25th Animation Division Jury Selections
Mobile Suit GUNDAM Hathaway
Animated feature film
A film adaptation of TOMINO Yoshiyuki’s novel of the same title, some 30 years after its publication. Set 12 years after the animation movie Kido Senshi Gandamu: Gyakushu no Sha (Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack, 1988), the film depicts the struggles of Hathaway NOA, the son of Amuro RAY’s comrade-in-arms, Bright NOA. Realism achieved in the animation and the sound design tailored for screening in Dolby Cinema captured much attention.
