    Can someone tell those hollywood slow pokes that Mr. Cullen & Mr. Welker are NOT getting any younger! When are they going to start filming the next installment?! (Why couldn't they do like...Peter Jackson was it...who did Lord of the Rings/Hobbit? Do all the recording at once!)

    Because LOTR and the Hobbit films were adapted from previous material and the plan was to film them at once and release the films a year after each other. The Transformers films didn’t have that luxury and still have to write the script, cast the characters, find shooting locations, get a director and edit.

    About what Movie do you say? We have Bumblebee Movie and Cybertron prequel, Michael Bay and Hailee Steinfeld hinted about the series of spin-offs.

    They really need to take their time. The current movies have had 10 years of success, but I feel like interest in the Transformers brand as a whole has suffered from some fatigue. Bumblebee will be a modest success because it’s budgeted to be just that.

    But before they go spending another 200 million or so on a full sequel, they really need to be sure of the direction. As much as I love Bays vision of them being the ultimate popcorn blockbusters that place visuals first and foremost. They can’t go that direction again for quite a long time because after 10 years the market has shrunk.

    I don’t just feel that way about the movies though, I feel the brand as a whole needs a shake up. Theres still fun to be had, it’s just going through the motions a bit.

    There hasn't even been talk of a Director reported.

    It'll take a while. Be patient.

    It's likely the series of spin-offs would bring sufficiently new thread. Give me the Movie about Jetfire!

    First they need a director, second if it keeps its June 2019 date, then it has to start filming within the next 4-6 months, as TF1-5 always filmed in summer

    Why are you even here? Please, tell us what your favorite TF series is so I can find the appropriate section of the forum and troll it.

    I wouldn't mind seeing this continuity come to an end with a proper defeat of Unicron but when it'll happen, who knows?

    Doesn't leave a lot of time for the pre-production that needs to take place.

    Not exactly, lets not forget that The Last Knight entered Pre-Production before Bay signed on, Bay signed on in Late 2015-Early 2016 with some work have been done before that, also Travis Knight signed on to do Bee 4 months before they started filming, but you can be assured alot of pre-production was done before he signed.

    So if TF6 will still come in Summer 2019, they may have no director, but the TF crew are for sure working on the designs for the new robots and all that kind of stuff right now.

    None of that fills me with any confidence whatsoever.

    If you didn't notice the absense of Michael Bay and arbitrariness of Goldner and Bonaventura led to the disaster in TF5! And, let's stop to pretend - 2019' Movie is animated prequel, why do you need anything else?

    I think the reason people think the 2019 is the animated film is because they are already working on it, but i dont know if it considering it takes several years to do an animated film.

    Bay had the same kind of input he had in the previous film in TF5, lets not forget the writers room was his idea and it was his decision to make TF5 about King Arthur, so Bay also had some responsability for what happened to TF5, not just the producers.
