The movies have some new footage, and some things were changed as far as order or equipment goes, but for the most part, the movies are an ok compilation of what happened in the original series, from what I understand. The original series will be coming to either video or to Cartoon Network, or maybe both next year I believe (or the following one, but I'm pretty sure it will be next year). It is also available in its original form in Japan and I believe there are also some Chinese subbed ones out there. But this will be the first time it appears in English I think.

Char is also in Zeta Gundam, the second Gundam tv series, and of course in the movie Char's Counterattack. A clone of him is also in the novel(s?) Gaia Gear.

Is Lalah Sun in the movies at all? She's on

She is in the third movie. As for how much time she gets, well to answer that might spoil part of what happens, so we shouldn't say too much.

Some of the best sites are Mark Simmon's Gundam Project site at

and Burke Rukes' Mecha Domain at

and also the Newtype Asylum at

There are several others out there too, but these are some of the best I've seen. And all were made by list members. Mark is also the one you will often see with articles published in magazines like Animerica and other anime mags.

Hope this helps.
