It’s been rumoured that a Transformers: Beast Wars movie was in the works over at Paramount Pictures, and we’re now hearing that it could be a trilogy. Not only that, but the movies will also reportedly be set in space and won’t feature any human characters. This rumour comes from Daniel Richtman’s Patreon page.
Now, Daniel is pretty hit and miss these days. He seems to be pumping scoop after scoop out and I do feel there’s an element of guesswork to a lot of what he puts out there. That said, he has proven to be right on a few occasions, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t let you know what he has to say about the likes of Transformers moving forward.
It’s a really interesting time for the Transformers franchise. We’re now living in a post-Michael Bay Transformers world, and I actually thought the last movie in the franchise, Bumblebee, was pretty good. Interestingly enough, that film wasn’t directed by Bay. We’re now hearing that Paramount wants to get the ball rolling on the Beast Wars movies.
Transformers: Beast Wars could be a trilogy set in space with no human characters
I actually think that a Beast Wars trilogy makes so much sense for Paramount Pictures to do right now. They don’t really have that many franchises to lean on, apart from the Mission: Impossible films, and they won’t last forever.
