Maybe I shouldn't say 'all', but you may be aware that
the movie trilogy was done with some care,
particularly the animations which has substantial
updates plus several brand new animations. My thought
is that if Sunrise put this much effort on
re-animation alone, they wouldn't mind spending some
more to redo the voice acting. Since there are quite a
lot of new scenes there for the characters, so a
completely new voice acting job is not out of

Editing the original voice tapes is one of the
possible differences, but I paid some attention over
Amuro and Char's speech in the movies. They seems to
sound very casual unlike what I heard on TV series,
which they sound serious and deliver a sense of
urgency. I also notice a change of pitch in the
movies, which maybe due to the editing as you and I
suspect, but this could also due to a new voice
acting. Confusing :)

Anyway, I prefer what I hear from 0079 TV series.
These are the stuff in which a legend is made of.
