New Animated Transformer Movie Coming in 2017!
The last four Transformer movies that Michael Bay has “graced” us with have been big action movies that many Transformers fans pan because of the deviation from the source material along with the fact that the Transformers themselves are not the focus of the movies. Now that is about to change!
Word has come out that a new animated movie about the Transformers is going to be released in 2017 soon after Michael Bay’s fifth movie of his “Bayformers” comes out. According to reports, Ant-Man writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari were tapped to work on the story for the project and that the story will focus on the Transformers on Cybertron, as opposed to Earth. So we won’t see Sam or any other humans from the 80’s animated show. This will be all robot action for this origin story. This will be separate from what any story Michael Bay has done and will allow writers to move forward with their own story lines that could more like what we have seen in the 80’s TV animated show.
I for one, am ecstatic to hear this, but my expectations are very high. After having to endure what Bay has trudged out as part of the Transformer’s franchise, this is like a breath of fresh air to me. Shall we start casting the voice actors now? I’m #TeamPeterCullen for Optimus! We’ll be keeping on eye on more news for this.
