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.
