Not much is known about the third film, but the official website for the film has the following synopsis:
Set in the ‘Regild Century (R.C.),’ which can be called the post-space century, ‘G no Reconguista’ was directed and written by Yoshiyuki Tomino, the original creator of Gundam. After more than five years, that work has been re-edited into a new theatrical version. Following on the heels of Part 1 and Part 2, which were screened in November 2019 and February 2020, Part 3 features even more new cuts, bringing the film back to life as a hyperactive work. Here is the story of young people who vividly live in the present age!
The official website for the movie has also been updated with a short synopsis of the film which reads:
Suddenly, an Amerian space ship in St. Porto was attacked. This was because the space colony nation of Towasanga had launched the ‘Reconguista’ operation, aiming to return to Earth. Four forces from inside and outside of Earth gather in St. Porto, each claiming their rights and battling with each other, but Aida decides to seek the truth and go to Towasanga with Bellri and her friends. Then, on the far side of the moon, a shocking truth is revealed to Berli and Aida at Towasanga…
Just what exactly will take place in Gekijoban Gundam G no Reconguista III: Uchuu kara no Isan? I guess we’re going to have to wait until the movie releases on 22 July 2021 to find out!
