I want to ask how many times an anime/sci fi live action which is in pre-production have changed directors already. I've read other topics here about making production questions (like behind the scenes) but I don't have it clear. Is it allowed?

Behind-the-scenes information is explicitly on-topic according to the help centre, and so is "trivia" such as how many times a film has changed directors. This kind of information is part of what a fan might be interested in, and it's on-topic to ask about it (provided it's sci-fi or fantasy, of course).

  • Agreed, with the provision that answers must be good SE answers (full, complete, and detailed). Jul 18, 2017 at 15:08
  • Interesting. If it was where I think it should be (M&TV), it'd be closed as trivia. There's nothing in the SFF help center about 'trivia'?

  • @Mazura If there is, it'd just be saying that trivia is on-topic :-) A large proportion of the questions on this site are (or could be argued to be) trivia. Incidentally, there's a two-year-old consensus on M&TV that trivia shouldn't be on-topic, which I support since "trivia" is an inherently difficult concept to define rigorously enough for a close reason.

While the subject is on topic (see Rand al'Thor's answer), simply asking for a list of movies that have changed directors during pre-production may be closed as off topic because it asks for a (potentially very large) list of works. Try to phrase the question so that it can have a definitive answer rather than asking for an open-ended list.

    I think the OP is asking about a specific movie

  • @KutuluMike is right, and you can see the question here.

  • @Randal'Thor That's good. I read the Meta question as being about how many times any anime/sci fi live action movie has changed director's in pre-production.
