Spoiler Warning: The following news post contains spoilers from the upcoming movie.
Speaking to Screenrant, Transformers: Bumblebee movie director Travis Knight expressed his delight to see a Cybertron-set CGI movie based on the opening sequence; highlighting the fall of Cybertron.
“Well, actually it would be wholly animated because the beginning of the movie is completely animated.” said Mr. Knight. “So, you know, it has live action lighting and textures and everything else, so it has that feeling, but yeah, I would love to see that movie. I gotta tell you… that was one of the biggest thrills for me, in this process, was bringing Cybertron to life and seeing the fall of Cybertron, just a glimpse of it, because that’s where the animated series began and we wanted to begin this film in the same manner, to pay tribute to that and it was so much fun. I tried to stuff as much as I possible could into those opening moments, just because that’s the movie I’ve always wanted to see, I would love to see a movie like that, yeah.”
At the moment, the director is returning to his family owned Laika Studios to finish the work he started for The Missing Link (2019) and a brand new unnamed stop-motion animation project.
