The next movie in the “Transformers” franchise has its official title. At a virtual event, director Steven Caple Jr. revealed that the next film in the blockbuster franchise will be called “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts”. The director revealed that “Rise of the Beast” will centre on Optimus Prime, and will follow up the ’80s-set “Bumblebee” by being set in the year 1994. In the film, audiences will see Optimus Prime forming his lasting bond with the people of Earth. Bumblebee will also be returning for the new film, taking the form of a classic yellow Camaro, but decked out with off-road features.
The film will will be shot around the world, including Montreal, and will be set primarily in Brooklyn, New York, as well as Machu Picchu, Peru. Joining the robot aliens are human characters — Noah, played by Anthony Ramos, and Elina, played by Dominique Fishback.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts is set to debut in theatres June 24, 2022.
