Continuing the build-up of its movie side-company, after the Allspark Animation trademark registration, Hasbro has appointed a new head of Allspark Studios according to Variety: Greg Mooradian. The news brings the consequence of a development of Hasbro's current deal with Paramount going forward too, but for now, read more about the appointment here and below!

Hasbro has hired seasoned veteran Greg Mooradian to oversee the company’s film division, Allspark Pictures, as it attempts to create a full-fledged movie studio. As president of Allspark, he will oversee film and television production starting in January. Sources say the company has been making an effort to raise money to start its own studio for some time, and is trying to attract funding in the nine-figure range in order to properly develop its own slate of films. The hope is to transform itself into an industry player to rival Marvel Studios.

[...]

Mooradian is currently a production executive at Fox 2000. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Mooradian, who previously worked at Paramount, helping guide “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” to the big screen, as well as Hasbro hits like “G.I. Joe” and “Transformers.” He left Paramount in 2013.

Fellow Seibertronian Stuartmaximus has found a youtube video from CineMovie which has Peter Cullen confirming that you will hear his voice in the upcoming Bumblebee Live Action film. He is short and to the point with his "yes" as you can see below.
We do not know if that means the film will begin in current times and be told as an older tale or if we will hear the voice through narration or even if Peter Cullen will be voicing Optimus Prime at all, though it is what everyone would assume.

Collider Interviews with Peter Cullen and Frank Welker

Collider has posted a new interview with Transformers Legends Frank Welker and Peter Cullen, the longtime fan-favorite voices of Megatron and Optimus Prime! You can check out the full interview by following the above link, or read up on some snippets below, where the 2 legends talk about their ever evolving voice acting, the differences between providing voices for cartoons and movies, and more!

While most of their fans likely know the duo from their Transformers work, Cullen and Welker actually go back even further than that:

Peter Cullen: We go back to a cartoon series called Mighty Man and Yukk. [1979]

Frank Welker: Ah yes, yes, yes.

Cullen: And that’s when I first met Frank. But Frank had met me many, many times because he used to go to hockey games and I served hot dogs. [laughs]

Welker: I was a big fan of Peter’s. I used to watch him on the Sonny and Cher show when he did that little character up front. I did not know it was Peter at the time, but when I heard him doing that…

Cullen: The little man in the ball?

Welker: Yeah, the little man in the ball and those sound effects. I thought, whoever this is, I think I’m going to retire, he’s just too good.

.....

Obviously they’ve done both Transformers movies and TV shows. Here’s the biggest difference between those performances:

Cullen: One of the most obvious, for me, was when we did the cartoon series, we’d all be together in a small recording booth. It would be 8 to 10 characters staring into the glass with the director on the other side with the sound men. With the feature film, it was always working one-on-one with Michael Bay, the sound engineer, and a camera on your lips. So, yes, they were very, very different.

Welker: As Peter was saying, when you have a cast, you kind of play off each other. You can build … almost like a play, because obviously you read it as a play, so you have this nice interaction. When we did the series, standing next to Peter was always a benefit because you really get into it. You’re going hand-to-hand, but physically, you get the feeling of that person being there.

.....

With on-the-job hazards like that, you might wonder how Cullen and Welker have stayed healthy in this business for so long:

Welker: Early in my life, I probably abused my voice more than I should have. It is an instrument. You need to take care of yourself. If you have a session the next day, go to bed early, do vocal warm-ups on the way to the studio, that’s just about all you can do.

Cullen: My mom used to say, “Peter, don’t do this, you’re going to ruin your voice! It’s going to stay like that!” But when I was an acting student, I studied under an operatic coach named Bernard Diamant from New York. He described the basic instrument, as we all have, the human voice. I was particularly impressed with a remark that he made: A baby, when it’s born, has the most perfect vocal ability. Opera singers study to get back to that for years through the use of your diaphragm, the expansion of air in your chest and lungs, the use of tonal cavities that are built into your upper chest and your head.

LimitlessIQ Article Spotlighting Takara Designer Yuya Onishi

An article was recently posted on limitlessiq, in chinese, Spotlighting Takara Designer Yuya Onishi. He is one of the younger Takara designers, born in 84, which makes him working in Takara's Transformers brand quite poetic.

The article is more about his past, where we learn that he comes from Osaka and went to school to study mechanical designs for cars. However, he ended up designing toys since he felt there was more personal creativity with toy designs.

The article reiterates Takara's involvement in the Transformers toy development. It claims that the designer is shown the final form of both the robot and the vehicle and they must then come up with the conversion steps, parts design, material, and modeling. It is also within this stage that Takara comes up with the cost of a product which is related to all the previously mentioned factors.

The article ends on a touching note that what draws Yuya Onishi to this brand is how it affects people. He knows his designs will become someone's memory of a toy they picked up with whatever means they had, and thus he wants all these memories to be happy ones.

One other piece of movie-related news from Hascon deals with the second induction for the Transformers Hall of Fame, introduced by Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner - and featuring the producer of the Michael Bay directed movies from Paramount: Lorenzo di Bonaventura!

Starting with Transformers (2007), to Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon and then the new trilogy with Age of Extinction, The Last Knight and the next movie (plus of course the Transformers Universe: Bumblebee solo spin-off), di Bonaventura has been behind the scenes, helping shape what we have today in the live action universe. Check out the ceremony below, and head back here for the Susan Blu one that preceded it!
