There isn't much information about the movie itself but it's coming. The crew of the Daiku Maryu is going to get another run but on the big screen.

GAI GAI GAI Daiku Maryu GaiKing!

I don't know the first thing about Gaiking other than that it exists, but that sounds awesome.

One day after the announcement here is a picture of the logo and the CG GaiKing itself. It also has info about who's going to do these nifty CG effects.

And there was much rejoicing.

Seriously, I just finished watching Legend of Daiku-Maryu last week. I loved it, and this is shaping up to be just as sweet!

Whoa, Gaiking is piloted by Samus Aran. Wait, what? Which series is this movie based on or is it it's own thing?

It's almost certainly it's own thing, I'd wager. There's a bit of rumour mill going around that the protag is Daiya and Ruru's adopted daughter, but if something with this movie's aesthetic is a sequel to LoDM I will cry tears of blood.

I don't care how much this does or doesn't follow the plot of any of the TV shows that I haven't seen, that trailer was awesome.

I liked the "Oh, it's a girl!" moment. The rest of it wasn't bad but it wasn't anything that made me want to watch it

Spoilers, you jerk! :evil:

Honestly, the trailer was kind of boring. I'll reserve judgment till the damn thing actually comes out.

I actually don't like Gaiking THAT much, since I don't really like his design that much. I'm more of a Daimos kinda guy. But a movie... Interesting.

And here I thought it was going to be a GaoGaiGar movie. Ah well.

and Neo Gaiking

It look good but they already said this isn`t the finished product the end result will look way better. And its probably A.U

What makes this exciting is that they promised to work on other Super Robots too based on some old toy line (Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, Koutetsu Jeeg, Raideen, Grendizer ect,)

Thanks, Captain Obvious. Yes, obviously it's fucking based on Gaiking. What I'm asking is if the plot will be related in any way to the original series or the one we subbed

I'm assuming it's its own entity, like the Transformers or GI Joe movies. That would make the most sense to me.
