The OVAs were released in Japan in January 1997 to July 1997. Both versions were released in North America in 2000. There is also a manga version of the movie and a two-volume novelization. Also known as Mobile Suit Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz.

December 24, AC 196. Relena, now a Vice Minister for foreign affairs for the Earth Sphere Unified Nation (ESUN) government, is abducted during a diplomatic meeting on L3's X-18999 colony. To her surprise, the person responsible for her abduction is Mariamaia Khushrenada, Treize's daughter and the granddaughter of Dekim Barton, leader of the Barton Foundation. Heero and Duo, having learned of Relena's abduction, decide to investigate and send Quatre on a dangerous mission to recover the Gundams, while Trowa learns about Dekim's latest bid for power and decides to stop him. However, as he tries to kill Dekim, Trowa is stopped by Wufei, now a member of Dekim's forces.

As they arrive at X-18999, Heero and Duo are met by Wufei and Trowa, who attack them using their mobile suits. It soon becomes evident that Trowa infiltrated Mariemaia's army in order to allow his friends to infiltrate the colony. Meanwhile, Mariemaia declares war on the Earth Sphere Unified Nation and departs for Earth with Relena. While this happens, Zechs Merquise, now a ESUN agent, approaches the MO-II asteroid where Mariamaia's forces prepare themselves for the impending assault on Earth, and threatens to blow it to pieces with the Tallgeese III. Dekim responds with a threat that he will drop the MO-II to Earth unless Zechs retreats. Left without recourse, Zechs waits.
OVA 03: Return To Forever
Comparison Script | ReturnToForever.pdf | Screen Captures
Mariemaia's forces land in Brussels, the ESUN's capital, where Mariemaia and Dekim direct their army from the reinforced ESUN headquarters building with Relena as their captive. Meanwhile, Heero manages to convince Wufei to help overcome Mariemaia's forces, and arrives in Brussels, targeting the  Wing Zero's buster rifle on the headquarters building. Inside, Dekim tries to shoot Relena, but Mariemaia steps in front of Relena and is shot, while Dekim gets shot by one of his soldiers. Heero enters with his empty gun, symbolically fires at Mariemaia, then loses consciousness. Outside, peace has returned. Later, a convalescing Mariemaia visits Treize's grave, while the pilots destroy their Gundams and go back to the lives they led prior to the resurgence.


Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Movie

In 1998 the original three OVAs were later combined into a motion picture that borrowed the material from the three OVA episodes, re-ordered the segments, and added additional footage for a theatrical release in August of that year. The only material deleted from the OVA release is the ending segments from Return To Forever, which were changed and replaced with new ones. This movie version was also released in North America in 2000 along with the OVA version. Also known as New Mobile War Chronicle Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz Special Edition.

The Mariemaia Army's mobile suit forces land on Earth and seize the capital building of the Unified Nation. Quatre retrieves the four Gundams sent towards the sun and eventual destruction. The Gundam pilots, Zechs, and Noin battle the Mariemaia Army's forces in order to liberate the Unified Nation's capital.

The featured mecha is Wing Gundam Zero Custom in its incarnation from Endless Waltz (more specifically, the Master Grade Wing Gundam Zero model).

Gundam Evolve 7
Screen Captures
This episode begins with a Heero setting the timer on an explosive device, then changes to a scene with Doctor J, apparently imprisoned. He is seated at a desk and surrounded with his personal effects (a laptop computer, a moosehead on the wall, an ornate shelf clock). He talks to a visitor on the other side of the prison bars about recent history as the scene switches back to Heero to escaping the facility he has just sabotaged. The guards catch up to him, but he uses a nearby WF-02MD Virgo II to distract them and make his way into the hanger containing the Wing Zero Custom. Heero makes his way into the cockpit and uses Wing's twin buster rifle to create an escape route out of the base's hangar. He is pursued by Virgo IIs along the length of the facility, and the mobile suits chase each other and interweave amidst the framework of the satellite. After dealing with his pursuers, Heero attacks the cannon directly with his beam rifle as the bombs begin to go off. Doctor J finishes his narration, commenting to his visitor (now revealed as Relena Peacecraft) that he chose Heero's codename personally. As the satellite explodes, Heero flies into the camera, and the episode ends with 'MISSION COMPLETE' and a fade to back.
