Christian Tremblay has elected not to share additional visuals for SK Revolution publicly.
One of the agreed upon segments that was intended to be a final, third video to be recorded during the Los Angeles visit would have been solely regarding SWAT-Kats Revolution, to act as an official update to provide progress details, answer some important questions that had been collected over the course of the year, and to show some new visual materials that had been developed for this proposed show.
The topics, content and goals of this video segment had been discussed for approximately two months, via phone and email communication. Prior to setup/recording time, Christian Tremblay was met with beforehand. During conversation on-site, Christian said he would not go over the items listed below, instead choosing to focus on the 25th Anniversary Segment and Commemorative Print Giveaway segments.
The following questions were asked:
- Are there any visuals you can share for SK Revolution to give fans and Kickstarter backers an idea of what their contributions and support have made possible so far?
- What studios have you approached for SK Revolution?
- Has there been any specific reasons given by studios for why SWAT Kats was not picked up?
- There have been rumors that WB owns the rights to any new characters created for the 1993-1994 show. Does that mean characters such as Lt. Felina Feral or Callie Briggs would not be able to appear in Revolution?
- Will SWAT Kats revolution feature a new voice actor cast?
- Can you explain where the project is right now, with details about the process and why so many unexpected setbacks have occurred?
- How has the $140K investment from fans been used?
- One of the Kickstarter goal tiers was an animated trailer for SK Revolution. Has that been made?
- Are there finalized stories for SK Revolution, and if so, who has written them?
- Has work that Tremblay Bros. Studios has done on “THE KAMELEONS” caused SK Revolution to be put on delay? Or is it part of a strategy to "get your foot in the door" for SK Revolution?
- Because of obstacles related to WB concerning music rights and merchandise rights, what kind of changes do you think SK Revolution will have to embrace in order to be successful?
- It's been rumored that many of the themes and imagery associated with SWAT Kats has been considered too pro war or jingoistic by executives at Warner Bros., and that criticisms levied at the show for it being "too violent" or "not having any positive messages" that were given in 1994 are still in play today. Is this true? And if so, will SK Revolution be embracing any kind of tonal or thematic changes to better reflect the attitudes and positioning present in much of today's animation?
- With all of the obstacles this project has faced, are you still committed to making SK Revolution a continuation of the original series (same continuity), or do you think it will be an entirely new show (a "reboot") with new character histories and completely different stories?
- Tremblay Bros. Studios revamped its website this year, and it features lots of new content and licensed IPs. Have any of these projects presented any conflicts of interest with Warner Bros. that have unexpectedly worked against SK Revolution?
- It's now the end of 2018, and several deadline markers given for status updates over the past 3 years have not been met. Does this mean that SK Revolution has failed? If not, what kind of time table should fans realistically expect?
- Going into 2019, will Tremblay Bros. Studios commit to more project updates for Kickstarter backers?
With the exception of any comments made during the concluding parts of the 25th Anniversary Segment, the answer given to each of these questions the day of recording (November 10, 2018) by Christian and Yvon Tremblay was “we cannot talk about that.”

EDIT (Nov 29):
This post has been made in the interest of disclosure, to clarify to SWAT Kats fans that SWAT-Kats Revolution materials have not been withheld by SWATKATS.info or its affiliates, as in Kickstarter Post #39 the following was announced (Oct 21, 2018):
Source: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/18 ... ts/2301948We’ll also be taking that opportunity to talk about a lot of the questions fans have been asking or wanted to know for a while. We'll be sharing a few details about the challenges we’ve encountered and how we’re planning to overcome them.
We will also be sharing some of the pre production items we’ve been using for our presentations to potential partners as part of this interview. All of this will be on-camera so you all will get a chance to see.
A secondary reason was to provide a public answer to many private inquiries revolving around variants of "why didn't you ask [insert topic here]?"
