    The question I would like answered is,,, a prequel to what? Prequel to the 87 animated movie? Prequel to G1 series? Prequel to the Netflix series? If it is about the relationship between Optimus Prime and Megatron, I'm guessing it's safe to assume it's more of an origin movie than a prequel really.
    I'm willing to bet it's an origin movie, which by default, makes it a prequel to everything.

    Considering the way the Bumblebee Movie toyline turned out, I'm gonna stick with Studio Series and WFC and stay miles away from that kiddie shit.

    If the film includes Orion Pax and his journey to becoming Optimus (and they should) they should have a different actor cast as Orion Pax (I'd vote for Garry Chalk or David Kaye) so that, when he becomes Optimus Prime his voice changes to Peter Cullen and we know that our hero has truly risen.

    Peter Cullen can do a young Optimus voice like he did in TFP or he can do his G1 voice but they should have Garry chalk or David Kaye as ultra magnus or someone else

    I'm not doubting Peter Cullen's ability to pull off young Optimus, I just feel it'd add more impact to the moment he becomes Optimus if his voice changes when it happens.

    IIRC the closest we got to Cullen voicing a young Optimus was Cullen voicing Optimus with (substantially-) partial amnesia - which made him sound more naive, but not really younger.

    I can't see this happening IMO. I don't like Orion Pax as it is, but the whole point of the Pax to Prime story is that he's realizing the potential he had all along and becoming the best version of himself. If you switch the voice when he physically upgrades it brings an entirely new cadence to the character and is basically like saying "that other guy is dead, he's been replaced with someone different and better" which goes against the whole idea of Orion Pax.

    Nah, if you get something like All Might who has two very distinctly different forms with different voices, but the same voice actor (Chris Sabat), I'm sure Cullen would have the range to pull something similar off.

    Yeah that would be fine, I was responding to the guy saying it should be two different actors.

    I was thinking they'd get the Cyberverse Voice Actor to play a younger Optimus, then Peter Cullen for older Optimus Prime.

    ...but why?

    It's literally cheaper to just use the same voice actor.

    Please no.
    That guy's energy is spent entirely on imitating Cullen, not acting the part.

    That's kinda problematic because megatron is in the show when in the beginning of bumblebee he wasnt there if it is that would be cool however they would really have to explain some things.
