G-Saviour is a Gundam television movie that uses live actors as opposed to animation. The actors are actually from Western countries. The Japanese language version of G-Saviour has Japanese dubbed into the movie. It was released in 2000 and intended, along with the ∀ Gundam television series, to be the centerpiece of Sunrise's "Big Bang Project," its 20th anniversary celebration for the popular Gundam metaseries.
Because of weak writing, wooden acting, mediocre mecha designs (the only notable one being the modular G-Saviour mobile suit) and poor continuity editing, G-Saviour is seen as the weakest Gundam offering to date, and is probably the final nail in the coffin of the Universal Century universe. Its year of Universal Century 0223 is the last known year of the Universal Century calendar and only a very few UC products have been made since then, primarily concentrating on the One Year War, or crossovers with popular alternate-universe series like Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed.
Gundam's original story co-creator Yoshiyuki Tomino, who was not involved in this production, voiced his disapproval of G-Saviour at Anime Expo New York 2002. Currently, both Bandai Visual in Japan and Bandai Entertainment in North America have discontinued G-Saviour's video and DVD production. Both companies have also taken the movie off their production catalogs and Bandai Entertainment has removed it from its GundamOfficial website.
