    I can get behind this - his background will probably serve him well on the VFX side, and given Bumblebee presumably won't be talking but will still need to emote, a stop motion director who would have an eye for detail in his skill set is an inspired choice.

    Wow. An accomplished director who's shown he's capable of telling damn good stories? Sign me the hell up!

    This is the most hopeful I've felt about a live-action TF movie since 2006. If he brings even half the creativity of Kubo to this franchise, I'd be satisfied.

    I know this may seem a bit irrelevant and rather ambitious, but do you know when they'll be offering auditions? I mean, I realize there hasn't been any light on the current plot and such but I'd at the very least appreciate an approximation.

    First info on any casting or casting calls for extras should be heard some time in April/May. The movie should be set to start filming in late May to early June.

    Wait... we could potentially have a good Transformers movie! One that's not good if you "turn your brain off" or good "for an 80's movie" or any such specifics. It could be for real good.

    Yes! Finally, a director who knows what he's doing.

    I haven't seen Kubo and the Two Strings, but 97% on Rotten Tomatoes? Oh boy. Things are boding well for good old Bee and his spin-off film! I'm excited! :D

    How good can transformers movie be it's just giant alien robots vs format
    Alien robots No differnt what you see in cartoons and comics, even comics and cartoons have bad humor in them how much better can it be good vs evil that's it same with batman, avengers.

    For people who don't like movies may as well say they don't like comics and cartoons there no differnt from movies except for bot designs that are differnt

    Anything from Laika studios turns to gold, except for Box Trolls. I loved Kubo and the two strings, so this is gonna be interesting.
