Suit Up: A Live-Action Gundam Movie Is Heading to Netflix!

This will be larger than life.

Netflix isn’t new to the Gundam anime franchise as it already features at least two Gundam series. Now, Netflix is taking it up a notch with a live-action Gundam movie produced by Legendary Pictures.

The Gundam movie details so far

The movie will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who is best known for his work on Kong: Skull Island, while Brian K. Vaughan will be the executive producer. As of now, there’s no news about casting or the plot. So, that also means we can’t count on any Gundam anime story arcs explored in the movie just yet. 

What we can count on though is epic and adrenaline-pumping Gundam fights. After all, Legendary Pictures has already produced movies with giant mecha battles such as Pacific Rim and King Kong (Monsterverse)

It seems that Netflix has also taken to streaming anime series by the anime studio Sunrise, which is the Japanese studio behind Gundam. Aside from the giant armoured robot series, Netflix is also working on a live-action series for Cowboy Bebop. For us ’90s kids, these soon-to-be-released live-action Sunrise anime have their work cut out for them. Here’s to hoping they’ll reach our expectations!
