The year is 2314 AD, two years after Celestial Being's last great battle and the world faces a new crisis. A derelict Jupiter exploration ship, abandoned 130 years ago, has left its orbit and is approaching Earth. The ESF has also begun to exploit the power of Innovators through Descartes Shaman. The world's exposure to GN Particles has resulted in many people awakening as True Innovators. Realizing the military benefits of such individuals, the Earth Sphere Federation has begun to research Innovation and exploit the emerging Innovators' abilities. As Celestial Being and its Gundam Meisters begin their final mission to save humanity from an unimaginable threat, the Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifters (ELS), Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei is about to discover the true purpose of his evolution as an Innovator and the nature of the "dialogues" for which Aeolia Schenberg's plan had prepared the human race.

First original Gundam theatrical feature in almost two decades. The directorial talent behind Fullmetal Alchemist. The musical scoring of Kenji Kawai. The inclusion of aliens for the first time in the franchise's thirty year history. The namesake of a cultural phenomenon. To the cynical mind, Awakening of the Trailblazer could have almost instantly been dismissed as a failure due to the surrounding hype, the general attitude of indifference many fans have adopted thanks to Sunrise's shaky track record, and just the general air of disapproval by the die-hard Universal Century fans arguing that Gundam has just 'lost' its way.

And maybe some of it is true, read more

When Gundam 00 finished its broadcast, I was quite excited to hear that there was going to be a film sequel to resolve the last part of Aeolia's plan mentioned in the TV series and that it would be the first Gundam iteration in the 30 years of its existence that would actually have aliens included in the story.

A Wakening of the Trailblazer takes place 2 years after the end of season 2 where peace is slowly starting to come true with the A-Laws disbanded, but with the arrival of a bizarre alien life form called the ELS from a space ship sent to Jupiter read more

Like alot of other people who saw and enjoyed the TV Series, I was hyped up for this film. Although I did keep a few lingering doubts in my mind to make sure that the hype didn't ruin the film for me. Obviously being a movie, certain elements have to be condensed in order to function, so the question is: does Awakening of the Trailblazer serve as a fitting conclusion to Gundam 00? Well...Yes and no. Let's go over the main aspects of the story. This is the first entry in the franchise to introduce aliens, which is of course one of the film's biggest read more

This is my first review on an anime and I hope to be as helpful as possible!

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 The Movie: A Wakening of the Trailblazer is the sequel to the 2nd season of the series. It forms a "trilogy" if I can put it like that. I enjoyed the 2 seasons of Mobile Suit Gundam 00 a lot and loved the story, art and characters. I kind of prefer to believe the anime should have ended at the 2nd season. The movie adds a whole new concept to the Gundam Universe and it might seem "alien" to the loyal Gundam fans. (Excuse the read more

Anime: Eureka Seven
Facepalming the end of the Gundam Movie? It however even pales in comparison to the end of Eureka 7.

Aside from that both are mecha, include alien forms and a central topic is "understanding each other".

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
Both films were released theatrically as well as providing insight, character interactions, action packed mecha, and humanity peace.

Anime: Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Movie
Both movies take place after the main storyline and their plots are similar in a way where a new enemy emerges as well as where they show the preview at the end of the final episode.

Anime: Macross F
This anime is very much like Gundam-00 The movie, Both has aliens species invading at first and have became sworn enemies since then because of some misunderstanding between the two races. After some battles both sides enemies shared the same thoughts and understood each other, and the story ends with everyone live happily ever after. Great anime and movie.

Anime: Top wo Nerae! Gunbuster
both Gundam 00 The Movie and Gunbuster has similar plot
aliens, endless number of sharp-shaped aliens, earth army vs aliens in space
and somehow have a similar ending

Anime: Soukyuu no Fafner: Dead Aggressor
Alien invasion. Alien assimilating with mankind. Communication.

Fafner much better in terms of story and soundtracks. 00 better in terms of actions and animation.
