Disney is continuing to grow its international content library with more Japanese anime. It’s been announced that the popular Japanese anime franchise Macross will be coming to Disney+ under the “Star” brand around the world later this year. As with most international Star content, I’d expect it to be released on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States.

The “Macross” franchise was created by Studio Nue and Artland in 1982. It is about an alien spaceship that crashes lands on Earth, and its secrets lead to a desperate war against an alien enemy sent to retrieve the ship.

Eighteen titles will be released later this year on Disney+ around the world, all released together at once. Disney+ will be the only streaming platform with every “Macross” title in one place.

The “Macross” titles coming to Disney+ include:

• Super Dimension Fortress Macross Flash Back 2012
• Super Dimension Fortress Macross II -Lovers Again-
• Macross Plus
• Macross Plus Movie Edition
• Macross 7

Big West Representative Director Onishi Kamon said in a statement (translated)

In 2021, it became possible to deliver Macross to the world.  And now, with a wonderful partner called Disney Plus, the latest work from “Super Space-Time Fortress Macross Flash Back 2012” “Macross the Movie Δ Absolute LIVE!!!!!!” I am very happy to be able to deliver all the works to everyone around the world.

Disney Plus said that it wanted to distribute all the works at once. It was also our dream.  The “Macross” series can be enjoyed in one work, but it is a series that you can enjoy more if you know the connection with each work. Please enjoy the greatest chance to know the “Macross” world provided by Disney Plus.

It was also revealed that the Disney+ booth at the AnimeJapan 2024 event will feature “Macross, with a special presentation on the stage on Sunday, 23rd March 2024, which will include some special guests, including Yoshiki Fukuyama, Ai Nakajima, Minori Suzuki.
