I honestly was going to hold off talking about Transformers:Rise of the Beasts/Transformers:Beast Awakening for a little bit. Right now it's been announced and a few details have been given out. That's nice, but whatever there is to talk about has already been. The announcements and various rumors that may or not be true is all we have to go by for now. Not to mention, with the daily bios and text fiction I've been posting, I didn't want to overdo it. But there's a few things I'd really like to say about the new movie. Do people still say YOLO?
The new movie will be following the Bumblebee movies newer narrative. Notice I didn't say reboot? That's because Bumblebee was both a prequel and a reboot. You could take it as a new beginning or an earlier adventure he had. Transformers has never had the tightest continuity and that's always been pretty evident. At best it's been a squint a little and shrug before saying 'ok'. I'm not making excuses here, just stating the facts. For me and to the film makers, it's the follow up to Bumblebee. Which I loved. So I'm happy.We've got Autbots, Maximals, Predacons, Terrorcons, and Decepticons. This is starting to look more like an adaption of the 2001 Robots in Disguise. That ain't bad y'all. Optimus, Bumblebee, and a few other Autobots will get into an adventure that will see them cross paths with the other groups during the 90's in what looks like an epic road trip adventure. That sounds super fun. I do worry that there will be too much going on and that could bring down the movie. However big budget spectacles can still be really good movies. So we'll just have to wait and see. I hope it's good. If it's not, well, it wouldn't be the first time I've seen a bad movie. It's ok, I have a life.
Just like the other movies I'm looking forward to the new toys and all the cool promotional tie ins. It's a lot of fun and a big part of the reason I enjoy a new movie so much. I went nuts over Energon Igniters in Bumblebee. I'd love to see something like that return or some way cool Legion Class beast bots! Of course Studio Series versions would be wanted as well. It'd sure be cool to get a Cheetor combo at Burger King. Wait, no. A Maximal Meal at Beast King. I'll take 10!
