“I might let you know actually essential elements of this story, which is greater than a tease. That is one thing we have been attempting to do; we debated quite a bit about it in dwell motion, and it simply was financially unattainable to do, which is, the origin story of younger Megatron and younger Optimus. If you realize the origin, they began as associates, and over time issues devolved for them and so they ended up on two sides. So we’re telling the younger Optimus and the younger Megatron story.

The analogy for me is a bit like Krypton once you noticed the planet falling aside, and all that. We’re not there for a short while, we’re there your entire time of the film, we’re on Cybertron, however we’re within the problem that, if you realize the lore, they start to query the hierarchy of how their society has gotten stratified, and the way the widespread man does not have the voice, totally, that they wish to have,” the producer shares.
“We’re following very true to the origin story of it, and so it is actually enjoyable, too, as a result of I’ve gotten to see a few of it – it isn’t absolutely executed by any stretch of the creativeness, however listening to Optimus and Megatron not as who we all know them as, which we see their maturation on this expertise. So, in a way, you are listening to a distinct character since you’re listening to them earlier than they’ve matured.”
