Creative team

Movie Prequel was produced primarily by the team that spawned The War Within and The Gathering: writer Simon Furman and penciler Don Figueroa. IDW editor-in-chief Chris Ryall also assisted with the writing.

Items of note

  • The series was originally released without a story title, as "Transformers Official Movie Prequel". The original working title, "Prime Directive" (which was also the title of the first Dreamwave Generation 1 mini-series and the working title of the movie's script), was included in the original scripts, and was also mentioned in early solicitations for the series.[1]
  • Two comics originally produced in cooperation with Target (later also collected as the Movie Prequel Special) were also both originally released under the title Transformers: Movie Prequel, and tie in to the story of this series (although the later-released Target comic contradicts issue 4).
  • An animated version of this comic (with voice acting), named Transformers: Beginnings, was included on a special bonus disc included with a Wal-Mart exclusive edition of the Movie DVD.
