Bandai Namco (and Tekken) producer Katsuhiro Hamada took to Twitter (or rather TwitLonger) to establish the company's stance on the Klonoa project.
TL;DR: It's NOT Bandai Namco's fault that the movie's dead, you guys.
So what happened? If I had to guess, maybe it just got too ambitious for an up-and-coming company like Henshin. Maybe Henshin is kinda going into bankruptcy? (Rather dark, but then why else is everyone being so tight-lipped?)

Financial problems is the perfect excuse, and makes all the sense. And I know Don Bluth had several movies planned before American Tail entered production. If he announced every project, that would be at least 2 cancelled movies in a year.

Here's something interesting, apparently Klonoa was trending on the American side of Twitter.And was #1 on Twitch, probably after Games Done Quick did a speed run of the first game a while ago.
Probably won't mean much, though...
We just need PewDiePie to play it.

...you must be joking
Well, it would get the game noticed more.
I am not.
Jacksepticeye should play it too. Aside from him being another big name, he seems to love old PS games (although mostly Spyro), and he has this wholesome personality that would be great for the game. I feel like if he played it, he would really appreciate it.
Here's something we missed: Apparently the Klonoa trademark was renewed earlier this month.
That's good. It's a sign that they at least somewhat care about him still.
Don't remember finding this anywhere else in this thread, so here you are.
Youtuber ChaseFace gives his personal analysis of the first Klonoa-game. He covers the story (spoiler warnings!) and analyses the game's soundtrack, which is pretty neat.
