One of Bumblebee’s greatest achievements is its arrival to Cybertron to portray the Autobots and Decepticons before they landed on Earth. Michael Bay’s movies to a great extent disregarded that piece of Transformers history, leaving people to gather hints about the inceptions of their rivalry from their present-day fights.
Be that as it may, in Bumblebee, helmed by Travis Knight from a script by Christina Hodson, fans don’t need to tune in to listen to speeches by Optimus Prime or Megatron about their cosmic-spanning strife. It really opens on the Transformers homeworld, exhibiting that a War for Cybertron film is the path forward, and correctly what the hailing franchise needs for a reset.
Bumblebee outlines how that can function in only two war scenes. The opening is a flashback that subtleties how Optimus Prime sent Bumblebee as a scout to Earth looking for shelter for the Autobots, who are losing the battle against the Decepticons. It’s a short yet sweet preface that is developed later to feature Optimus utilizing his blaster and slaughtering Decepticons.
Fans have been captivated with that source for a considerable length of time, as proved by the achievement of the Transformers: War for Cybertron computer game. Bumblebee sparks our interest, yet there’s such a great amount of material that can be utilized to “settle” the Paramount Pictures franchise. Here, we see Generation One forms of legends like Optimus, Bumblebee and Cliffjumper, and in addition Decepticons such as Shockwave, Soundwave and Ravage, portrayed in a route dedicated to the source material and fixing the mind-boggling structures and identities united onto them by the Bay movies.
Concentrating on the common war additionally fills in as a character study forf characters that weren’t done equity by before films, for example, Megatron and Starscream on the Decepticon side, and the Dinobots, Jazz and Ratchet on the Autobot side.
The war flashback really closes with Bumblebee flying off in his space case, and Optimus being surged by many Decepticons. Given that the Autobot pioneer makes it to Earth in the finale, a War for Cybertron story could fill in the accounting hole, and even achieve further back, digging into the philosophical debate the at long last ejected into a world-breaking conflict.
That piece of the mythos has been modified consistently throughout the decades, most as of late in IDW Publishing’s recently finished up Transformers comic arrangement, which portrays Optimus (an aggressive fighter named Orion Pax) and Megatron as faithful comrades who utilize their military clout to topple the forces that be. Cybertron’s powers were colonizers, and the team looked to annoy the world order. Bay’s films basically settled that the two were adversaries, however, something like this adds depth to their fight
These are center to the Transformers universe. Returning to the start and setting up a history (which IDW is incidentally doing again in 2019), instead of shoehorning in the legend for plot accommodation, constructs a coherence, something Paramount has attempted to accomplish.
At last, Bumblebee offers a new beginning for a true to life universe with so much potential.
