A little more news on the Bumblebee movie came out. It’s nothing major, really but it does have my interest piqued. Especially this (emphasis mine):
Talking about his plans for Bumblebee, director Travis Knight (Kubo And The Two Strings) tells Empire,“I wanted to approach this massive, expansive franchise and really focus in on a tiny corner of the canvas. Everything I’ve tried to do at Laika, searching for an artful blend of darkness and light, intensity and warmth, humour and heart, I wanted to bring to the Transformers franchise.”
“At its core it’s just a beautiful love story between two broken souls who find each other and heal each other,” he adds. “I grew up loving those classic Spielbergian Amblin films. And we’re trying to evoke that kind of emotion in this movie, fusing a rich coming-of-age story with some sci-fi insanity.”
So basically, he’s trying to turn a couple of my fanfic ideas into reality. Oh no, I totally won’t be hunched over, sobbing uncontrollably when the credits roll. Nope, that will never happen at all!
Primus, I’m gonna need a truckload of tissues when I see this. Because if I’m not crying through parts of it, then something is very, very wrong.
It’s going to be a long year.
