The Transformers Live-Action Films Are Getting … An Animated Spin-Off. Really.


In an odd backwards move, the Transformers live-action films will receive an animated spin-off, indicating that everything in the world of Transformers has officially gone full circle. It’ll actually be an animated feature film as opposed to a TV series, but if anything, that’s even more perplexing.

This film will still be part of the Michael Bay iteration of the Transformers world, which means … I have no idea what it means, because I have no clue how Michael Bay’s vision for Transformers could possibly translate into animated form. But maybe I’m just not imaginative enough. My dear commenters, that’s where you come in!
