Straight from Kevin McKeever on Chris Meadows' Space Station Liberty: "Shadow Rising is NOT canceled and is NOT postponed!"

This is definitely the news dedicated fans were waiting for, relief for much of the fans. The context of Kevin's "hiatus" statement was simply misinterpreted. The "hiatus" statement did not mean that the show was put on hold indefinitely, but that the animated feature was under development.

Many thanks to Chris Meadows and his Space Station Liberty podcast for hosting Kevin McKeever and Tommy Yune to clear this up.

Are you ticked off about the new developments concerning the "hiatus" of Shadow Rising because Warner Brothers wants exclusive production of the Robotech Live-Action Movie? Well guess what? Tune in to Chris Meadows' Space Station Liberty podcast where he will interview Tommy Yune and Kevin McKeever on the subject. Lets see if we get some answers on this heated topic.

The scheduled interview will take place Thursday, June 5, 2008 at 10:00 PM EDT. - to listen or talk - how to dial in

Thanks to Fremen72 for posting this on the Official Robotech Website Forum.


According to Xenophon over at the Official Robotech Forums. Kevin McKeever stated at A-Kon in Dallas that "absolutely nothing has happened" with the movie other than WB and Tobey MacGuire's production company having acquired the rights.

First off RELAX, before you shrug your shoulders in bitter disappointment and switch to flashbacks of nothingness of some 20 odd years, just bear with us a moment as we dissect this with caution.

Not the exactly the news fans craving for more Robotech wanted to hear, but truth is truth and we're in the need to know so here it is.

Harmony Gold will postpone the next Robotech animated feature Shadow Chronicles: Shadow Rising until further development on the Robotech Live Action Film. Apparently Warner Brothers has enough pull to shoot down Tommy Yune's statement on the Space Station Liberty podcast about the Robotech Live-Action Movie not having an effect on continuing production of the animated series.

This stems from Xenophon's post on the Official Robotech Forums we discussed in our previous article. For now the fact is that Shadow Chronicles: Shadow Rising has been postponed until the Robotech Live-Action Movie gets in gear to Warner Brother's satisfaction. On the brighter side, a possible animation series might come out of the RLAM just like the Transformers did and hopefully HG is pulling resources to work closely on the RLAM.
