Aaron Archer, the front man for Hasbro, says that the Transformers book will be supportive of the live action film that is set for release on July 4, 2007. Clarifying, Ryall told Newsarama: â€œThe movie is a good two years away, so weâ€™re got a nice window to establish our stuff beforehand, so we can establish our world, and do our own thing before the movie gets here. Since weâ€™re doing the kind of â€˜Ultimatesâ€™ approach, where weâ€™re re-telling things from scratch, weâ€™re hoping that it will appeal for movie fans who might find all the continuity of the previous series a little daunting.â€
Elaborating on their relationship with IDW, Archer said that there will be complete collaboration between IDW and Hasbro. IDW will present scripts and artwork to the company prior to publish, though Archer did not discuss whether IDW was contractually obligated to do so. Along with the regular Transformers series, IDW will publish Beast Wars, beginning in January. The miniseries will be written by Simon Furman.
