The year is 2314 AD, two years after Celestial Being's last great battle and the world faces a new crisis. A derelict Jupiter exploration ship, abandoned 130 years ago, has left its orbit and is approaching Earth. The ESF has also begun to exploit the power of Innovators through Descartes Shaman. The world's exposure to GN Particles has resulted in many people awakening as True Innovators. Realizing the military benefits of such individuals, the Earth Sphere Federation has begun to research Innovation and exploit the emerging Innovators' abilities. As Celestial Being and its Gundam Meisters begin their final mission to save humanity from an unimaginable threat, the Extraterrestrial Living-metal Shape-shifters (ELS), Gundam Meister Setsuna F. Seiei is about to discover the true purpose of his evolution as an Innovator and the nature of the "dialogues" for which Aeolia Schenberg's plan had prepared the human race.

This movie felt mostly like a pointless cash-grab by Sunrise to milk more money off fans of Gundam 00. While sporting better visuals and animation over the TV anime, the enemy threat is as shallow as it comes with a liquid-metal alien lifeform that assimilates all machines and life-forms it comes into physical contact with. While the first instance within the Gundam franchise to feature an alien being, it's single-minded actions and lack of proper means to communicate made one wonder what the point was of attempting to resonate Gundam's themes with it. The plot it attempts to develop with it feels largely worthless as it contributes little to developing any plot elements or character development within the 00 continuity of the Gundam franchise, which says something with how much of a mess Gundam 00's second season was. Just skip this film all together since its existence within 00 is largely worthless in the grand scheme of things.
