To sum up Travis Knights interview in a nutshell...
“We wanted to keep the film in the same universe as the previous films, but I wanted to everything to be like my childhood only and have everything G1, because I hate change and everything has to be exactly as it was in the 80’s.
When paramount told me “FINE, JUST GET OUT’VE MY SIGHT PLEASE!!” You wouldn’t know how Liberating it was to make everything G1 and still call it a prequel to piss everyone off LoL.” ;)
(Bit long, but thought I’d make my first post big)

Oh yeah...my name’s Ryan. :CON:
-I’m just a casual, mostly chill Aussie doing Tradework and lovin robots.
-that being said, I may Make the occasional long read...oops
-I actually don’t hate G1 (despite how this post comes across :lol: ).
-I like the first 3 movies :michaelbay:
- Prime and Animated are Good stuff.
- I appreciate when continuity’s try to be interesting.
- hope I can fit in nice and easy.
- I can’t edit my profile and I don’t know how to.

I’m still confused. Does this mean Travis confirmed Bee being a reboot?

Yeah, he doesn't outright say if they ended up rebooting or not, kinda instead beating around the bush on either side of the matter.

So, business as usual.

It seems like DiBonaventura has put out a statement almost every week for the past 4 or 5 weeks, each one making less sense than the previous. At this point, BB is just a solid film, and I personally don't care if it's a reboot or not. DiBonaventura's statements are to the point of not even being news really. Wait until Paramount actually has another movie in development, (not just random ideas) then tell us something.

This is from Knight, though.

He said the same he always said, a pequel to what we know with a bunch of elements that dont line up. A stand alone film for fans of movie bumblebee.

yeah, but its not something we didnt already know. The big thing people want to know is if we are done with bayverse. Bumblebee which stradles very closely to the prequel territory did not offer a definitive answer (purposefully) and I don't think we will get one. But I dont think it matters really. Bumblebee has a ton of Bayverse influence and was still great. As I wrote before, I dont think fans dislike Bayverse really, they just dislike bay. And Bumblebee was our first look at that distinction. I mean, he had the same Bayverse face and the same radio voice gimmick, criticisms that have been going 10 years now, and yet people still liked it.

AOE had just as much reboot elements as Bumblebee (new cast, new characters, new looks) but since Bay was still at the helm, no one ever mentioned the word reboot.

I'm over the Bayverse stuff, but I have nothing against Bay.

Whether people like it or not, the guy is a talented Director, and while as Director, he has to shoulder a lot of the criticism, to me, the movie got progressively worse and worse.

What changed?

Not the Director.

I dont feel the films got worse though. I do think TLK is the worst but its not like AOE was worse than DOTM and on and on. I think what happened is the director kept doing the same thing and while some of us enjoyed it at first, the repetition got to us.

Also, Bumblebee is the best scoring film amongst fans and critics (it is my favourite live action TF movie) and what changed there was the director. Both BB and TLK came out of the writer's room, so it was the same think tank. And yet the biggest difference was the director.

They may have come out of the writers room, but there were different writers.

After AOE and TLK, I was actually wishing for Orci and Kurtzman to come back.

Or did people's tolerances lower? I agree either way. I found each movie less enjoyable than the previous.

I have nothing against Bay (I like watching car chases and things blow up) but the TF movies never delivered much of what I wanted.

I enjoyed the Bee movie. Was it better, was it worse? That's an conversation I don't care to take part in.

I have a feeling the people above Knight wanted it both ways so they could go back to the Bay continuity in case Bumblebee didn’t do well.

People change. And over 10 years is a long time to change. Things I liked before, I don't like anymore and vice-versa.

I used to like cartoon with mean and edgy humor like the Simpson, South Park, and Family Guy. Now I just cringe and hate the mean humor. I used to love obscene and mindless violence and gore. Now I just find it sad. I used to find movies about social situations and human things boring. Now I find them interesting.

… Getting old is weird...

Thats what I was trying to get at before.

Bumblevee film adapted into Japanese chibi style shorts, episodes 1-3

PostPosted: Sun Apr 14, 2019 12:12 am

In accordance with the Bumblebee movie, the official @Bumblebee_JP Twitter account is releasing a new chibi style anime series! They are 3 episodes in, each at around one minute and a half, and essentially retell the Bumblebee film.

Part 1 focuses on Bumblebee losing his memory, after Blitzwing attacks him, thus making him hide as a Volkswagen. Charlie finds him, and brings him to her home, which results in Bumblebee being scared of the dog, Conan. The tweet can be found here.

Part 2 starts off with Charlie wondering where Bumblebee hailed from, and they soon practice hiding, though Bumblebee doesn't seem to be good at it, destroying things. He accidently activates Optimus' holographic message, confusing the both of them. The tweet can be found here.

Part 3, Bumblebee learns how to cook! To no one's suprise, he absolutely fails, irritating Conan, destroying the inside of the house, and leaving the door open for Conan to run after. Charlie comes home, and chases after the dog, but they are aprehended by soldiers. Bumblebee comes and fights the men, and leaps away with Charlie and Conan. The tweet can be found here.

Thoughts on these cute animated shorts? Watch them from Twitter, or the YouTube links below, and reply in the Pub forums below!

This series of shorts is called "Bumblebee's First Life on Earth".

Episode 1 is titled "Picked Up From The Junkyard", episode 2 is "Hiding In The Park!", and episode 3 is simply "Cooking!"

Charlie (and I think all of the other voices, but I'm not sure) is voiced by Ryohei Kimura.

Soo... I picked up the DVD/Digial/Blue-ry set for the Movie. Am I missing something, or are the Special Features only on the disc [i]for the player I don’t have[/i? Haven’t looked to see if I can get into them with the Digital side yet, but if I can’t then frankly that’s a crock of spit. What’s even the point then of the DVD? I was on the fence whether I would even use the Digital option but reviews about the extras made it seem worthwhile. I never heard anywhere that they were Blu-Ray exclusive and I feel jipped.
