    Disney running out of princesses to capitalize on.

    If it's just streaming rights, that's fine but it's not making me subscribe to disney+. Some assumptions are it will end up on Hulu. That's fine also. As long as that's how far it goes, I'm not going to fuss about it.

    Physical media distribution is good too. As long as it's not creative input, all is well.

    Completely baseless, wishful, no-evidence, wild fantasizing from me: I think it would be REALLY AWESOME if A LOT OF PEOPLE watch Macross on Disney+. And then Disney decides that it really LIKES Macross. And then Disney does what Disney always does and aggressively acquires EVERYTHING tangentially related to Macross. Then, Disney throws a whole bunch of money at Harmony Gold (or sues them) so that Disney has the rights to distribute SDF:M and DYRL, and we can FINALLY see mainstream release of SDF:M and DYRL fiction and toys in USA for the forever.

    I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY WANT THIS TO HAPPEN.

    I mean, COME ON, this is DISNEY! The company that sued the parents of a dead child because the tombstone had Spider-Man on it! The company that sued a daycare because the walls had paintings of Disney characters! The company that singlehandedly destroyed Wei-Jiang, which led to Black Apple put in prison! Disney might be the ONLY company evil, powerful, and wealthy enough to liberate Macross from Harmony Gold!

    Yeah....No...I really hope Disney doesn't get a hold of this. I really really really do not want Disney to get a hold of this...at all.

    Evil cannot be destroyed by something more evil. One thing I don't want to see is Basara turned into a Disney princess even if I don't like Macross 7.

    Yea, you think HG markup on Macross toys is high, Disney markup might make HG look cheap.

    It's not just that...but the "treatment" it'd get from Disney...which is just a flat out heck no from me. If Disney got a hold of it? I'd be willing to walk away from Macross the very moment the news came out.

    LMAO the only benefit would be an openness to licensing out toys left and right but the cost would likely be higher than any current item … gotta fund Macross on ice ya know

    Luckily, I don't think the 25 Macross fans in the world will be enough for Disney to throw millions of dollars into it.

    One of those ILY 4ever dolls based on Minmay would be pretty cool though.

    Yeah I'm sure folks would be dying to line up for that :lol  Though that makes me think how they're going to do the SDF/Valk transformations while they're skating...

    Nor would they probably want to risk losing money on it either.

    Watch as Bob Iger is a huge Macross fan and our worst fears come true. Then again like @Lord Of Tetris wishes, we could finally watch the original series and DYRL in the US. :eek: 

    Then again.... seeing Walkure on stage with Cinderella is a disturbing thought.

    They will be on stage, in multiple concerts singing the best Disney hits spanning decades. You won't hear them singing anything they did in their original shows :lol 

    Imagine the total confusion all un-contacted Zentraedi would feel.

    Imagine the total confusion all existing Zentraedi living among them would feel.

    It will become....a sci-fi parody.

    As much as I would love to see Harmony Gold get bitch-slapped and lose their ridiculous stranglehold on the license, Disney is not the right company to do it. Especially not current Disney. Plus, if the rumours of their finances are true, they no longer have the capital to aggressively acquire properties.
