Preview screening will be held in Fukuoka on August 24, 2019
The official website for Sunrise's 2014-2015 TV anime Gundam Reconguista in G announced today that the first part of its five-part compilation film project, titled "Ike! Core Fighter (Go! Core Fighter)," is set to be released in Japan this fall. The release of the five films was revealed as a part of the Gundam franchise's 40th anniversary project early this month.
The 96-minute "Ike! Core Fighter" was already screened at the 20th Japan Expo in Paris, France, on July 5, 2019. And its first preview screening is scheduled to be held at Fukuoka Art Museum in Fukuoka Prefecture on August 24, as a special program in the ongoing "The World of Tomino Yoshiyuki: A Retrospective of Legendary Anime Director" exhibition. Then it will be also screened at the 41st Pia Film Festival to be held between September 7 and 17, as one of its official invitation films.
Gundam Reconguista in G was written/directed by Yoshiyuki Tomino, one of the original creators of the first Mobile Suit Gundam TV series in 1979-1980, and aired for 26 episodes from October 2014 to March 2015. The compilation films will include newly-animated footage.
