“Boulder Media are building a new feature animation division for its new owners Hasbro Entertainment. We are excited to offer talented artists the opportunity to join our very successful and established animation studio as we expand into a new area. We will be producing the first CG theatrical feature film made entirely in Ireland. The movie is based on a very well-known Hasbro property and we can’t wait to bring it to the big screen.”

Transformers Live Action Movie Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura was at Hascon 2017 Dinner to talk a bit about the movie aspect of the franchise. While he was there, he discussed about the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee movie. Nothing major was revealed. Most of the info are already known, but we thought to inform the fans.
- Bumblebee Movie is set in 1986 with all the “weird” hair and music and everything.
- It’ll be a very emotional movie, feeling similar to E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial by Steven Spielberg (who is also a producer of the Transformers Franchise).
- Bumblebee will have a special bond with Hailee Steinfeld’s character.
- Travis Knight (award winning Kubo and the Two Strings, Coraline, and ParaNorman) will be directing and it’ll be on a different direction than Michael Bay movies.
- The movie will be kept simpler and will feel a lot like the first Transformers Live Action Movie.
- In future, they believe they could [no promises] do more movies for other characters, set in different time periods.
The team also joked about several possibilities for Transformers 6. Some of the jokes included making a Time Travel movie and Transformers as babies.
Earlier we brought you a news regarding Transformers Universe: Bumblebee being filmed in Northern California.
Now, we have with us a bunch of Set Photos from Mare Island Navel Shipyard where the ending of the movie is supposedly taking place.
Among the photos is a colorized version of the Bumblebee Movie Logo which we brought to you few months back.
All images are from an Instagram User named Dan Garcia. Check out the photos, after the jump.
Following our report last week of principal photography taking place on Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County, today The Vallejo Times-Herald featured an interview with veteran co-producer Jonathan “JJ” Hook wherein he discussed both his location management process and why Vallejo – including Mare Island – works well for the upcoming Transformers Universe: Bumblebee film.
“It’s an Anywhere America, Back-to-the-Future type vibe. The great thing about Vallejo is there aren’t these huge chain stores. There a few other cities in California like it, but not that many. The city hasn’t been turned into a strip mall.” Mare Island’s drydocks have been perfect for “Bumblebee,” said Hook. So good, he noted, “the ending of the movie was re-written after finding the location.”

Today, Transformers director Michael Bay and actor Mark Wahlberg each announced plans to assist with Hurricane Harvey relief.
In a series of tweets, Bay posted about his donation of $100,000 to the people of Texas which will be directed towards animal shelters and finding ways to provide cars to families that lost vehicles and have no insurance. Via Instagram, Wahlberg shared AQUAhydrate plans to ensure clean water access by sending bottled water to communities in need.
When tragedy strikes, it’s our duty as Americans to lead the charge and help those in need. Our trucks are on the way!
We commend these efforts among many others and encourage you to show your TFW2005 community spirit by helping in any way that you can.
Concept artist Ryan Meinerding has shared some of the work he did for movies such as Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians Of The Galaxy volume 2 etc. Among the newly released art is an old concept for Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen Decepticon Sideways.
It’s interesting to note that the vehicle mode was initially imagined as a Lamborghini rather than an Audi.
“Throwback Thursday to that time when I wasn’t designing and painting superheroes. Between Iron Man and Iron Man 2 I worked on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. These are designs for a Lamborghini bot. He didn’t make it in to the final movie, and correct me if I’m wrong but I think they ended up changing it to an Audi. I loved Transformers as a kid so to work on this project was incredibly cool. There wasn’t a toy of this one but I loved Sideswipe as a kid and I also got to work on some designs for him.”
The second head concept seems to have been the inspiration for Soundwave’s head on the same movie.
