    Much better if Optimus Primal would be the Bat and Megatron will be the Croc. So that Beast Wars fans (like me) will have the MP Toy version of those ^_^

    I’d honestly prefer a Beast Wars with better animation than another bumblebee, yessss...

    That’s not very cheese-money of you, nooo...

    Movies = new continuity with no connection to original source. 86 movie is the only exception and Optimus died in that one.

    Dinobot is one of the most popular characters in the series. No way they would leave him out. Plus he turns into a Velociraptor and the third Jurassic World movie will be out that year too. Hasbro doesn’t have the rights to JP anymore so this gives a reason for them to make Dinobot figures cause kids like Raptors still.

    Why can’t people seem to move away from freaking MICHAEL BAY? Why on gods green earth you’d want something new to tie to his run of the films is simply naive. These new writers and directors are going to want to do their own thing. Bumblebee mainly had the connections because that was the plan early on. They ended up changing what they could towards the end but most of it was already done.

    They will certainly lose money if they produce a film on Beast Wars, and if the box office numbers and ratings mean anything, then a Bumblebee sequel will as well. What they should do is the sequel to TLK. There are fans out there who appreciate and like those films, and want to see them continue.

    When I first read this I was like lmao, then I was like aaaayyyyy lmao. The movies exist to make the brand money through toy sells. The movies making money is an even bigger bonus.

    So you cite ratings and box office numbers, then say they should do a TLK sequel?

    TLK bombed. Worse, it almost irreparably tarnished the brand and is the reason the live action films are in limbo now. One of the chief reasons Bumblebee under-performed (despite still being a critical and financial success given its budget and release window) was because TLK damaged the brand so badly. It’s why Bumblebee was hastily retooled into a reboot instead of a Prequel, because everyone hated TLK that much.

    I guarantee you there’s more fans out there who want either Beast Wars or a Bumblebee sequel than a follow up to TLK.

    While I liked the last knight transformers movie, I feel the franchise has underperformed and not lived up to it's full potential on the big screen baby. I think trying something new like beast wars could breath new life into the franchise. It could also fail, but theres no reward without risk. As a business decision I think beast wars is the way to go, but I also don't want them to rush the process so that it can be released in 2022. I would be okay if the released it later on, but I do want them to officially announce that it is in production and show us some concept art.

    The voice actor, Keiji Fujiwara, who voiced dinobot is dead. I just can't hear him being voiced by anyone else.

    While i understand what your saying you realize that the Unfortunate passing of Keiji Fujiwara the japanese voice actor for the show doesnt have anything to do with nor does it affect them casting someone else to try and get his new voice exactly like the old one.

    If box office numbers and critic ratings mean anything, they will lose even more money if they make the TLK sequel.

    While there are fans of Bayformers, there are also fans of the Cats movie. Just how many?

    Why would Dinobot's Japanese voice actor reprise his role for an American movie anyway?

    Wouldn't the logical choice be Scott McNeil?

    Is it official this will be a Beast Wars movie?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just read the first post.

    Very excited for this! Beast wars is my favorite so I look forward to seeing it on the big screen. I am wondering how they\'ll go about doing it, and how everyone will look. I\'m optimistic about this one!

    Yes. I like accurate toys too.
    I hope it is beast wars. I love me some beast robots. Though I will admit that I haven't seen the bumblebee movie so I am being a bit one sided.

    Please do yourself a favor and watch it, the Cybertron scene alone is worth it!

    Why?
    Well that is good to know. I still would like the Beast Wars to be made first.
