Griffith Observatory is a private area and its authorities were initially reluctant about allowing shooting to go on with the film. However, the filmmakers were able to get permission, through its officials Leonard Nimoy and Susan Bay (Nimoy's wife, whom Michael Bay is related to), to shoot the Autobots' arrival to Earth and their council. Nimoy had starred as Megatron's successor Galvatron in The Transformers: The Movie (1986) and went on to star as Optimus Prime's predecessor Sentinel Prime in Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011).
