Re: Would Fanfilms Help B5 Make Some Kind of Return?

This looks so familiar that I'm almost certain I already answered it on Facebook. Regarding:

Quite literally *couldn't* happen. JMS doesn't own the B5 universe, WB does. But yeah, they're likely to step in.

WB and Paramount might as well be in different universes. Cawley got permission from Paramount to do the Phase 2 films. Given that JMS spent two years trying to buy the rights to B5 back from WB and failed, how likely do you think it is that they'd allow amateurs play in their sandbox? Answer, someplace between zero and zilch.
