I am angry because I was told that I am going to get in trouble for writing an anime crossover movie, What about "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?", they have cameos of other people's copyright on that movie, and Wreck-It-Ralph, it is the same thing too but different video game characters. I wanted to write an anime crossover movie, and it will not like Dragon Ball Evolution nor The Last Airbender [the 2010 live action movie].

and if I can;t please explain why?

They licensed those cameos and paid the actors. If you have the money and convince them license them to you do what you want otherwise your work will probably get taken down and you might get sued.

Technically speaking there is nothing to stop you writing a script for a movie. You just won't be able to publish the script or produce the movie without licensing the various works (or risk getting sued).

If you are serious about producing something like this, try to limit your crossovers to those series owned by a particular company. It is far more likely that you can convince one company to back you rather than convincing several different companies. Also, the more companies you have to pay royalties to reduces the proportion of any profits that you can keep for yourself. However, if you have no previous script writing experience or contacts in the entertainment industry, your chances of convincing even one company are very close to zero.

If you haven't started already try producing some original work to upload on YouTube or a similar site. It will let you practice your skills, build your reputation and may make you some money. Once you have a reputation it will be much easier to make the companies take you seriously.
