A few weeks ago I had released some news on the upcoming Transformer sequel and noq i have more exciting news.
IDW Publishing which is working on a five-part prequel miniseries to Michael Bay's Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen titled "Transformers: Destiny",the movie will be animated most likely and the movie will bridge the gap between the first and second movie.They are hoping to explain the full story so most viewers will fully understand the movie and whats going on.
In a full interview the makers of the mini series had this to say:
"[We're going to] explore the background of The Fallen - the main villain of the movie - as well as expand on the 'Reign of Starscream' story that we're doing and tie everything in to what this next movie is going to be," explained writer Chris Mowry, who partners on the book with artist Alex Milne. "The next movie starts out with just tons of action and there's obviously going to be a lot of questions, so we're hoping to answer some of those beforehand."
At the end of "Transformers," audiences were treated to a grand speech from Optimus Prime issuing the call for his off-world Autobots to head to Earth. We also saw Starscream blast into space after the defeat of his leader Megatron. So where did he go? Mowry's "Reign of Starscream" miniseries - currently on shelves - answers that question and leads directly into "Destiny."
"'Reign of Starscream' starts right at the very end of that big last action sequence in Mission City. Starscream realizes that Frenzy, the little portable jump drive had accessed all the information the humans had about the All Spark, so he gets this idea of, 'If I could get all the information that's stored within Frenzy's body, I might be able to rebuild the All Spark back on Cybertron and therefore everyone will think I'm this great leader.' His motivations are more for the species. He's definitely at odds with what Prime and Megatron have been doing. He thinks that they've both been consumed with greed, for their own selfish reasons, but as he finds out, his plans start to fall through as he's kind of becoming overwhelmed with the same greed that they had."
the mini series will hit stores in December...
