Peter Cullen on Beast Hunters and Transformers 4

MSB_73451

IGN has posted a short interview with the voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen. There’s some interesting response to the questions asked – Cullen refers to the new Predacon dragon villain, Predaking, as “phenomenal” – along with complements for his fellow cast members including Frank Welker and Steve Blum.

Where it gets interesting is the response to the question “Does this build toward a big finale for the Transformers story?” Peter Cullen replies ‘I don’t think there’s ever going to be a big finale. I think, as all series go, it’s always a transformation – there’s a good word! – into another environment.‘ (He might, of course, be referring to the overall nature of the franchise and how each new series takes its own direction, and not necessarily Transformers Prime specifically)

On the subject of Transformers 4, Peter Cullen does not say much – other than confirming that yes, he will be a part of it and is very much looking forward to his involvement in the production.

    Very nice. Guess that confirms that Prime is back for #4, and I can't wait to see what happens in this season of tfp:bh

    Interesting that he doesn't sound like he thinks Prime is exactly ending. Not going to read to deeply into that, but odd.

    Odds are him and Welker will be back for the next show if it's a sequel, and they probably know more than they're letting on if a sequel series is already in preproduction.

    That doesn't really mean anything. All he is really saying is Transformers will always tell another story, going in a different direction. If you look at the question, it is phrased as "is this an ending for Transformers?" rather than "Transformers Prime", which I think shapes his response.

    Still worth paying attention to as I'm personally of the view that the next series will be in the same universe, but this isn't the silver bullet sealing that deal IMO.

    I wouldn't mind if it's a sequel series. Honestly with all the time and effort put into the CG models, they can easily re-use them and then focus most of the budget on new enviroments and characters.

    Honestly the sequel series could be like Energon is to Armada (but off course better)

    Cullen: Some very brilliant, genius people, years ago, conceived this idea that drilled a great space into youthful imagination and it has stayed alive all these years because it is something that had never been done before...


    Yeah, NEVER been done before. That's why I was collecting Gobots before Transformers came along. Because it was never done before the Transformers.
