The new part of “Transformers” will be released with the subtitle “The Rise of the Robots”. The story is inspired by the animated series spin-off Transformers: Battle of the Beasts (1996-1999), which told about the descendants of the Autobots and the Decepticons. It is them, Maximalov, Predacons and Terrorcons, who will be shown in the new film. For the first time, predators will receive a detailed backstory that explains their origins.
See villains and Autobots you’ve never seen before. When making any decision, be it a fight scene or a character, we wondered if we had done it already – shared producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura.
The story will unfold in 1994. “Transformers: The Rise of the Robots” will be a sequel to the movie “Bumblebee” (2018), which took place in 1987. The plot will tell how the Cybertrons are connected with the Earth and humanity.
The central hero will be Optimus Prime, which is just beginning its path of becoming. In the image of the main villain, the viewer will see Scrooge, the ruthless tracker of the Decepticons. The goal of the creators is to make the new part of the story about transformers as entertaining as possible, like the films of Michael Bay (“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, “Transformers: Age of Extinction”)
Anthony Ramos (Hamilton) and Dominic Fishback (Modern Love) will play the main acting roles. The film is directed by Stephen Caple Jr. (“Creed 2”). Filming will take place in Brooklyn, New York, and Peru, South America.
