IGN recently had an interview with Transformers 5 script writer Akiva Goldsman, who recently headed a writer’s room room to pen story ideas for a Transformers Cinematic Universe. In the interview Goldsman talks about the writer’s room, the connectivity of future Transformers films, and the importance of the human element in Transformers. Here is what he had to say about that last subject:
Do I think Transformers can live without humans? Sure. Do I think humans can live without Transformers? Sure. In Transformers movies? Sure! But, fundamentally, there seems to be something really great about the interaction between the two species. I think that, in the main, I would suggest that that would be something you wouldn’t want to squander. Although that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t do all sorts of things for a little while.
Furthermore, Goldsman also mentions the animated prequel that takes place before the events of the previous live action films.
