Hasbro Revealed New Animated Series and Movie

In a press and investors meeting, Hasbro revealed some of the their future plans for the Transformers franchise for TV and movies. The highlights are:

- The current season of Transformers: Robots in Disguise will be its last

- The replacement cartoon is called Transformers: Cyberverse with Chapter 1 coming in 2018 and Chapter 2 in 2019. Series will be a mix of new and retold old stories. Imagery suggests a heavy Generation One influence but could jump eras (say Beast Wars for example).

- An animated movie is still in the works set in the Movieverse. No details on story, release date, etc except it would be released by Paramount Pictures via Hasbro's Allspark Pictures studio.

- Hasbro asked Paramount to bump Bumblebee release date from Summer to December 21, 2018. Reason not provided but assume to try to take advantage of the Holiday season for movie related toys and merchandise.

- Hasbro roadmap includes 2019 release of Transformers 6

The main takeaway is Hasbro continues to have high confidence in Transformers as a toy, movie and TV franchise.
