Transformers 5: Should we necessarily have seen the previous opus?

Cinema 30 December, 2016

Transformers 5 is, as its title suggests, the fifth film in the saga. But must it necessarily have seen the previous four opus to understand his plot?
To faithfully follow a franchise is a long-term job! Not only must we be able to see all the films – without falling behind – but, in addition, we must retain all the information they reveal to us. In short, as that we must keep the thread which, when a saga stretches like this on more than a decade can sometimes be a complicated pile. So naturally, the problem also arises for the fifth installment in the franchise Transformers Michael Bay, who will arrive in June in cinemas. Especially because, hey, the director does not do things by half and decided to reappear in Transformers 5 characters like Lennox (Josh Duhamel) who were absent from the fourth installment. Obviously for fans hardcore saga, back into the world of Autobots should not be a problem. On the other hand, for those who skipped an episode or who do not remember very well what happened in the previous opuss, the situation can become a bit more problematic. But do not panic ! The editing of melty has a good (and reassuring) new to give to those of you who belong to this second category.
For not, according to Lorenzo di Bonaventura, producer of Transformers 5 , it will not be necessary to have seen ALL the episodes of the franchise , nor have any recall from the previous adventures of Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, to understand the film. He relates to Collider: ” The movie’s opening scene will introduce what we intend to explore the mythology [franchise] Therefore, it is not necessary to have seen the other previous films, because. we will re-establish, say, the mystery of the film and the direction it will take. “. Basically, even if you think you know all of the saga Transformers , the fifth volume intends to redefine number of elements. Good, though, it’s better to know who are at least Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg) if you want to understand their relationships and what they make in this whole story. Especially because, to our surprise, Optimus Prime appears to turn against Bumblebee in Transformers 5, as we have seen in a recent post , which is as surprising as disturbing. And that, only those who have at least seen one or two films of the franchise will seize the upsetting side! Have you seen the previous four opus?
