The Robotech animated series is coming to Sony's streaming service, Crackle.

All 85 of the half-four episodes in addition to the 88-minute animated feature will be available on Crackle starting May 15th.

Watch the Robotech trailer below.

A live-action Robotech movie is said to be in the works as well directed by James Wan.



Stream the complete “Robotech” series, plus the full-length feature film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, starting Sunday May 15th on Crackle Anime!

Originally released in 1985, “Robotech” is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic in which the human race finds itself on the brink of annihilation and under attack by a fleet of gigantic alien warships capable of destroying the Earth in a split second. Their only hope for survival lies within the secrets of Robotechnology, which allows humans to develop powerful transforming robotic systems and interstellar spacecraft. The critically-acclaimed U.S. TV series follows three generations of heroic characters who adapt this robotic technology from a crashed alien starship to defend against numerous alien invasions.

2016 is also the 10th anniversary of the animated film Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles, which was released in 2006 and features the voices of Richard Epcar (“Ghost in the Shell,” Mortal Kombat X), Eddie Frierson (FROZEN, MONEYBALL) and Mark Hamill (STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII). The premise continues where the television series left off: In the year 2044 AD, the human race has reached out to the stars through the miracle of Robotechnology, but not without bringing intergalactic war upon the Earth itself.
