Red Carpet Treatment

Look familiar?

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…?

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.

    I am glad I got tissues at CVS in Providence, RI during BC ’07 for you for movie1. Somehow I thought there was going to be something emotional involving Bumblebee and I was right. 🙂
