“Get ready! Jordan Vogt-Roberts has been hired to direct and produce the first film version of ‘GUNDAM’ for Legendary and Netflix.”
In the original plot …
“In the war between the Earth Federation and Zeon, a young and inexperienced crew find themselves on a new spacecraft. Your best hope for surviving the conflict is Gundam, a giant humanoid robot and his talented teenage pilot.
Most Gundams are large, bipedal humanoid vehicles controlled from a cockpit by a human pilot. The cockpit is located on the torso, while the head acts as a camera to transmit the images to the pilot. Most of the series’ protagonists are Newtypes, genetically advanced humans adapted for space. New types have psychic abilities that allow them to feel in space and wear special movable clothes.
