    Because that wouldn't be a Beast Wars movie, it would just be a Transformers movie but with animal altmodes along side the regular vehicle Transformers which would then make no sense as to "why even bother" with a BW movie.

    I'm saying Hasbro was lucky the live movies continue making money after the first one.

    Ah, thanks for explaining.
    But I definitely agree with that statement. The first movie proved to be the best out of Bayverse, and it lured people in for ROTF and DOTM. If I recall correctly though, didn't TLK barely break even?

    I was going to say something about bumblebee but then signed in relief after remembering the reboot announcement.... and yeah, TLK actually lost them around 100 million thanks to marketing costs being at their peak for the TF movie franchise during that movie.

    It doesn't need to have vehicle transformers though. You can have it be purely beast formers.

    The circumstances that made Beast Wars a notable cartoon no longer exist, While a new project would undoubtedly generate some cool toy designs it's highly unlikely that they're going to capture lightening in a bottle again in terms of fiction. Beast Wars is well remembered by 90's kids and a modest revival effort of some kind could see some limited success, but that's not the kind of irrational Big Money that the owners are looking for so I think either nothing will come of this as the risk would be seen as too great, or they go for it anyway and it flops regardless of how good or bad it is because my generation doesn't have money for nostalgia.

    Especially because the first one proved to be the worst of them all.
    People wanting to see more after that fiasco was a miracle.

    I like the idea of a BW movie set in the future.
    Something like Planet of the apes?
    After WW3 humanity faces extinction and a group of Maximals is trying to protect them against the Predacons who want to finish the job.
    Something like that.

    I sincerely hope it will not follow the original storyline. While the story of Beast Wars was very memorable, what made it work were the characters. I want more of Beast Wars, not really more of the same thing. New storyline with plenty of Easter eggs for old fans would be splendid. I'd also not mind if they updated/tried new things with the designs.

    An alternate universe/or the past crossing over with the modern world could work really well. Or maybe the Maximal/or Predacon ship gets discovered and a time-space bridge is established between now and the past. I'd love for them to use the time-travel gimmick, but reinvent the idea.

    I'd also like if some of the characters from comics, BWII and Neo made and appearance. There were so many things that didn't make it into cartoon that I'd love for them to use them in the new universe.

    I\'v been thinking about it & how is it that it\'s soo much work to do a Beast Wars with All the other TF Movies that have been made. The can make a Beast Wars movie. Even the last TF Movies on just how Very bad they were. A Beast Wars movie needs to be the next TF Movie.

    After watches Avengers Endgame, how and why would Beast Wars cost so much, and you guys who have seen the movie know what I'm talking about.

    No TF movie is gonna make Avengers money. For one thing, that would require an actual story, for another, it would require that story to be actually good..

    It also would require sticking to tried and true basics of the franchise, because that's what draws people in - familiarity.

    As long as they have people in charge (writers, directors and producers) that know the material and are able to create a story from that universe that is easy to understand and not too complicated to make then I am all for it. Otherwise, I'd be fine with waiting until the 30th anniversary of Beast Wars to see something.

    Short version: Don't rush into it!

    especially when transformers has nowhere near the amount of support marvel gets, and considering even BB barely made it close to 500mil worldwide, there is no chance a beastwars movie would be able to get the money to scrape past budget+marketing costs...

    All they can do now is think about what they’ve done and work hard.
