Earlier today, it was announced that Hannover House had plans to make a Terminator 3D animated movie based on the Arnold Terminator. They were going to make it PG-13 and tone down the violence. Well, look like this is not going to be pretty, ’cause the company that owns the rights for the Terminator series, Pacificor, sent a cease and desist letter to Hannover House, ordering them to stop making the film since they don’t have the permission to.
Hannover isn’t backing down as they plan to make a big pay to Pacificor to score the rights to get the movie made.

Oh my, here comes another huge war that will escalate quickly! I don’t think Pacificor will let them make this movie no matter how much money Hannover offers them for the rights. This will be similar to “Warner Bros. vs. 20th Century Fox” with that “Watchmen” movie, but this Terminator legal war will be much worse.
Whose side am I on? Pacificor of course. I don’t want Terminator going animated. If you’re going to do an animated movie based on Arnold’s Terminator, they would have to get Arnold to do voice overs for the character.
I know the Terminator came in different forms of Entertainment. Terminator came in comic books, video games, TV shows (The Sarah Connor Chronicles), etc. You can do anything with the franchise. Hannover should have known better. They should have asked permission first. That’s the thing with Hollywood, egos and money. Nothing more.
