The main Transformers film franchise producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, stated he is currently overseeing the scripting of two Transformers films sequels. He said so as part of a bigger interview to a Japanese movie news website as part of the Bumblebee press tour. One of the films is the next big tentpole Transformers film to follow The Last Knight, while the other is a sequel to Bumblebee. Please keep in mind that the film following the last Knight was already said to be a new experience and thus may involve a new storyline rather than finishing what was started in the Last Knight. The Bumblebee sequel is said to be a buddy movie featuring Optimus and Bumblebee. So one would take place in the past while the other in the present.

Here is a quote from the website:

Throughout the day, Di Bonaventura talks with smiles," Our greatest mission is to the audience To be satisfied, "to meet the expectations of the audience." To that end, he and his colleagues are already working on a new series. "We are already working on two projects and are in the process of writing a script. One is the latest in the main family series following Transformers: The Last Knight and the other is a sequel to Bumblebee So, we are thinking of works where Optimus Prime and Bumblebee will be the buddy (buddy), but when Optimus and Bumblebee are the movies of the protagonists ... how human beings get involved in their drama In the first place, the size is different between human beings and theirs .... It's a worrying point (laughs).


This of course puts the whole kibosh on fans wanting a complete reboot. Of course, the fact that the same producer overseeing the entire franchise at Paramount had confirmed that there was no reboot all along was also a pretty good hint.

Last Knight Sequel—
Please no. No sequel to the Last Knight. It was the worst one yet in a parade of garbage that has gotten progressively worse with each film. Please no. These are trash films that can only be enjoyed by mocking them and watching them as a joke. The characters all act like they are high on cocaine, the robots aren't even treated as characters, the stories contradict themselves, the scripts are banal, the humor isn't funny to anyone but stoned frat boys, the women are objectified and there are racist and misogynist themes throughout.
Also, they are aggressively stupid.
Please, just make them stop.


Bumblebee sequel —
Okay, I'll go to that.

I don't think they are bringing bay back for the mainline movies do expect bee movie storytelling to bleed through.

I think a sequel to The Last Knight would be great! As long as it starts out with a flashback to the final moments of The Last Knight, then suddenly you see Optimus Prime waking up in his bed all upset, and he's his old G1 self, and Alita-One, lying next to him, asks him if he had a bad dream, and he's like, "Oh, man, a nightmare," referring to the entire Bay-verse run and we all learn it was all just a dream and not part of canon and the movie proceeds from there.

I really don't care about the movies themselves anymore
Mostly because they turn everyone into hateful idiots.

I bailed out of the Bay films with Dark of the Moon, so have no interest in a sequel to Last Knight.
I am interested in the Bumblebee sequel.

I'm not Anti-Bayverse like some, but I do have a concern for a Last Knight sequel.
Last Knight built up to Unicron, if they're keeping the old continuity then that has to be where they go next, it's literally the only move they have, and I cannot see a way for them to do Justice to Unicron without destroying the Earth.
This was one of my few issues with Prime; Unicron is the big, planet eating devil of the transformers Mythology and by making him the core of earth they removed any chance of him fulfilling the classic role.
It's almost Ironic, the Aligned universe maintains Unicron's Evil space god role, but completely deviates from the real Unicron imagery, for the worse in my view, while IDW nailed a modern take on Unicron's appearence, but then eliminated his Evil God thing (the final nail in the 'deconstruct all transformer mythology' the last year or so of the old universe seemed to focus on) and made him a weapon of vengeance against Cybertron.
Can't we just get Unicron with all the best bits. Well obviously not in the films unless they actually do destroy the Earth.
Hey, maybe they'll reboot after that, I mean IDW hit reboot after doing Unicron, And with the corner they're painted into they have no choice, they could even have it that destoying Unicron caused some qauntum surge and caused the timeline to reset, with the slast shots of the film being Cybertron as seen in Bumblebee. For that with Bumblebee 2, since last I heard official word now say it is a different timeline, can they retcon that he didn't scan a Camaro, or changed his mind and re-scanned a Beetle, please, Bumblebee Bumblebee may not have been a perfect representation of G1 Bee, but he was still the best Bumblebee we've had, because Bee is meant to be the little guy, the small car, there are litterally dozens of autobots that can turn into big cars, give us our Bug back!

Where did you hear that its a different timeline? Bee 2 is not a reboot, it's a prequel-sequel set between bee and Transformers 07. As been stated there has been no rebooting. I suspect if anything they may just conviently forget all about the last knight for the whole and just keep the other four movies and move on from there (or establish that unicron inside the earth is only the gods intelligence which escapes into the cosmos after playing a game of possess the bot and there merges asteroids till he's the planet eater we all know)

I didn't dislike TLK but it wasn't a TFMovie, it was something completely different. AOE was even worse, in my opinion but AOE was somehow in the continuity and, moreover, had some way of development for the plot: TLK is a colpete dead eand. Even though there was that woman in the final walking near the horn of unicron, the plot went too astray to be seriously developed. For example: what is supposed to do the whole planet Earth with Cybertron lying on its surface?

I think that anyhow a new movie will start form TLK it will be a complete disaster.

Well this kinda sucks, but it's to be expected I suppose. As long as it's not as outstandingly bad as TLK I'll be OK with it- I enjoyed every movie that wasn't TLK, so who knows, there might be a chance of it not being atrocious.

Well there will almost certainly be a different director attached and probably a new writer.

Honestly I don't blame Bay for TLK being so bad-I lay that blame at the feet of the "writers' room" (and also Izabella, AKA the WORST human character in the movieverse, which is saying something). Keep Bay and give him a decent writer to work with and IMO you have a good chance of a good movie.

Of course Knight as director would be better, but I'd take Bay.

Also AOE did something none of the other films did, they had Prime be a main character.

He made me laugh anyways.

It should be "This of course puts the whole kibosh on entitled crybabies wanting a complete reboot."

I still dont get how any of this matters to anyone. The Bumblebee movie proved that you can still make a film everyone will enjoy without needing a complete reboot. You can still have humans, still have the military, and even have bayverse faces and its ok.

But it's still not MY Transformers! It's still not catering to MY very specific narrow-minded tastes and opinions! If it isn't EXACTLY like how things were back when I was 5 years old, then it SUUUUCKS!!!

:P ;)
