[TV] Roberto Orci Speaks on the Next Transformers Animated Show
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 08.07.2013



Speaking to IGN, Roberto Orci spoke about the next Transformers animated series and if it will continue after the end of Transformers: Prime. Below are some highlights.

Transformers Prime executive producer Jeff Kline is said to be working on the new show along with most of the Prime production team. Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman were also executive producers on the show and are said to be involved with the new show as producers as well.

On his and Kurtzman's involvement with the new show: "No, we are involved in it. We talked about it with Hasbro, and we're excited about it. It's not really a reboot, it's sort of a continuation of it [Transformers Prime] in a tonally different form. We want to make sure we're servicing the right audiences. We got to do a very adult version of Transformers that you just saw in this cartoon, a very sophisticated one, and we also want to make sure we don't leave other kids behind, who love Transformers too and don't want to be as scared as Transformers Prime could make you, that kind of thing. So we're going to have a good parallel series that is connected, but it's a little more friendly to the family."

Orci on if the show will continue the storyline of Transformers Prime: "We are discussing that very question right now. I'd love to have as much continuity as possible, and that's part of what's been fun about being a part of the Transformers universe since we jumped on the movies. It's trying to take all the research and all the things that they have -- giant bibles and binders of Transformers iterations. So we always tried to thread the needle as best we could of taking their best, favorite stories and kind of putting them in some order that was consistent. That's always our goal. The degree of success will be up to the audience."

Orci on if the show show will be more aimed at kids: "I would say that clever wit always makes it something more adult. I think the look of it, you may find, is more kid-friendly. But we certainly don't intend to be any less entertaining or any less Transformers. But there is a little bit of truth to that. I won't deny that also, yes, we're trying to make sure that younger kids who really love Transformers aren't put off by its intensity."

Orci on if Peter Cullen and Frank Welker will return: "Yes. Assuming they say yes. If they will come back, it's theirs!"
