00:58:14 Transformers: Bumblebee Movie Director Travis Knight Breaks Silence

 

Additionally, he touched on the subject of a Test Screening; which we heard before from journalist Jeremy Conrad. The director stated that several tweaks are taking place based on the feedback received from the screening.

It was also mentioned that the robot cast will be kept at a limit and the story will stand on its own. Regarding the mythology, Hasbro has offered the Transformers Brand Bible to the director for reference purposes.

“So, what I was kind of trying to do with this film because it’s set in the 80s, was harken back to the great, original, G1 vibe and feeling and tone. So, there are definitely Easter eggs for fans who are down with that sort of thing. There’s a lot of continuity between this and the film’s that Michael has done. But the film does stand on its own.”

  • Culmination to 10 years of comics
  • Can be hard to bring on new readers 10 years into a franchise
  • Don’t let the things you love go on into oblivion; end them on a high
  • Whats next? Not sure.

 

“TRANSFORMERS: UNICRON is a grand finale to the past 12 years of TRANSFORMERS comics at IDW and to really celebrate that and to celebrate the people who have made it such an amazing ride, we’re getting some amazing, beloved artists to contribute to what I’m sure will be our biggest—literally—TRANSFORMERS story ever,” said David Mariotte, Associate Editor. “This is an event years in the making and one that only works because of the years fans and creators have invested in the comic.”

The action kicks off on Free Comic Book Day, May 5th, with the #0 issue,
