“I do not intend to do Optimus’ solo film. In the sequel to Bumblebee, I’m thinking of two characters, Optimus and Bumblebee. That way, Bumblebee can do something with Optimus.”
Lorenzo hat erklärt, dass der Kumpelfilm höchstwahrscheinlich wie Lethal Weapon sein wird. Er erwähnte auch, dass die Rolle von Optimus größtenteils der Rolle von Danny Glovers von Roger Murtaugh entspricht.
“When I heard that the movie ‘Bumblebee’ will be made, I was wondering what Optimus would think. Bumblebee was supposed to be Optimus’ sidekick. That’s why I want to write about Optimus as I drew him in Bumblebee in detail.”
Und er spricht davon, das Transformers Bumblebee 2 ein bisschen mehr von ‘Beyhem’ hat.
“…the audience had asked us several times, in different ways, ‘I want to get to know a Transformer better.” We did that. In some respects, definitely a tip to what the audience had said to us. The interesting part is when you set out to do something like that, you don’t exactly know the ramifications of it. In this case, the ramification of it was, for the people who didn’t love the movie, was not enough action. Because you’re telling a more intimate story, therefore you can’t.” stated the producer.
“Several lessons have come out of this. One is that we have the freedom to tell almost any story. The other is that, how strongly the audience identified with the strength of character and emotion. I know the next Transformer, our attempt anyway, is to sort of do a fusion of Bumblebee and the Bay movies…a little more Bayhem. And a little bit more of the character falling in love within the emotional dynamic of the movie. One of the things I want to do—and I hope we pull it off—is, we did it with Bumblebee because he’s so cute and he’s so accessible, but he can’t talk. I think the more human we can make these characters, the more people are going to like them.”
