‘Bumblebee’ Spinoff Will Begin Filming In August, ‘Transformers 6’ Planned For 2019

Transformers
Transformers: The Last Knight will be director Michael Bay’s final entry in the live-action film series, but the franchise will continue with a Bumblebee spinoff and a sixth installment of the main series. Now, producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura has revealed to Screen Rant that production on the Bumblebee film will begin in August and the sixth Transformers is targeting a summer 2019 release.

Di Bonaventura outlined the plan for the next two installments of the Transformers franchise:

“Well we’re going to shoot a prequel actually, a Bumblebee movie, which starts in August, so next summer we’ll see a Bumblebee movie. And then we hope to have another Transformers movie the following summer.”

When asked if the plan was to continuously release a new Transformers each year, Di Bonaventura explained that they will wait to see how audiences respond to upcoming films:

“Look, I always wait for the audience, because there’s an arrogance to getting ahead of your audience. When you do, you get punched. So we’ll wait each time. We’re planning a lot of movies, but you’ve got to have the audience’s support, because these movies are very expensive.”

Until then, fans can see the Transformers: The Last Knight. Here’s the official synopsis:

“The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock).

There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.”

Directed by Michael Bay, the film stars Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Stanley Tucci, Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Tyrese Gibson, Santiago Cabrera, Jerrod Carmichael, Liam Garrigan, Peter Cullen and John Goodman
