The first general screenings of Gundam: The Origin III Dawn of Rebellion, which took place back in May, announced that the current Char and Sayla arc of the anime film series will end with the upcoming fourth episode, Unmei no Zenya (Fateful Eve). Yesterday (July 28th), Gundam.info announced that this film will screen from November 19th in 15 selected cinemas across Japan, with advance pay streaming beginning simultaneously. A limited number of Collector’s Edition Blu-rays of the episode will also be sold for 10,000 yen each in participating cinemas.
The forthcoming Loum arc will cover the Battle of Loum and is planned for release next year. But before that, Unmei no Zenya will see the first ever mobile suit battle play out on the big screen, and feature Char’s “fateful encounter” with Lalah Sune, Amuro Ray, and “the legendary Dr. Minovsky”, alongside the development of the MS-04 and RX-78 Gundam. While voice actor Shuichi Ikeda is still in Keiko Han’s original role as Char, Saori Hayami (Oreimo‘s Ayase Aragaki) is newly cast as Lalah.
