Ever since interview snippets from John Cena and Hailee Steinfeld came into existence, Transformers Live Action Movie Fans wondered when they’ll hear from Travis Knight; the director of Transformers: Bumblebee. For many months he was silent. Following the immense success during CinemaCon 2018, Mr. Knight finally shared his views with the audience.
The director stated that it was a new experience for him to direct a live action movie as opposed to stop-motion animation he is familiar with.
Additionally, he touched on the subject of a Test Screening; which we heard before from journalist Jeremy Conrad. The director stated that several tweaks are taking place based on the feedback received from the screening.
It was also mentioned that the robot cast will be kept at a limit and the story will stand on its own. Regarding the mythology, Hasbro has offered the Transformers Brand Bible to the director for reference purposes.
“So, what I was kind of trying to do with this film because it’s set in the 80s, was harken back to the great, original, G1 vibe and feeling and tone. So, there are definitely Easter eggs for fans who are down with that sort of thing. There’s a lot of continuity between this and the film’s that Michael has done. But the film does stand on its own.”
