    Well, if you take the 3d creatures seen in King Kong, and those seen in Chronicles of Narnia, you have a good chunk of the 1st season Beast Wars cast.

    From Kong:
    Kong = Primal
    T/V Rex = Megatron
    Spiders = Black Arachnia/Tarantulus
    Raptors = Dinobot

    From Narnia:
    Cheetah = Cheetor
    Rhino = Rhinox
    White Tiger = Tigertron

    Can even take that Birdcat thing make it Airrazor, and screw it, take Aslan and make it Lioconvoy or whatever.

    Both of these movies designed and implemented these characters with personality, and visually nailed them as being realistic. The action sequences were entertaining and exciting, more so than most Ive seen in a while.

    The entire time, all I could think about is "Imagine if these guys Transformed", and it wasn't a far stretch, because we saw it for years in BW. This was especially so in Kong with the fight between Kong and Trex. It's one on one, brutal, and frikkin awesome. I could just imagine Chaulk and Kaye chatting it up talking crap to each other throughout the battle.

    Go see Kong, watch that fight, and imagine half way through it them transforming and fighting in Robot mode as V1 BW Primal and Megs.

    So, since half of what would be needed to accomplish this type of movie is done, both character design and story wise, would you want it?

    I for one say, people at Hasbro, at least look into it. :)

    Tony, that's one of the best ideas I've ever heard. I wish I were the powers that be.

    When the Rhino in Narnia charges I was all like "ZOMG, it's RHINOX!!1!"

    Haven't seen Kong yet though. A Beast Wars film would be cool, but will never happen as there wouldn't be a single human in it. It would just be a giant animated film (essentially), cost way too much, and probably not be any good.

    Funny, when I saw the first Kong clips I was thinking about Optimus Primal too. Think he would be better a a giant Gorilla?

    Great idea. I'd love to see it happen, but if they do it I don't it happening before 2010 at least, since they'll likely want to do a full G1 movie trilogy first.

    I love the idea, but maybe the timing isn't quite right? It's way too late to make it for the tenth anniversary of Beast Wars, and we've got the pseudo-G1 movie coming up. Maybe on the 15th anniversary if the currently planned TF movie is a hit?

    But that's what Beast Wars was all about!

    Seriously though, a BW movie would rock with the original actors :D

    Well, BW was the most popular and highly-regarded TF TV show, and it ran for a good while, was definately very popular. If the G1 movie is good, and is confirmed to have sequels, who knows if we don't see a one-shot spin-off movie for Beast Wars. I hadn't realised until you mentioned it that Kong vs the T-rex is exactly how we'd be seeing Megs and Primal fight it out. And that would be considerbly awesome.

    I really love to see a live action BW movie. If they really make it, the problem is everybody (non TF fans) will say BW movie is just a King Kong rip-off or Narnia rip-off :(
