Kadokawa’s Gundam Ace magazine has revealed that a new Gundam SEED project is set to be announced on July 26. While it’s unclear what this mystery project could be, most Gundam fans, and myself, are expecting it to reveal images of the long-awaited Gundam SEED movie. But, it’s impossible to tell, as it could also be a manga reveal, which actually makes the most sense. Just recently, Gundam Ace revealed a new Crossbone Gundam manga and a Gundam 0080 manga as well. Therefore, it makes sense for the Gundam SEED project to follow suit, and reveal a manga.

Mitsuo Fukuda’s Working On An Anime Special for Freedom Gundam Statue Ceremony.
The Freedom Gundam statue can be found in Shanghai, China. It’s located in Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport Jinqiao. It stands tall, and looks fantastic, with Mitsuo Fukuda planning to release an anime special for the opening ceremony on May 28, 2021.

The Gundam SEED Movie Was Announced In 2006. Chiaki Morosawa Had Been Ill Since 2005. She Passed Away In 2016.
Mitsuo Fukuda and his wife Chiaki Morosawa created the Cosmic Era, and when a Gundam SEED movie was announced in 2006, everyone expected it to be released in 2007 or 2008. However, no film was released, and in 2008, Chiaki Morosawa revealed problems with her health, while confirming that the film’s plot was finished. Thus, fans around the world sent their prayers, and hoped for a speedy recovery. But it wasn’t long before the project was postponed indefinitely. In 2011, we were treated to the Gundam SEED HD remaster. While an enjoyable watch, it wasn’t the film we’d been looking forward for years.
In 2016, Chiaki Morosawa passed away from aortic dissection. It shocked the anime world, to say the least. In turn, we knew that the Gundam SEED movie would forever stay a mystery, as the person who wrote it is no longer with us today. At this point, in 2016, we had all accepted that the Gundam SEED film would never be released. I guess we were wrong?
