|Cloverway talks Sailor Stars (July 13th, 2002)|
Going through sites before work a couple days ago, I found that the Sailor Senshi Page had recieved and posted an e-mail recieved from Cloverway regarding Sailor Stars. Here is the letter as posted on the SSP:
Of our consideration:
I reviewed your web page after receiving an e-mail from a fan. I can relate to NOT WANTING to receive any more e-mails asking about the dubbing of SailorMoon SailorStars; I get those abundantly.
I would really appreciated if you can paste this information on your page regarding the dubbing of the series; hopefully the fans will stop asking about it for a while and keep their fingers crossed:
We have been receiving calls from fans and fan clubs inquiring about the status of Sailor Moon Stars. To this date, the situation remains the same, Until the author, publisher, and producer company reach an agreement, we cannot proceed with the dubbing of the series. We are hoping that the negotiations are favorable so that we can launch Sailor Moon Stars in the United States.
This is a very long and complicated process and has been going on for almost two years now; please bear with us. We assure you that the company that we represent (Toei Animation) is doing everything possible to reach a favorable decision and be able to license Sailor Moon Stars in all pending territories all over the world.
We thank you and all the fans for your patience and understanding.
FYI, I am attaching a file (with very low resolution images, sorry, I'm unauthorized to send high-res) created for presentation purposes. I know that you?re aware of all this information but consider it like a synopsis of the SailorMoon Stars. Comment: The names are tentative and would probably change. e.g. Mini Mini Moon is not an attractive name for the character.
Thank you for your kind attention,
While this pretty much says that nothing has changed in the past couple years, it at least shows something is going on and that Stars is in the process of being liscensed for North America. This could be a sign of things to come, but let's not jump to conclusions by saying it will be dubbed or anything. It's being worked on in the legal world, all we can do is sit back and wait for something to happen. Please don't go e-mailing Cloverway or anyone else trying to find out info on it, nothing has happened, they're waiting for things to happen, and the fact they even made this e-mail is proof that they will be sure to let people know what's going on when something happens. And to save me a lot of e-mails, this is the e-mail as it appeared on the SSP, the attatched file mentioned was never posted, so please don't ask me about it. This letter was also posted with permission, while for other news posts I only ask for credit and a link, please do not take this letter for use for your own site, e-mail the SSP for permission, thank you.
