Here’s a Thing That was Revealed:
It’s a movie and it was just recently announced; it seems to be a sequel to the Bumblebee movie, with Optimus Prime as the main focus. My thoughts on everything are as follows:
-I’m loving the idea of a non-stoic, slightly more emotional Optimus Prime. Back in the days of Generation 1, Optimus wasn’t shy about showing some emotion. He wasn’t above pitching out a rejoinder. He didn’t mind having a little fun, either. So yeah, I want to see a return to this.
-Bumblebee gets an off-road alt-mode. Yes please. ❤
-Nightbird. Are. You. SERIOUS?! If you’ve paid attention to my blog, you know that I have a ton of issues with the character. I have never liked her and I have often seen her as overrated. But, the one saving grace here? We’re not doing G1. She’s apparently an entirely new character and not aligned with any faction. I might–heavy emphasis on the word ‘might’–be able to tolerate her.
-Hell YES, BEAST WARS!
-Scourge will make an appearance. We’re getting Terrorcons. This could get interesting.
-We know about the Maximals, but we don’t know which Predacons we’ll see. Me, I’m really hoping to see Dinobot and I hope he joins the Maximals at a critical moment, like in the middle of a battle that might not go the Maximals’ way. Sure, I want things to be leading up to this moment, but I don’t want him to decide mid-scene and before the second act that he should team up with the good guys.
-Arcee. That is all.
-I’m noticing a lack of Decepticons. I’m wondering if we’ll see them late in the film, if at all. Or they could be the main villains in the next movie.
-There are humans, but no mention of Charlie from Bumblebee. I know this isn’t Bumblebee’s story, but I really would like to see a quick cameo of Charlie and Memo. Nothing huge, just a quick little scene.
-Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal are finally going to meet. I’ve only been waiting for that for about twenty five years.
The movie will debut in 2022. I hope by then, I’ll be a bit more comfortable with going to a theatre. Because I have no intention of missing this.
