The saga will return, but with a spin-off inspired by the Beast War series and which will plunge us into 1994 alongside the Animutants.
This Tuesday, June 22, Paramount Pictures brought together journalists from around the world for a mysterious conference. The event, which was held exclusively online, was dedicated to the new installment of the Transformers saga. The studios presented the new feature film in the franchise in detail and even revealed a name. Transformers: Rise of the Beasts should be released on our screens in July 2022, enough to allow it to find its audience among fans of fighting between metamorphic cars.
To put these new adventures into images, and ensure the legacy of the saga initiated in 2007 by Michael Bay, the studios have recruited a connoisseur. Steven Caple Jr, who directed Creed II, should offer viewers new digital clashes between Autobots and their new enemies. For Lorenzo Di Boneventura, producer of the saga, this choice of director was obvious. “We wanted someone who grew up with the Transformers, the toys and the animated series.” In front of the camera, Paramount also lifted the veil on the identity of the actors who will play the main characters. Anthony Ramos (In the heights) will play Noah, a former military man who is his family’s father figure and is trying to find his way. Dominique Fishback (The Deuce) She will play Elena, a researcher in a museum who studies artefacts.

After exploring the 80s with Bumblebee, the saga offers a new foray into the past. Set in 1994, the plot of this new film will take us mainly to New York. This is also the first time that the transformers officially go to the Big Apple and it will undoubtedly be an opportunity for the filmmaker to turn the city into a playground for robotic creatures, be they good or bad. The characters should also travel to the far reaches of Peru, to Machu Picchu. This place, loaded with culture, obviously plays an important role in the plot. Lorenzo Di Boneventura also had fun: “We asked to explore Machu Picchu, but they said no!”
If not on the side of the robots that rub shoulders on the screen, there will be a lot of people. Obviously the endless war between the Decepticons and the Autobots is over. “We wanted to give viewers something new, we exploited the war between Autobots and Decepticons for a long time. You’re going to see new villains and Transformers you’ve never seen. ” Cartoon inspired Beast wars broadcast between 1996 and 1999 (Animators), Rise of the Beasts will notably stage Maximals like Airazor or Rhinox. The Terrorcons and Predacons will play the main antagonists while we find Bumblebee and Optimus Prime on the side of the good guys. The latter will always be voiced by Peter Cullen and will appear in his G1 version. Thus, this opus should explore how after arriving on Earth, he became the protector of our planet.
See you on June 22, 2022 on our screens to discover Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.
