E! Online caught up with Transformers director Michael Bay at Hollywood Film Festival's Hollywood Awards and asked about the sequel:
So, where do you go with it? How do you up the stakes?
It's not about upping it. It's about still keeping the heart.
Any new characters coming in?
Oh, yeah…a lot of fun stuff. I keep telling the writers, remember the heart and the magic, remember the heart and the magic. It's not about being bigger.
DreamWorks is targeting a June 26, 2009 release date for the follow-up.
