Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has just dropped its trailer and it looks like we are in for another wild ride with our favourite Autobots. The seventh instalment in the long-running Transformers series brings back the Autobots along with the Maximals to fight Unicron. Rise of the Beasts is a prequel to the existing Transformers movies and is the newest entrant to the franchise since 2018’s Bumblebee. Paramount Pictures will be releasing the film later this summer.

The seventh instalment sees our favourite Transformers fighting their robot enemies in the 1990s. We also spotted an iconic sports car from the 90s (we can’t stop gushing over that classic Porsche 911) in the trailer. Besides those classic cars, the movie also boasts a stellar ensemble cast with Peter Cullen once again voicing Optimus Prime.

‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’: Plot synopsis

The first official trailer only shows a glimpse of what we can expect from the seventh Transformers movie. While the storyline isn’t entirely clear, it seems like our Autobots will be joining hands with the Maximals and several animal-like robots to fight Unicron, a new villain in the Cybertronian universe seeking to devour Earth. As always, two human protagonists get drawn into the mess (no Megan Fox is not reprising her role). The trailer also hints at the presence of Maximals on Earth for centuries.

It’ll be interesting to see the Transformers during the 90s, a time when technology on Earth wasn’t as advanced as the franchise has shown in previous instalments. Moreover, we get to see Bumblebee after seven years, following the events of the 1987 movie starring Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena.

A quick look at the cast

The cast of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts includes Anthony Ramos, Dominique Fishback, Luna Lauren Velez and Tobe Nwigwe in the leading roles. Peter Cullen, John DiMaggio, Michelle Yeoh, Pete Davidson, Ron Perlman, Peter Dinklage, Colman Domingo and others take over as voice artists. The movie is directed by Steven Caple Jr.
