It's been a while since we got any updates about the next Transformers movie but we're finally getting an amazing update. The official title for the next film has just been revealed and it practically confirms that Beast Wars is coming!
The revelation was dropped at Paramount Pictures' recent presentation with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and director Steven Caple Jr. The official title was confirmed to be Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and will feature a few Beast Wars characters. However, the main focus of the film will still be Optimus Prime.
Bonaventura confirmed that they had wanted to give the audience something new for a change. "We have exhausted, I would say, the battle between the Autobots and Decepticons," he said. Bonaventura then added that it was time to explore new stories.
"How do we find a new set of villains and priorities, saving the world is left to the Autobots and in this case the Maximals. Part of the new news, if you've seen the other movies, you're going to see villains you've never seen before and a lot of elements we've never done before," he concluded.
It was also confirmed that the new movie will take place in 1994 and that Optimus Prime will be the main hero of the film. However, other details, like the premise of the new movie, were not immediately revealed. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts will star Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback. The movie is scheduled for release on June 24, 2022.
