No sooner has the マクロスF / Macross F (or マクロスフロンティア / Macross Frontier) TV anime finished broadcasting than a movie is announced, and in a curious fashion at that.
In place of the next episode preview, a trailer for a different anime was aired, but in the brief interval between that and the main title, this momentarily appeared:
“Macross F Theatrical Version Underway”
More information may be announced at the Macross F Galaxy Final Tour in November. Releasing such fragmentary information is certainly a shrewd marketing tactic.
Since there is basically no other information of any reliable provenance whatsoever, allow me to regurgitate the wild speculations that have already surfaced, as a meagre substitute for any official information: there is much surprise at the announcement, and some doubts as to what form the title can take, given the ending of the series; some are concerned that it may take a summary compilation format rather than being a fully original title.
Without any information to the contrary however, we might just as well think it to be “final” conclusion, a gaiden extra, or a prequel or otherwise.
