What is the plot of Gundam?
Little is known about Netflix Gundam film, as plot details have been largely non-existent.
All we know is that it is in the Gundam universe. The only slight indicator is a teaser image of the RX-78-2 robot model seen above, which was revealed in concept art.
However, there have been rumors. A listing from years ago said that the film would be made in a “drama abroad” style format and would take place during UC 0105, which in the anime is a year before the events of Gundam Hathaway Mobile Suit.
Vogt-Roberts teased in 2021 that the movie “may be an amalgamation of several of these different things, different timelines and whatnot.”
Whether or not that was true remains to be seen. After all, the Gundam The franchise spans four decades and is one of the most popular IPs in Japanese history.
The possibilities for the story are quite plentiful.
