I don't think that the death rate is that high. While the virus itself is serious, it isn't automatically a death sentence either. There have been a lot of people who have recovered from it. It can be dangerous and one reason why people are trying to shelter in place is because of how contagious it is. That's a huge issue because people can pass it along without knowing that they have it and it can spread extremely fast, which can lead to people in the high risk category getting it too.Seriously. At this rate, I won't be surprised if at least half the world gets infected by the Coronavirus before this year is up. If that happens, I also won't be surprised if half of those people die (25% of the world's population; yikes). I hope it doesn't come to that. This virus could very easily wipe out most of the human race.
Yeah, people aren't going to be comfortable going to movie theaters for quite awhile. I'm sure that a lot of parents would be worried about going there with their kids too. We definitely have more information about the new movie by now. I think that we usually get some new trailers and maybe a second poster by around April or May. I'm sure that they didn't want to risk spending time and money on promoting a movie that may not end up releasing in July.I still wouldn't count on the movie being released as scheduled even if movie theaters reopen by then. Not only are you going to have lots of people still hesitant to go, which could seriously hurt revenue, but I don't think they've been able to promote the movie the way they'd like to either with everything going on. I believe we usually know a lot more about the movie than we do right now, which is obviously understandable with everything going on, but they might want more time to be able to advertise the movie.
I know it's a Pokemon film, so they can kind of release it just on that merit alone, but whether they want to or not and if they think it could still have an effect on how well the movie ends up doing is a different story.
There is no way a movie featuring a brand new Pokemon is going to be canceled. They've already put in a lot of money into developing the movie and they'd want to use it as a means to promote Zarude whenever that becomes available. It's almost certain to be postponed, but I can't really see how or why they'd flat out cancel the movie.To be completely honest I have no interest in this movie so I don't mind if it gets postponed and even canceled even if the latter is extremely unlikely. The recent movies have all sucked as far as I'm concerned so maybe that's affected my negative outlook. By the way why was the thread title changed from Coco to Koko again?
Corona has caused humanity to do many things that have either never been done or have been done very rarely.Welp, it’s finally happened.
Not surprised and all considering the scenario but it’s still pretty big knowing this is the first time a Pokémon movie will not see a release in July.
I don't think that it's necessarily a bad sign for the anime's. I imagine the main reason why the movie has been delayed is just because theaters aren't a safe place right now. They've probably already done the recording and maybe finished the animation, but it doesn't really matter when theaters are going to be closed and/or people are going to be nervous about going to them with their families for the foreseeable future. Plus, it was all but certain that the movie would have to be delayed at this point anyway. I don't know when the anime can return, but they may need to figure out a way to basically do all of the work remotely since Japan might be in a state of emergency for quite some time.I hope the movie's postponement isn't a bad sign for the anime's return. Hopefully everyone has been staying safe and will remain safe.
I don't think the movie's postponement is indicative of when the anime will return. The big problem with releasing the movie is the possibility of movie theaters still being closed in July, or being open and people being too nervous to go. They're not going to want to release a feature film and lose money on it. The anime is more because of the inability to produce right now...that should return before large gathering places like movie theaters will (when it is safe to do so, of course, though that might still take quite a while.)I hope the movie's postponement isn't a bad sign for the anime's return. Hopefully everyone has been staying safe and will remain safe.
I don't know if they'll do that. I think that they develop the movies a year in advance, so I would assume that at least some production for next year's movie already started before Japan declared a state of emergency. Waiting until next year to release the movie would throw that production off track and it would potentially make it longer to promote Zarude.What if it gets delayed to July 2021
