They confirmed that the Bumblebee movie will only have four robots in it. (This is coming from Lorenzo di Bonaventura, so take it with a grain of salt, he's been wrong before, sometimes I wonder if he's just making up stuff, lol.)

If it's true, I don't really have a problem with it. Pacific Rim only has four (main) robots and it's better than any of Bay's movies with 20+ robots.

We already know Bee and the red Plymouth villain.

I'm curious if Optimus is counted as one of the four, since he'll likely just be a cameo.

Hated the whole Bee has been around since the 1940s stuff. Hope they retcon that for this film.

It looks like Steve Jablonsky won't be returning to compose the score for this movie.

Thank goodness.

To be fair Jablonsky seems like a decent composer, but I've never really felt like his style of music fits the Transformers brand. I'm also getting sick of every big Hollywood movie essentially having the same generic score. Since it's set in the 80s, the Bumblebee movie should find someone who actually composed music for movies during that decade, or at very least find someone who can imitate that style. I really don't want this movie to sound like another generic 2010s action movie when there's much more interesting stuff to explore with 1980s-style music.

http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/thread...movie.1125954/

Edit: Jablonsky's remark seems to imply that the movie will be coming out in summer of 2018, but the actual release date is still set for Christmas 2018. Either Jablonsky never heard about the movie getting pushed back, or...or...they've pushed the release date back to summer again...is...is that too much to hope for?

I believe the title is "Transformers Universe: Bumblebee".

It looks like the title's been changed to "Bumblebee: The Movie".

I like it, it's has a retro sound to it, not to mention it's a nice throwback to the '86 "Transformers: The Movie". I'm curious if "Transformers Universe: Bumblebee" is still the official title or not.

I LOVE the font, it's super retro and fun looking. I hope they use it on all the marketing and in the movie itself.

Me too. The past Transformers movies have probably left people skeptical, but I'm surprised there isn't a bit more excitement for this one. It's the first Transformers live-action film without Bay directing, so it feels like it should be a bigger deal.

Yeah...but it's also spinoff movie set in Bumblebee's past where there aren't really a significant number of autobots to get stoked for; more human characters actually. If they're dialing back, the hype for it would certainly dial back accordingly.

It's also maybe too soon for any hype.

Yeah, that's true. I personally enjoy smaller-scale stories, but this type of thing isn't for a lot of people.

I would guess that we won't see that in the movie. It was kind of implied that Bumblebee took on the Camaro disguise specifically to appeal to Sam Witwicky (it was the only car in the lot that he seemed attracted to). Considering this movie takes place before Sam was even born, there would be no real reason for Bee to take on the disguise of a Camaro. Of course this series isn't known for strong continuity, so they could always forget that, lol.

I honestly hope they don't have him turn into a Camaro, I would really prefer them get away from the Bay stuff and just make it a good standalone adventure.

Having enjoyed the first 3, hated the fourth because it was one of the worst pieces of trash around. avoided the fifth entirely, i was definately thinking this maybe worth a watch now bay is out of the picture, checked out the cast and the lead actor = John Cena. this is going to be a disaster.

But if the other Transformers movies sucked, why should anyone assume this one will be good? Yeah, its not Bay who is directing it anymore, but its the world Bay created. Bay poisoned the well, this new movie will not get the benefit of the doubt from most people.

Once we get a trailer I imagine the hype will begin to build. I am hoping this can get the franchise back on track after TLK.
