We learned back in November 2018 that Sunrise has a lot of plans in store for the 40th-anniversary of Gundam. One of those plans was for a compilation film being produced for the Gundam Reconguista in G project which is being done as a five-film run. With the second film coming up at the end of this month on March 27th, 2020 with English subtitles, we now have the packaging spread for the set – mostly. The main editions are:

Extras for the limited edition, which are not subtitled, include 2 Short Interview Clips with General Director Tomino, Documentary Video on Yoshiyuki Tomino Part 1, 3 “Mobile Suit School” Short Videos.
Check out our review of the North American release.
Plot concept: The new era begins!
The turbulent era known as the Universal Century has ended. Now, mankind looks towards prosperity and peace in the new era known as the Regild Century (R.C.). One of the most important resources in this era is the Capital Tower – a space elevator which towers over the land connecting Earth to space. Its purpose, to transport the Photon Batteries the Earth relies on for power. It is worshipped as a holy place.
Tasked with protecting the tower, one day on a practice mission, young Capital Guard cadet, Bellri Zenam is attacked by a high-performance G-Self Mobile Suit. Despite having never before encountered the G-Self, he feels a strange connection to it and its pilot, a space pirate called Aida Surugan.
Little does Bellri know that he is about to uncover truths that will shake the entire Regild Century.
