Toy Story 4 Director Is Developing an Animated Transformers Prequel Movie

In 1986, Transformers: The Movie brought Hasbro’s “Robots in Disguise” to the big screen for the first time. Nearly 35 years later, a new animated Transformers prequel film is in the works. Via Deadline, Paramount Pictures has hired Toy Story 4 director Josh Cooley to helm the film, which was written by Ant-Man and the Wasp writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari. Cooley is overseeing Barrer and Ferrari’s final draft.

The new animated Transformers movie will explores the war on Cybertron between the Autobots and the Decepticons. It will also revolve around the relationship between Optimus Prime and Megatron, the leaders of the rival factions. Previous animated series, comics, and video games have also touched on Optimus and Megatron’s shared past. But it’s unknown if this will be a completely new take on their origin.

Additionally, the animated prequel is reportedly separate from the live-action Transformers films and the Bumblebee spinoff. Deadline notes that the project was accelerated “because so much of the work can be done while respecting social distancing. However, there’s currently no update on the two new live-action Transformers movies that are also in development.

Hasbro/eOne will produce the film alongside Paramount. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will also be on board as executive producers.
