    Awesome to hear some news. Kinda hoping it won't just be Bumblebee 2 and will actually have a bit larger of an Autobot cast, but still small enough to develop them all as characters.

    He's also very committed to Laika, which has been understandably struggling to stay afloat during the pandemic.

    I'm betting there's gonna be
    5, maybe 6 autobots
    5 or 4 decepticons
    And maybe 2 main characters if it is going off the after credits scenes

    In the same way normal Transformers is just "Need for Speed" with robot modes.

    There's a lot more to Beast Wars than just beast modes.

    I'd say it's outright false reporting. Joby Harold's script is not at all confirmed to be a direct sequel to Bumblebee. It's stuff like this that leads to mass confusion among the fanbase.

    And the hot mess continues. Yay for diversity, but move on already from the Bay universe. Everyone else has. It's terrible - even Spielberg knows it.

    If BB was such a smash success, why are you overhauling the creative team to do yet another sequel that is still stunted by the terrible universe you've set up? This is just like X-Men - they have had several chances to move on but can't see the writing on the wall. Half moving on is not moving on. Bumblebee still looks more like an insect than the Autobot any of us cared about for 30 years, despite the major upgrade in alt mode (which I heard they pissed away anyway).

    So we have to wait just like X-Men fans are left waiting until it may be too late. These windows aren't never ending. Wait until they see what happens to a sub mediocre movie when people no longer have the same disposable income, time, or freedom. Somehow the arrow just points further and further down.

    By the time the look and feel is accurate, Cullen and Welker will be dead. These things matter to us.

    Guys Steven Caple Jr. may have started out as a small-time director (like everyone) but his shorts have multiple awards under his belt, and Creed 2 is a pretty amazing movie. Not as good as the first but still amazing nonetheless. Just cause he doesn't have much under his belt doesn't mean he doesn't know what he's doing. Unlike the writers talked about in the article who only really have one or two good projects in a sea of trash.

    Ummm creed II? That movie was kinda amazing haha. Probably how he got the job

    what does diversity have to do with anything? Pretty sure they got him because he's a great director haha. the fact you're complaining about this shows a lot about you

    also while I like the G2 design slightly better, we should kinda give up on trying to change the design.

    1. the bumblebee design is completely fine doesn't really need any changing honestly
    2. modern audiences TF fans and general audiences alike are more familiar with that design. it is what it is and tbh it's not a bad design either.

    P.S. it's a reboot

    ...........

    No, I don't know what you mean, actually.

    EDIT: And he just deleted his post, I'm sure he had a perfectly legitimate reason to do so.:rolleyes:

    Updated it since it gave the wrong impression. 'Bumblebee Universe Movie' sounds about right.

    "The article denotes that Bumblebee Universe Movie has triumphed over the Beast Wars script; to be the next movie in line."

    So when does the rioting start?

    I hope it's as good as the BB movie but I have serious bumblebee fatigue. They gota vary this up already. It's gotten to the point where any yellow and black colour scheme is an instant visual sleeping pill.

    Not Beast Wars? Not interested. Will be passing.
    I knew they would choose the wrong script... hope the BW one leaks.

    BW is still happening

    oof you're right forgot they already dumped the Volkswagon rip.

    edit: slightly off-topic but does anyone think a BW movie should be animated and not Live action? it might come off creepy seeing lifelike animals being ripped apart and be worn by robots

    With neither the director or the writer seeming to have much relevant experience, I will neither get excited or worried. But the producer is still Lorenzo di Bumaventura so... we'll see.
