    No point making this when Paramount is going to reboot the whole TF movie branch. Also reports about them wanting to cancel BB.

    You know, I'm no fan of the Bayverse stuff, but I don't see this as any kind of reason to cancel this. It's not like this means the Bay films somehow cease to exist - there will be a lot of fans who will enjoy seeing this, why take that away from them?

    By diverting budget from a dead franchise into the new one?

    Seriously, unless Hasbro can make money on a not even started animated project tied to a continuity that effectively died today, no point in throwing money away.

    Exactly, though this did make me chuckle, reminding me of when the first movie came out and fans were crying about their childhoods being ruined, as if everything they enjoyed about Transformers had been erased. Ironic.

    Yes. Retroactively cancel all the movies, please.

    I'm not sure the animated prequel movie was ever actually happening.

    The last thing we heard about it:

    Boulder Media Hunting For Talent Across Europe For The Animated Feature Film - Transformers News - TFW2005

    It’s recent enough that Hasbro must’ve known they were ending the series beforehand. But maybe we’ll hear something soon that confirms either way.

    Funny how there are people whining about how the bay films being stopped is ruining their childhoods now.

    If they still want to move forward then they should wait until the reboot. No sense making it about a discontinued continuity. Make it relate to the new one.
