Paramount Pictures has released the first official trailer for Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, the new film in the live-action Transformers feature film series. The movie will bring in the fan-favorite characters from the Beast Wars spinoff series for the very first time. The new film will also see the return of classic Transformers characters that would be impossible to exclude like Optimus Prime (voiced again by Peter Cullen), Bumblebee, Arcee, and Wheeljack.
ransformers: Rise of the Beasts is officially described as follows: “Returning to the action and spectacle that first captured moviegoers around the world 14 years ago with the original Transformers, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will take audiences on a ’90s globetrotting adventure and introduce the Maximals, Predacons, and Terrorcons to the existing battle on earth between Autobots and Decepticons.” Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback lead the human cast for the film which includes some surprising voice actors including Ron Perlman as the gorilla-inspired Optimus Primal, Michelle Yeoh as fellow Maximal Airazor, and Pete Davidson as Autobot Mirage.
This will be the 7th movie in the transformers series which was all kicked off by the Michael Bay movie back in 2009. The series was given the soft reboot treatment with 2017’s Bumblebee, a solo movie that also dialed back the action to the 1980s. The upcoming Rise of the Beasts will take place in the 1990s.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will release in Australia on June 8 2023 with international release set for June 9 2023
