Today, some good news: we’re getting a new animated Transformers movie, which will be directed by Josh Cooley, who just won an Oscar for Toy Story 4.
From the Allspark:
It takes place on Cybertron, the planet from which the good-guy and bad-guy robots came from. The film revolves around the relationship between Optimus Prime and Megatron.
The script was written by Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari, the scribes who did production work on Ant-Man and were the credited writers on Ant-Man and the Wasp. Hasbro/eOne is running point on the production of this film.
Sounds good so far. Then we have this:
The film is separate and apart from the live action Transformers film series and the Bumblebee spinoff, and those movies continue on a fast track.
Yeah, this is supposed to be a prequel. How can it be a prequel if it’s separate from the previous films? Inquiring minds and all.
Two things: I want Bumblebee to play an important, pivotal role and I want a damn good story. Seriously. Make me feel something. Bumblebee was able to bring me to tears during three separate scenes; this movie better have me hunched over, sobbing at least once or they’ve screwed it up.
Don’t worry, as more details become available, I’ll let you know. Until then, I wonder just how far in advance you can order movie tickets…?
