E! Online caught up with Transformers director Michael Bay at Hollywood Film Festival’s Hollywood Awards and asked about the sequel:
So, where do you go with it? How do you up the stakes?
It’s not about upping it. It’s about still keeping the heart.
Any new characters coming in?
Oh, yeahâ€¦a lot of fun stuff. I keep telling the writers, remember the heart and the magic, remember the heart and the magic. It’s not about being bigger.
DreamWorks is targeting a June 26, 2009 release date for the follow-up.
