular.
