    Who would you like to see(or should I say hear) compose the OST for the next film?I was a big fan of Steve Jablonksy and I wouldn't mind if he returned.

    Hopefully not the one from Bumblebee.
    As much as I loved Bumblebee, the score was severely lacking. Honestly, I would just like to have Steve Jablonsky back or anyone else of his caliber like Hans Zimmer.

    Michael Giacchino, Henry Jackman, or Vince Dicola (if they're going to do a G1 inspired film I figure they might as well use some of the original film's tracks).

    Vince DiCola. If we're doing G1 now we might as well go all the way.

    I would love to have Jablonsky back.
    Even if there will be an official reboot, it would be so cool to hear his wonderful themes again.

    Definitely Jablonsky! He has five films worth of excellent music. I wouldn't mind a new voice of sorts to the franchise but his work is so good I wouldn't care if he stayed on forever.

    I was not really a fan of the score for Bumblebee. Aside from "Marina Tower" and "Optimus Prime's Message" there weren't any true standout tracks. Maybe the theme for Dropkick and Shatter, but most of the music was VERY forgettable and not really all that great.

    Personally, I'd be fine with each movie having a different composer, or each director working with their composer to choice (which will probably be the case, judging by the Bay and Knight's choices).

    I really liked Bumblebee's score, and wouldn't mind seeing Dario Marianelli come back. Charlie's theme is easily one of my favorite scores in the brand.

    It's not a terribly original pick, but I would be up for hearing what Vince DiCola could do with a live-action movie.

    Michael Giacchino is always a good choice. He's worked in a lot of different genres, and I often find his scores pretty memorable.

    I actually don't want Jablonsky to return (except in the unlikely case that we get a Bay-directed Transformers 6). I enjoy his Transformers scores fine, but I feel like they can get sort of repetitive. I also find his style a bit too grand and epic at times. That might sound like a weird complaint, since those are usually seen as good things. I don't know, it's just not my ideal Transformers score. That worked for Bay's over-the-top and mythological style, but it might not necessarily work for future movies. I've seen fan edits where people put his music with Bumblebee, and it just doesn't fit. I can appreciate the technical quality of Jablonsky's work, but his style isn't really my thing.

    I'm kind of curious to hear a John Williams take on Transformers

    I enjoyed Jablonsky’s work on the Bay films, but I would like to see someone new take the reigns as composer for these new films. I liked Dario Marianelli’s score for Bumblebee and would like to see him return, but Michael Giacchino or Hans Zimmer would also be welcome.

    Michael Giacchino. He seems to know how to create new, original music (memorable is debatable, but I digress) while still paying tribute to what has come before. The best examples are Rogue One and his Spider-Man scores. Just listen to the music and you can hear elements from John Williams' score and bits of the original animated Spider-Man theme song in those Spidey films. Imagine if he can somehow integrate elements from Jablonsky, the original theme song, as well as some new stuff, I think the score and the music could be great!

    I really like the Bumblebee score, but I just prefer the epic scores that Jablonsky gave us, I would love if he returned.

    However, a few names I would like would be John Powell, Bear McCreary, maybe Ludwig Göransson? Daniel Pemberton also did a great job with the Birds of Prey and Spider-Verse scores, I think he could be a really good fit too.

    Brad Fiedel is the best, but sadly he is retired. Well, Ramin Djawadi is the best choice for now. Hans Zimmer, Brian Tyler, Junkie XL and Alan Silvestri also can.

    I'd rather have somebody new/different, whoever that may be.

    Bear did some magic with the Godzilla King of the Monsters soundtrack. I'd love to see what he could do with transformers
