Peter Cullen Talks Transformers at SacAnime – Transformers 5 (June 24, 2016) & 6 To Go Back To Roots?
Peter Cullen was in attendance at the 2015 SacAnime Convention Jan. 2nd-4th, in which he spoke at a panel where he talked about having to audition for the Bay’s Transformers movie, who his inspirations were when he got into voice acting, and he even talks about where Optimus Prime’s trailer goes when it “magically” disappears in some of the G1 episodes (FYI, he’s been wondering where it goes as well). Probably the most interesting part of the panel was when he was asked about the tone of the upcoming Transformers movies; to which he replied that, “There is a sense that Transformers movies are going into a darker area. I think I brought the concern to the movie studio and certainly to the writers. Perhaps…Transformers 5 and 6 movies will go back more to its roots. There was an occasion where one line [in Transformers: Age Of Extinction] which Optimus Prime had, I did not want to say. It was my gut instinct and certainly my commitment to the character… not to say the line. But I was told to say. You can’t fight the big boys. I think you all know what that line was.”
The fifth installment in Bay’s Transformers movies is expected to be due out on June 24th, 2016. For more in Transformers news be sure to stick with The Allspark. You can hit the break below to view the full panel.
