    Prequel, Beast Wars. Both CONFIRMED with production staff attached. At this point it doesn\'t really need to be in the BeeVerse to be good, I just loved BB enough to want it to stay.

    People saying \'Beast Wars won\'t happen lmao\' are clearly just butthurt Anti-BW fans. We\'ve got a press release and a writer. This prequel sounds good. Tbh it\'s gonna just be Netflix WFC2 in the sense that covering the War on Cybertron is always gonna hit the same beats. Makes WFC look sorta redundant... 

    I\'m excited for both.

    But seriously the Netflix vs Movie discrepancies are probably gonna confuse casual viewers.

    Awesome! That's not too long to wait. Especially since they'll probably start filming in summer of 2021, meaning we could get set pictures about a year from now (this sounds like one of the live-action ones, not the animated film). And obviously other announcements before that (director, cast, etc.) That's not too long at all.

    I'm glad they seem to be aiming for summer release dates again. My main dislike about Bumblebee was that it was released in winter. To me Transformers just seems like a summer thing. They're usually big outdoors movies. Hopefully they have smooth sailing and don't have to push it back until December again.

    If it is Bumblebee 2 I wonder if Travis Knight will come back.

    He certainly expressed interest in making a sequel to bumblebee so I wouldn’t be surprised if Hasbro called him back for it.

    The New HasbroVerse is looking pretty promising.

    Optimus Prime was barely in Bumblebee, and Megatron wasn't there at all. So as long as the aesthetic is relatively consistent and Bumblebee isn't gratuitously murdered on screen, the movie could easily be folded into Bumblebee canon retroactively if they want to.

    Unless it's a 15 minute short film about Orion Pax and Megatron touring a dock together, I don't think G1 fans will feel very strongly about anything they do.

    I'm really happy they decided to reboot the franchise. I never thought the day would come where we get a Beast Wars movie!

    I'll believe it when I see either the trailer or a teaser for the trailer, and not a minute before.

    I feel like it's going to be studio series. I believe the studio series are film only and most likely includes bayverse and non bayverse films

    I wonder if Beast Wars was already going to be part of Bays hypothetical TF6 along side Unicron? Maybe their gonna take that script and turn it into another soft reboot ala Age of Extinction.

    They recently made Optimus Primal and Cheetor guardians of ancient relics. I think Primal guarded the Requiem Blaster in Prime Wars Trilogy, while Cheetor was Guardian of The Allspark in Cyberverse, perhaps they could have similar roles as guardians of something that could stop Unicron.

    To me that sounds like they aren't completely sure what direction they are going in with this and it's still up in the air.

    I'm taking a guess of something new. The new leadership at the studio seems to want to put their own stamp on things so we are seeing reboots of things like GI Joe.

    Although Bumblebee was a bit of an odd duck because they tried to have it both ways. If we didn't like Bumblebee they were going to throw the old Paramount under the bus. But if we loved Bumblebee new Paramount was willing to take all the credit. Box office is a bit hard to guess on how happy new Paramount was. The domestic $127 million was kind of disappointing but the international $341 million wasn't bad.
