At Anime Expo 2009, Kevin McKeever and Yune confirmed that "Robotech: Shadow Rising" has been put off indefinitely since Warner Bros. Pictures is now actively developing a big-budget Robotech live-action feature film. The first teaser trailer debuted at Anime Expo 2005. Co-director Tommy Yune said in a Newtype USA interview (republished on the official Robotech website) that the producers "consulted extensively" with Kenji Terada, a writer on Southern Cross and Mospeada (two of the three series adapted into the 1985 Robotech series). Many fans took that to mean the show had been postponed, when this was not the case. However, the Regis is skeptical of Ariel's words as she recognizes the Humans' new Shadow technology as something used by an ancient enemy of the Invid — the "Children of the Shadow", and remains determined to fight to the bitter end. Its fate is reportedly tied up with the schedule for the proposed live action movie on which no progress is known to have been made since its announcement in 2008. Revelation Films released the film in the United Kingdom on July 23, 2007. As he flies to the main REF base at Moon Base ALUCE (Advanced LUnar Chemical Engineering), he stumbles upon the just-arrived Icarus, and several unknown alien fighters that it accidentally brought with it. However, the Invid took all of the Protoculture with them and the REF only has enough power to last a little less than a year. Maia is also despondent as she states that most of her family was aboard the SDF-3, which is lost in space and may have been destroyed. It was released on DVD on February 6, 2007. And this is something that happened starting with Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, is that we have another major format change coming.

"[17] Later that same day, Yune mentioned that the sequel would be a feature movie. Louie Nichols, a scientist and veteran of the Second Robotech War, takes Janice to the science lab, and the two go over the test data to try and figure out what went wrong with the missile test. HG also explained that "hiatus" was an industry term meant to say that the animation was on hold while other parts of the production process caught up to it.

Lieutenant Commander Maia Sterling, a daughter of famed pilots Max Sterling and Miriya Parina Sterling and sister of Dana Sterling, has just been given command of the famed Skull Squadron. Scott informs Reinhardt that the attack is going poorly and that the REF ground forces have been forced to halt their advance while still out of range of Reflex Point.

Resistance forces on Earth, now aided by REF Commando units secretly dispatched in advance, are prepared to launch a simultaneous ground assault against the primary Invid hive at Reflex Point while the Invid's main forces engage the REF fleet. He helps the Icarus against the fighters, and then escorts it to ALUCE. The Regis transforms the Invid race into a massive phoenix of pure energy, in the same manner by which the Invid first arrived on Earth, and ascends into the sky. Several screenwriters, including Lawrence Kasdan, Alfred Gough, and Miles Millar, have also joined the project. An official trailer was later released on The Shadow Chronicles website during the NATPE conference, a broadcast industry trade show. The audience will need to be introduced to the universe of Robotech once again. This request, combined with the Regis' knowledge of the true power of the Neutron-S missiles, convinces the Regis that her race no longer belongs on Earth. Unable to restore communications, Grant is unable to warn the remaining ships of these findings, and they are left to fight a hopeless battle. 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. As Scott and Ariel share a kiss, Louie does his best to reassure a confused and uncertain Janice that "We will win. All Invid fighters capable of space combat are sent against the REF fleet and all remaining Invid ground forces are ordered to retreat to Reflex Point for a last stand.

Marcus, whose sister Marlene was killed in a previous REF assault on Earth two years earlier, harbors a deep hatred of the Invid. Vince orders the evacuation of all station personnel to the Ark Angel, and gives Louie one hour to get the ship's inactive reflex furnace online. Maia puts her head on Marcus' shoulder and the two look out a viewport as the Ark Angel flies over Earth's surface, which neither of them has seen until now. In this case, scripting, story boarding, and other parts of the production process are continuing. I can neither confirm nor deny the authenticity of this person's claims or his posts, but if it is true (and I am of the belief that it is) then this is the first look we, the fans, are getting of Shadow Rising.
