The current pandemic has led to the temporary shutdown of the entertainment industry. There are many filmmakers who are working out a way to utilize this time at their disposal. Luckily they have been able to work remotely on animation.  Recently, work on a prequel to the Animated Transformers movie has begun. Hasbro’s Studio One and Josh Cooley the director of Toy Story 4 have come together to launch the prequel.
