    A quick Google search says she wrote edge of seventeen. I haven't watched it, but I heard its really good.

    So we have a director who directed a great movie, a writer who wrote a great movie, and the girl who starred in that great movie. Sounds good to me.

    I wonder if anyone other than Megatron knows about The Fallen at this point.

    I got a good feeling bout this movie. I think we'll finally get a TF movie that will mostly satisfy everyone and avoid the thumbnails from hell that the reviews for AOE & TLK got.

    We finally got a new creative team, there's the potential to some great tie ins to the previous films, and potential for a better/simpler story and more character development because of the smaller cast.

    My only trepidation is that the movie may only have Bee and maybe a couple of other bots, but I'm really diggin' the potential this movie has.

    It's common for different writers to rewrite scripts. The first draft of The Empire Strikes Back was written by Leigh Brackett, then Lucas himself rewrote it a few times, and then Lawrence Kasdan rewrote it a few times.

    The robots that absolutely have to be in this film

    Autobots
    Bumblebee
    Hot Rod
    (Some fembot) Maybe Strongarm with the look/personality of Prime Arcee- gotta keep the nameslaping trend going

    Decepticons
    Starscream
    Soundwave
    Barricade
    Frenzy
    Wheelie (He'd still be workin' for Soundwave at the time)

    I was also liking the potential of TF5. I still liked it, but I can definitely tell that its not a good movie. Its sorta like Aoe in that it starts really good before kinda dissolving into a mess in the last half.

    After AOE, I gave up my hope of a Bay directed TF film that would satisfy everyone. Nothing bout TLK 's marketing made me think it would turn that trend around even though I liked AOE and didn't hate TLK.

    Maybe I'll end up looking like a total idiot but I think Bee can be the Bayverse's Wonder Woman.

    I think so too, but we'll probably both be idiots in the end. :lol

    I wonder what The Fallen is doing during this time. Is he on the Nemesis giving orders to Starscream?

    I'm all in for the Bumblebee Movie. As long as they don't turn him into a VW bug

    Safe to assume Starscream knew, because that was the first place he went after Megatron died in TF1.

    I wonder if Steinfeld's character finds out that Bumblebee is a Transformer or if she drives his car form without knowing.

    I'm not sure if this has been said, but in TLK Edmund Burton mentions that Bumblebee was not "nice" at all in the past, but was a pretty hardened soldier. I'm guessing the Bumblebee movie will be about how his friendship with the human protagonist makes him into the bot we know today.

    She'll probably find him wounded and help fix him up, like in the G1 Marvel comic.

    I can't listen to it right now, but are you certain they are talking about Bumblebee and not The Edge of Seventeen? Having another writer add some lines to the original script is not a bad thing. Sometimes putting your idea into words may be difficult, so an other person's input may help. It's like proofreading in some cases.

    Lorenzo di Bonaventura said that there will be Decepticons and Bumblebee in this movie (the movie isn't supposed to feature Optimus). I think it will be an Autobot/Decepticon conflict, but on a smaller scale like some of those G1 episodes that featured only few characters (Dancitron comes to mind).

    That would be pretty interesting! Having Bumblebee learn how to be friends with humans in a less dire setting. Perhaps he'll be hiding from Decepticons and the girl will get involved by accident.

    The tie-in comics have The Fallen trapped in his sarcophagus until 1993, so if they're following the tie-in comics, The Fallen's sarcophagus could appear. If they don't follow the tie-in comics, The Fallen could appear on the Nemesis. If not, I wonder if the Decepticons will mention The Fallen.

    My guess...

    -Hailee Steinfeld plays a Witwicky.
    -She is Ron's sister.
    -She is the latest to inherit the glasses.
    -She has a boyfriend names Charles.
    -Bumblebee is shown to have been watching over the family for decades. The soldier that jumped out of his trunk was a Witwicky.
    -The film ends with him saying goodbye to Steinfeld and settling into his role of watching over Sam from the shadows.
