Hascon 2017 is done and dusted. With it, we now return to our regularly scheduled program. While we were busy with the convention we have received a word, all the way from Ireland, that Boulder Media Studio is looking for a crew to work on an unnamed CGI Animated Movie based on a ‘popular Hasbro property’. Of course we know that the movie is Transformers thanks to Hasbro’s Investor Day. It was previously stated that the movie will take place in the Live Action Movie Universe, as a prequel movie highlighting the war on Cybertron.
“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.”
