Entertainment Weekly have published a new article, "How Bumblebee's changes could save Transformers — and lead to an Optimus Prime movie". That deconstructs the past Transformers films with the intent of finding a pattern in the soon to be released, "Bumblebee" movie that hits theaters at Xmas time.
EW had a chance to hit the films exexcutive producer, Lorenzo di Bonaventura, with some of the harder questions about what Bumblebee, the VW, and the focus on females means. Which, EW has observed there is a risk of "incensing the hardcore fanboys". Read on to get Di Bonaventura's take on this and more from the Bumblebee movie interview.
“What we are focused on is expanding the experience, which does expand your fan base if you get it right,” di Bonaventura says. “If you get it wrong, you’ll probably have a little backlash, but I don’t think we got it wrong. I know we didn’t get it wrong with her, that’s for sure.”
Setting the story in the ‘80s was also a nod to the original fans, the ones who sustained the Transformers movies through all their modern excesses.
“It gave us the opportunity to Gen 1,” di Bonaventura said, using the term fans have for the first generation of Transformers toys and stories. “When you look at the robots, they’re not exactly like in the animated show, because they would look goofy today. But they have, I’ll say, a little more of the silhouette of those.”
