Following the demise of HD DVD, it was only a matter of time before Paramount caved in and announced plans to bring Transformers to the Blu-Ray format. When it was announced Paramount was going the HD DVD route, director Michael Bay was pretty upset about the announcement, only to change his tune a few short days later. Perhaps it had something to do with the HD DVD camp throwing a lot of money Paramount’s way.

My guess is the studio got to keep all the money even after Toshiba and others admitted defeat, so now it is full steam ahead with Blu-Ray as the preferred format.

The Blu-ray edition of “Transformers” that Par is preparing will include extensive extras and special features, including a commentary from Bay and two docus about the film’s human and robotic stars. Segments include exec producer Steven Spielberg discussing his love for the franchise and a detailed look at the casting process and real-world weapons provided by the military.

Principal photography for the Transformers 2 movie (with the return of Jazz?) is set to begin this week.
