Roberto Orci Discusses Scene Additions, Fan Love, Starscream, and 40 Robots

ro

As well as posting right here at TFW2005 on our 2005 Boards, Transformers screenwriter Roberto Orci also has a long-running Question & Answer thread at Don Murphy’s message board. In recent days, Roberto has answered several questions that provide some further excitement to fans. Among the details revealed are:

* With many of the Decepticons being CGI, there is more freedom to add scenes in post-production. Adding extra scenes with Transformers is currently under consideration.
* As a follow-up, Roberto said one extra scene being considered was director Michael Bay’s idea with Bay saying, “You and the fans are gonna love this…”
* Starscream’s character will be more similar to his Generation One self.
* Roberto states that Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura’s comments in Empire that there are around 40 robots was not an exaggeration.

    Serve fan boy goodness. One of the scenes we're mulling over was Bay's idea, and he pitched it as, "you and the fans are gonna love this..."
    its the scene at the end where devastator starts breakdancing to 'the touch', just like his toy does

    this is him doing it, you can't see much though because he's kicking up quite a bit of sand

    Sounds interesting to say the least. Very excited for this movie.

    Everything sounds good to me. The anticipation is gradually building. Though the thought of 40 bots in one movie is a little daunting. Most of those will probably just be background characters that get little, if any , characterization, while the main characters get the majority of the attention. Not a bad thing, imo, but it will be interesting to see how big of a role some of the new characters will play in the overall movie.

    I HOPE that we get background characters with little characterisation.

    That way we can get epic battles with redshirts galore.
