    "I wanted to approach this massive, expansive franchise and really focus in on a tiny corner of the canvas. Everything I've tried to do at Laika, searching for an artful blend of darkness and light, intensity and warmth, humour and heart, I wanted to bring to the Transformers franchise."

    I think he always intended to be different from Bay.

    Still, good to hear that this may sound like an animated film, which has a lot of heart.

    Perhaps it's a good sign that we did get an article at last with the director one of the things being pushed is about it being different. Maybe, just maybe Paramount figured out they couldn't just crank out the same basic Bay Transformers movies forever and still hold a strong position on the box office charts.

    Although I'm also a bit skeptical as well since it's easy to say hey we are going to be different when it's the same suits and producers that gave us the other films. If the look of the robots is the same I think it's going to take more than just one news story to really convince people this time is different after all the times we were told oh we get it this time and this time is different.

    Fingers crossed because the director seems like a nice guy, but I'm not willing to bank on the movie yet.

    That's a pretty vague way of describing filmmaking, which could describe basically any film, but sure, lets see what he does.

    Eh, I wouldn't count them out completely. More likely, there will be no gross sexualization of the female lead, no racial stereotypes, little-to-no bathroom humor, and no war-mongering bloodthirsty autobots.

    Wouldn't Christina Hodson be offended if they sexualized the female lead

    Yeah. And I don't think Travis Knight would direct a movie like that. He would say Nope.
